"The fans got behind us and it was a joy to play there," he says of the second home league game of the season.
But he acknowledges that the responsibility lies with the players to get the supporters going, and adds: "It takes two to tango so to speak; they need something to cheer about, and rightly so.
"I thought we gave that in the first half and they got behind us.
"And at the end they cheered us off, which was really pleasing.
"When you are playing on nights like Tuesday, and playing really well, there is no better place to play."
David, used in the last two years, to playing in front of somewhat smaller crowds with Wimbledon, was impressed that over 30,000 were present for the midweek game and adds: "The size of the crowd was fantastic and it was so pleasing to get a win for them."
