"I always gauge things by the crowd and I can really sense the supporters want us to do well,” the former Norwich City boss said.
"The lads are only young and they will make mistakes like everyone else but the crowd are right behind us.

"We can only do our best. The lads have been absolutely brilliant for me. I have nothing but pride in them."
