Goal scorer Scott Wilson believes the 1-0 win over Solihull Moors on Saturday was a great way to respond to the Woking setback last weekend.
The forward, who returned to the starting line-up for the first time since the game against Gateshead last month, netted the only goal of the game at Damson Park. His second since joining the club from National League rivals Eastleigh in the summer.
After the game, Wilson took some time out to speak to mtfc.co.uk and admitted that, although he was frustrated about starting the previous games as a substitute, he was delighted to contribute in the win for his side.
“It was great for me to get on the score sheet,” he said, “especially with me being out of the starting line-up for a while.
“Obviously since my last start at Gateshead, the team has played really well and opportunities have been limited. Now, though, I’m glad to have got back in and contributed in a victory for the team.
“It’s an excellent feeling to contribute. Of course, it’s always frustrating when you’re not playing, but, all you can do is train hard and try and make the right impressions to get back into the team and I’ve had my chance today.”
Wilson’s 62nd-minute goal came just a few minutes after goalkeeper Shwan Jalal produced a fine save to deny Solihull captain Darren Carter from the penalty spot. A period of play that shows the level of character in the dressing room according to the goal scorer.
“It shows great character to capitalise on them moments in games.
“Obviously, I had a role to play in the penalty because I made a mistake on the halfway line. Thankfully Shwan was on hand to redeem that and we bounced back to take all three points.
“I’m just glad I got the opportunity to make the most of it and, in the end, win the lads the game.
