Following bad results against Wycombe and Mansfield, a win was much needed and the result has certainly lifted spirits in the Notts camp as well as the boost of picking up their first clean sheet since the December 14th 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers.
"The lads are in the right frame of mind for the Oldham game and have a bit more confidence about them." Said Dearden.
"After a poor first half, it was a good win against Bristol City and we are now looking forward to the Oldham game."
With tough games against The Latics and then Luton coming up, it is vital the squad continue to be confident, especially with some VITAL relegation 6 pointers just around the corner.
