Cooper: Fantastic scenes

29 March 2014

TOWN Manager Mark Cooper spoke to the media after the win over Sheffield United.

On the winning goal...
It was fantastic to see the scenes of a boy that's come through the Academy, a local boy to get the winning goal. To then see his brother, who is off the pitch, sprint round the pitch to celebrate with him - fantastic scenes at the end.

On the performance...
In the second half we were under the kosh. We didn't secure the ball up front and it kept coming back. When you drop that, it's difficult to get back. We didn't have enough possession in the second half and the 'keeper had to get us out of jail with a world class save at the end which led to the winning goal. The way they dug it out was pleasing. In the first half, they were excellent. They played one up front and tried to press our three defenders. We were able to draw them out and play round them. We then scored a fantastic goal and dominated the first half and deserved to be in front. In the second half it was totally different.

On Wes Foderingham's contribution...
He's made two brilliant saves (in the first half) they were straight at him but the one at the end was purely reflex - a fantastic save. He's been awesome since he has come back. While he was out, he watched Ty and how he distributed the ball and that (side of his game) has been fantastic since he come back. He's coming for a lot of crosses as well. 

On team unity...
You saw the celebrations at the end - they showed they are together. They've taken a bit of unjustified criticism at times because of how young they are. They've done well. We're finishing the season as we want to. I wanted a strong finish to the season. It's a tough game and a long trip to Carlisle next week.
