Ports Pleased To Back Amongst The Goals

23 April 2019

Chris Porter says that despite scoring a brace at the County Ground he was still left frustrated that he didn’t return to South Cheshire with the matchball. Porter converted two close range finishes after great work by Tommy Lowery in assisting him but he really should have had a treble after having a perfectly good goal chalked off for offside and then being denied a chance from the penalty spot after he was amazingly booked for diving after going down when it easier to score!

Ports told ifollow the Alex: "I spoke to the manager on Friday, because in the last few games I haven't been getting many chances, they've all been going to the wide men.

"I've been patient, but it's also been frustrating. But in this game I got a lot of chances and managed to get a couple of goals.

"It was a good day but it was still slightly frustrating.

"Especially after they had just been given (a penalty) which was cheap, I thought he had to give it to be honest. He barged into me behind so I've gone down, I thought it was a stonewall penalty.

"As well, the 'offside goal' wasn't offside again, so that's two in the last few weeks I've been denied.

"I don't like singling out referees, but he should watch that game back.

"But I'm pleased with 14 goals because I didn't play much for the first half of the season really, it was mainly substitute appearances.

He added: "So the goals-to-starts ratio I'm very pleased with, I think it's just under one in two. Hopefully I can get more before the end of the season."
