Baillie – “We rode our luck in the first half but dominated the second”


“”it was tremendous for us to come from behind again and it shows the spirit in the side”  was Thomas Baillie’s reaction as Town followed up their weekend win at Coalville with another performance brimming with character and commitment .

“For the first half hour we weren’t in the game and rode our luck at times, but we got out of jail with the penalty.  We probably didn’t  deserve to go in level at half time  but  once we were in front I felt that we dominated the game.

The longer it went on the stronger we looked while they gradually faded out of it even though they had a couple of chances late on.

Wilson Carvalho in particular sprung to life after half time while Mo Sebbeh also impressed me when he came on.   He will be pressing for a starting place very soon, while  Kynan Isaac and Jamie McAteer who were both left out tonight will be pushing to be included in  the Kings Lynn game this weekend.

We have also been able to extend Laurence Bilboe’s loan until the end of the season.

These three recent wins have put us right back into the play off mix.  Had we continued in the form we were in during February we would have already been out of contention, but hopefully that is behind us now and we  look forward to  finishing  the season  strongly in our remaining games  and seeing where we end up.”
