Coulson said: “It was good to get the win on Saturday in Darren’s (Kelly) first game in charge.

“We owed a strong performance to the fans and I felt like we gave them something to celebrate.

“Managerial sackings happen in football but I do feel like we needed a change at the club, I’m hopeful things will start to pick up and it’s clear that Darren will give 100% in everything that he does.”

Kelly announced that Coulson will continue as skipper and the striker added: “I really enjoy captaining the lads and always try to lead by example.

“His decision gives me the opportunity to continue to positively influence the lads again.”

“As a team we have to take it week by week and consolidate where we are.

“I’ve been here before with York City, we were second bottom but went on a run which saw us reach the play-offs.

“It’s always better to finish the season stronger rather than starting strong and falling away.”
