What was noticeable on Monday evening was that we suddenly had another outlet in the attacking half with an overlapping full-back down the right flank as well as the left in Olly. By and large, for the last 15 months or so since his injury, we've been putting square pegs in the round right-full back hole (with the fleeting exception of Omar Vassell) and I think it's shown both defensively and in an attacking sense.

I couldn't be there last night after planning to be, but I was thrilled to read updates on Twitter - it sounds like a really resilient and hard-working performance.

To finish outside the bottom four is a relief and now we can look forward to the cup final in a couple of weeks without worrying about anything - then the summer gives the gaffer an opportunity to take stock and start again.

There have been little green shoots of encouragement since that desperate run in the autumn where we couldn't buy a win or a goal - the biggest for me has been the return of Carl McCluskey. The threat he provides us from set-pieces, the number of goals he's contributed in half a season from midfield has been essential. I also think that Maz could really flourish next season - his performances since returning from injury have been really bright and encouraging. If he can find a consistent final ball, he will be a real asset next term.

Well done to all last night, and for staving off the drop in what has been one of the most testing seasons on the pitch in my 20-odd years of watching the club.
