Nottingham Forest boss Colin Calderwood hailed his side's 2-1 victory at Northampton Town as a huge result.
Goals from Brett Ormerod and Nathan Tyson gave Forest the points at Sixfields, despite James Perch having been sent off just 20 minutes into the game.
Calderwood told the Evening Post: "It feels like a big win and it was. It is a huge result for us, particularly in the manner it came.
"It was an all-round team performance. Not just in injury time, but throughout the game. I lost count of the number of times we got blocks in or headed the ball away.
"We were really tested by a team that has been excellent recently. This is a huge result.
"We are a young team and we showed a great amount of experience throughout 90 minutes. It was a manly performance."
