John Sheridan commented about his new two-and-a-half year deal at Boundary Park and admitted, “I am very fortunate to have been asked back. Another club had been in touch since I left Notts County. This is a good move for me and the club, though. We know one another and I know this can work again. People keep telling me how hard it is here, but it's not a difficult job if you start winning games. That's what I hope to get the team doing again, and of course I've done that before. Then it's just about keeping that momentum going.”

He got off to a good enough start with only the second home win of the season after a well fought 1-0 victory over Gillingham. Sheridan did it all from the stands though as he was serving the last match of a touch-line ban. The lone goal, scored by Josh Law, was only the fifth home league goal of the season which finally brought a smile to the faces of the long suffering fans.
