He said: “It was a good afternoon for us, it can be tough going down to Wales after being sat on the bus for so long we applied ourselves well. 

“Our start set the tone for the game, we wanted to play with intent and continued to score points throughout the game.

“The journey is tough and a big hurdle to overcome, we just had to get on with it and mentally prepare ourselves the best way we can.”

As the season heads towards it’s latter stages, Bower says the Dons are confident of fighting at the top end of the table.

He added” “We need to be relentless with how tight it is at the top, we know we’re good enough to beat anyone in this league.
