Tony McMahon was pleased to end a 'disappointing week' with a vital win over Swindon Town at Bramall Lane on Saturday.
After seeing Danny Wilson and assistant manager Frank Barlow leave the club after the defeat to Crawley Town, McMahon insisted the players owed the supporters a positive reaction and with Chris Morgan in charge the lads didn't disappoint against Kevin MacDonald's shell-shocked Robins.
The right-back, who claimed assists for both goals on his return from suspension, commented:
"The lads were massively disappointed with what happened to the Gaffer and Frank (Barlow), as players we have to take responsibility because we haven't been good enough.
"We remain in a good position, but we probably let the manager down, especially at home.
"That is in the past now though, the win over Swindon was crucial and just what we needed.
"The lads produced a positive performance and the fans were behind us from the first minute to the last and kicking towards the Kop end they sucked the second goal in.
"It was a disappointing week, but thankfully we ended it on a high."
