Theo Vassell spoke of his delight at Saturday’s victory, and capping off his home debut with a goal and a clean sheet.
In his first Moss Rose start, our summer signing admitted that there is reason for optimism due to our early season performances; although he is not getting carried away just yet.
“It’s our first win, first clean sheet, so everyone is buzzing but it’s the second game so we can’t get too complacent.
“We have got to maintain levels, recover, and go again on Tuesday.
“Obviously with the first half being difficult, at half-time we were just saying that we need to get out there and get on the front foot.
“We were against the wind then, so we had to use our heads a bit more and the next goal for us was vital.
“When we got it, we killed the game, and then we obviously went and got a third, so it was even better for us.”
On a personal level, Theo was delighted with his performance, but maintained that the result was more important than any personal accolades.
“I couldn’t ask for more to be honest. It’s my first league goal as well so I’m delighted with that, but first and foremost the team won the game and we got a clean sheet.
“Then the goal was a bonus for me.”
Looking ahead to Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash against Blackpool, Theo insists we can use the momentum of this weekend’s result and the performance against Exeter to surprise The Seasiders.
“They are one league above but that doesn’t matter to me. It’s the cup and it’s away so we can go there with no pressure and no fear.
“The pressure will be on them, so I think we can go there with all the confidence from today, and the Exeter game because of the performance and get something from the game.
Theo has been joined by ten other new signings at the Moss since the end of last season; but he says the recent performances are a testament to how quickly everyone has gelled together as we look to push on from last season.
“We have been doing well, in training the vibe has been good. Everyone gets on together and everyone mixes together so there is a great vibe around when we are at training and on a matchday.
“There is no silly arguing, there are no groups or anything like that, so everyone is gelling well, and I think we can really have a good season.”
