Elliott On Last Minute Winner

Elliott Durrell believes the manner of Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over Fylde shows the kind of quality that the dressing room has this season.

The winger had earlier created the opening goal of the game for Wilson – before Fylde equalised shortly after the half time break.

But, with the game poised at 1-1 going into injury time, a last-gasp winner, and a second, from Wilson proved to be the difference on the night. Durrell told Silkmen TV afterwards that the decisive moment shows the fighting spirit in the team.

“We’ve shown good character,” he said, “to score in the 90th minute is the sign of a good team. To keep going until the end is fantastic and it really is fantastic for Willo (Scott Wilson).

“Obviously, we’re delighted. To win four out of five shows we’re on a great run and we have to make sure we keep it up.

“It was tough out there with the weather. But we’re expected to win our home games. It doesn’t matter who comes here, we want to win every game at home. But, as you know, they don’t come much sweeter than that in the last minute.”

The summer signing from Chester went on to say that there is a lot of confidence, within the group, ahead of the game against Maidstone on Saturday.

“We’re all full of confidence having won four out of five. So, we have to carry on and make sure we’re trying the right things.

“The team is getting to know each other game by game. My only criticism at the moment is that we need to be more ruthless.

“But, If we keep doing what we’re doing, there will be a game where there will be some goals going in for us.”
