Rochdale boss John Coleman was relieved to have picked up a rare home win after his side came from a goal down to beat Bristol Rovers.
Dale's push for promotion has been built on their impressive away form - but displays at Spotland had been disappointing before this win - earned thanks to goals from Andrew Tutte and Bobby Grant either side of the break.
"People can say the fans don't inspire the players, but I don't subscribe to that," he said. "I think it's up to the players to inspire the fans, and if they see hard work and effort, no matter what the score, they will respond, and they did. They applauded the players off at half time even though it was only 1-1 at that stage.
"We had as many shots on goal in this game as we'd had in our previous three home games, and that shows you just how poor we've been in the home games. That says a lot about how bad we've been.
"Their goalkeeper made a few good saves before we equalised, and we left ourselves a little bit loose at the back at times, something we'll look to address. But when Josh was called upon he was excellent and there were some great performances and some great attacking play."
