Cox happy with three points

27 February 2013

Manager Paul Cox was delighted with the way our side played in the second half of last night’s dramatic victory over Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

After a first period in which “we were a million miles off the pace” according to our boss, Matt Green netted in stoppage-time, to move us into the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off zone.

It rounded off a perfect week for our boys, who also defeated Hyde last week and play-off rivals Luton Town in equally dramatic fashion on Saturday.

“I don’t think we played particularly well and credit has to be given to Lincoln, because I thought they battled all the way through the 90 minutes,” said Cox.

“I thought it had 0-0 written all over it and I wouldn’t say the three points were undeserved, but we were quite lucky in the first half as Lincoln were excellent and put us on the back foot.

“We were a million miles off the standard we’ve set ourselves of late, but credit to the boys. There were a few rows in the dressing room at half-time, a few harsh words.”

He added: “They were upset with their own performance and in the second half it was one-way traffic. We had some good chances and you can never write-off Matt Green, who tapped one in at the end.”
