Finney : "I'm Claiming The Goal"

27 January 2020

Attacking midfielder, Oli Finney, says it was definitely his goal that put Crewe ahead at Scunthorpe on Saturday. The bizarre goal saw Finney apply a touch to a low cross going into the box from Harry Pickering before passing through a group of legs.

There is an argument that striker Chuma Anene may have applied the decisive touch before it trickled into the far corner, but Finney is adamant that it should go down as his fifth goal of the season.

Finney told crewealex.net:  “It is definitely my goal. When it went across the goal I thought that Chuma had touched it but when I asked him afterwards he said he wasn’t sure.

“I’ve watched it back on the video and he definitely didn’t touch it. I will take any goal. In a couple of months no –one will remember how it’s gone in but it’s another goal. I don’t care how they go in and as long as they do.

“Scunthorpe started really well and deserved credit. We struggled to get on the ball until we changed formation. Even though they were on top, I couldn’t see them scoring.

Oli added: “Once we made the change we got more into the game and could have gone on and win the game. We always think we can get into games when we fall behind. We are young, fit lads and can keep going for 90 plus minutes.”
