Winger speaks to the press after priceless midweek victory over Tranmere Rovers.
Winger Reggie Lambe was delighted to grab the goal which secured a priceless 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers, although the winger admits that he wasn’t following boss Adam Murray’s orders.
Lambe struck on the stroke of the interval following some good work by Vadaine Oliver, to secure a win which all but secures our safety in the Football League for another season.
“It was brilliant, right before half-time. I was just very happy to see it go in,” said Lambe, who was speaking in his post-match interview.
“The type of game it was, the passion I felt when I scored I couldn’t hold back. The gaffer wanted me to stay in shape, but I noticed that the ball was going to go up to Vadaine and it just fell to me and I just did the rest.”
Despite his goalscoring heroics, Lambe was annoyed to have been sent off deep into injury time: “It was good to score, but in the end to get a red card, it was a bit disappointing.
“I’ve gone in to try and keep the peace, but the referee has pulled me out. I don’t know if he thought I was trying to stir everything up, but he gave me a second yellow and I was sent-off.”
Despite his Man of the Match performance, the Bermudan insisted the whole team and the fans deserved credit for the performance and highlighted the gap they now have over the bottom two.
He added: “They (Tranmere) needed a win and we defended brilliantly, so credit to the boys for working hard, keeping a clean-sheet and doing what we needed to do.
“I don’t think anyone really felt nervous. I just think we knew the occasion and we knew they had to come out the blocks and come at us, so first and foremost we wanted to keep a clean-sheet.
“It’s brilliant to have that little cushion although we still have to do a job and we still have to be professional and make sure we stay in this league. We look forward to Cambridge.
"Unfortunately I may not be able to play, but I’ll be making sure the lads are keeping up the standards.”
