That stretched their unbeaten league run to 11 games and opened up a three-point gap at the top of League One.

Curtis had the belief he could make the most of an opening with his talent.

He said: ‘It was a vital win and we’re now 11 unbeaten – the confidence is flying.

‘I took the goal well and I knew what I was doing.

‘I used the defender as a decoy and stuck it in the corner, which was the only place I could put it.

‘I’ve got the belief I have quality to do that.’
