Joe Anyinsah has credited Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee for injecting some much-needed life into the club.
McGhee took over at the Memorial Stadium last month following the dismissal of former boss Paul Buckle, who left with Rovers winless in eight League Two matches.
Under the leadership of caretaker manager Shaun North and then McGhee, however, the Pirates have emerged victorious from five of their last eight games. And Anyinsah claimed McGhee's arrival has played a major part in their recent resurgence.
"It's been good. He's come in and he's just shaken up the place with the way he works. He's very thorough in his methods and he's got the players playing as he wants us to," he said.
"There's no major differences to how the old manager worked, just sometimes a new face helps.
"Players want to go out and impress because they want to stay in the team and that seems to have happened."
