Manager Mark Yates has said he thought we were very worthy winners in our two one victory over Accrington Stanley last weekend.

Harrison opened the scoring before they drew level, leaving Arthur to secure us the victory late on – although we did have to ride our luck with a penalty award that they missed late into injury time in the game.

Speaking to the Official Site after the full time whistle, the gaffer explained.

‘I thought it was a decent game. I thought we were the better team and we deserved our win but we were a little fortunate that they missed a penalty in the 93rd minute. At the moment it’s about points and trying to find a way of playing that suits everybody and I thought for 75% of the game we were on top and we played some really decent football and created decent chances.’

Yates goes on to say that after Harrison had opened the scoring he was deeply frustrated that we couldn’t double our advantage as Taylor hit the ball and Arthur drew a ‘worldy’ save from their keeper and whilst he trusts his backline, when chances like that go against you it always leaves you edgy and wondering if it could be one of those days.

As for their goal he admits he ‘can’t see what happened’ because for him from nowhere their player has just walked in free, took charge of the ball and scored and it seemed nobody had much of a clue what was happening at the point.

Admitting that despite it being unlucky, he had to agree it was a penalty and a good decision from the referee but he was delighted to see fortune favour us and he’s hoping we can take that into Tuesday’s match now and really build some momentum.

‘I would’ve been massively disappointed not to take all three points, you get a bit of luck sometimes and we’ve deserved it. I thought we deserved everything we got last week at Bury. We put in a disciplined, hard working display against Brighton and then today I thought we took it to the next stage, we were better with the ball and created lots of chances.’

More of the same hopefully, a good run and get some real confidence going.
