"Fantastic way to win the game"

18 April 2014

MARK Cooper spoke to the media after Town's dramatic late win at Coventry.

On the late winner...
It was a fantastic way to win the game. On the balance of play, it's what we deserved.

On the performance...
In the first half we bossed possession against a good football team. I thought we should have been in the lead at half time with their only shot of the half they scored a soft goal. That was a frustration. At half time I asked for more of the same. They turned it in to a scrap in the second half but we didn't take enough care with the final pass. Then in one moment, Michael Smith runs 90 yards to win the ball in the corner then goes up the other end and heads in the winner.

On Michael Smith...
It's fantastic for him to score in front of that many people. You could see his delight and the fans' delight. 

On post-match celebrations...
I just got a bit excited. That's what football is about; highs, lows. The last month we've had a few highs. The fans were brilliant today. They got behind us and it was like a home game.
