MCCOURT: WE DESERVED THE WIN

Town’s hero on-the-day, Jak McCourt felt that Swindon deserved their 2-1 victory against Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield.

On a bobbly surface, McCourt arrived late into the box to snatch victory deep into added time after Marc Richards had headed in on 30 minutes to cancel out Tyrone Marsh’s opener for the hosts.

The 23-year-old had demons to put to bed after the reverse leg at the County Ground.

“I remember missing a sitter from a similar position at home at the start of the season.

“I made a late run into the box, (Ben) House did well to nod the ball back to me – I think we deserved the win after the way we played.”

The midfielder felt their three points were deserved as they dealt with the conditions better in the second half.

“The pitch wasn’t the best, and I think we tried to play football a bit too much in the first half.

“Second half we played the conditions well, and that’s what made us deserve the win.”

McCourt was the provider for Town’s equaliser in the first half, knowing he could rely on Marc Richards who returned to the starting line-up for the first time after his quad injury.

“Marc (Richards) knows that I’ll always put the ball on a plate for him.

“Everyone knows Marc is a goalscorer, and he will get you goals. It was a great header from him.”
