UPDATED: We owed that performance to the fans and the manager says Jason Scotland.

That was for the Super Blues.

That is the message tonight from goal hero Jason Scotland following Town’s incredible 5-3 win at Barnsley.

The Blues showed amazing powers of recovery – and proved they were fighting to save Paul Jewell’s job – after recovering from a 2-0 half-time deficit to score five times after the interval.

And Scotland, who capped a fine performance with the fifth, said: “We owe that to the fans, players and manager. We played better last week (against Watford) but we didn’t get the result but it was coming and today we performed well second half and got a result.”

When asked whether Jewell raged at half-time following a dire first half performance, Scotland revealed: “He just said that against Burnley (last week) we chucked it in at half-time and didn’t do ourselves justice. This time we had to come out and give ourselves a performance and we did that.”
