Paul Mullin was over the moon to have played his part in securing all three points upon his return to Morecambe earlier today.
The striker was back at the Globe Arena for the first time since leaving to join Town in the summer for an undisclosed fee, and he impressed as the Reds maintained their unbeaten start to life in the Sky Bet League Two.
With his family and friends in attendance, it was a perfect day for Mullin who felt Town were worthy winners.
“Before the game the Gaffer told the boys to try and win the game for me because you always want to do well when you go back to your ex-club,” he said.
“I was grateful to Morecambe for giving me my start in football but I’ve moved on and it is all about winning games.
“I was made up to get the three points and we just want to get as many points as we can.
“It was a great game and I thought the first twenty-minutes we were unbelievable, we moved the ball very well, created lots of chances and they couldn’t seem to get the ball off us.
“As soon as we went in-front we just needed to see the game out and we just got the ball and tried to put it into areas, get the ball up the pitch and see the game out.
“The conditions didn’t help us too much in the first-half but we did well.
“I just wanted to get the win so bad today and having all my family and friends here today, getting the win and having a good game was great.”
Mullin was played out wide today and he’s happy to play anywhere as long as he does a job for the team.
“Before the game the Gaffer told the boys to try and win the game for me because you always want to do well when you go back to your ex-club."
“I’m a centre-forward and I’ve come to score goals, but I don’t mind playing anywhere as long as it helps the team,” he added.
“As you’ve seen in the games I’ve played out wide I’ve been able to do a job for the team and do well.
“That’s all I want to do. I want to win every game and if the gaffer thinks we can win with me playing out wide then great, if it is up-front then that’s great as well.
“I’m happy as long as we win the game.”
