Holdsworth is delighted with the welcome he received from the stands at the Burton game. He is hoping that the show of support will remain during the clubs bid to move out of the Blue Square Premier relegation zone. "I would like to thank the fans for their very warm welcome, it was very well received," he said. "All I want them to understand is that things don't happen overnight and patience is a virtue. "What the fans will get is 150 per cent commitment from me. We have to make ourselves hard to beat first and foremost. We are not here to be attractive. "I just urge the fans to give their full support and we will give everything we can to make it happier times again." "The club has had enough managers in recent years to fill a whole team. "I remember when I was at Watford the club struggled when Graham Taylor left. We had various managers and it doesn't breed success. "I'm a young manager and I hope I can build something here and continue my learning curve. "It won't be overnight, but I will lay the foundations and I think that is imperative.
