Mark Cooper revealed that he was almost moved to tears by the emotion of last night's dramatic 4-3 win at Stockport.

Two days after chairman Raj Singh pledged his support following an awful run of form that had led to some calling for a change of manager, Quakers edged a thrilling game at Edgeley Park.

A spectacular Greg Taylor goal five minutes from time grabbed victory from a game that marked a huge improvement on the weekend defeat at Bath.

Cooper said: "I said to the players after the game that I felt like crying. It's been terrible and difficult to put your finger on what's been going wrong.

"I told them that if they can give me that same effort and commitment in every game then we'll win matches. But if, after this, we go back to how we were at Bath on Saturday we'd go back to square one.

"I can't understand how we can go from Saturday's performance to that tonight. I said to the players, please somebody tell me why it happens. I really felt like crying with the frustration."

Exodus Geoghaghon, who player under Cooper at Kettering and Peterborough, made an impressive debut after signing yesterday. Cooper added: "It was his first game for a month, but he's no mug as he proved tonight. He won headers and got us out of a few scrapes late on. He's a very good centre-half, make no mistake about that."
