We’ll wait and see, checking on their complete health later on.

At 4-5, 2-4 in league, they will move on against better opponents in the weeks ahead, hoping the recovery lasts and the good feeling lingers.

"We needed it," Whittingham said. "Our backs are to the wall, and that’s the way it will be the rest of the way."
