Ben Marshall equalised and then turned provided for Jason Price's 73rd-minute winner, his goal at the near post leading Abbot to single out the on loan Millwall striker for his contribution to the hard-fought win.
"Cometh the hour cometh the man and our men produced," said Abbott. "The result was magnificent against a side who are tough to compete with. The goal we conceded was a poor one but we played some great football against the odds."
He added: "Jason's all-round game was excellent. He gave an honest performance and caused problems for them. He looked sharp. On another day he could have had a hat-trick and you would take that kind of performance from him every week."
