Boss: 'Celebrations For Everyone After A Hard Earned Point'

27 September 2021

Boss pleased that game plan resulted in late reward at New York Stadium.

David Artell says that the celebrations that occurred when Chris Porter kept his nerve once again to slot home that equalising penalty at Rotherham United showed how united the players and supporters are.

Porter and his team-mates made sure they went over to celebrate grabbing that point in front of the 400 travelling Alex fans behind that particular goal.

Artell said that the late equaliser felt like a win for us: “It felt like a win for us and a loss for them. Paul (Warne) said the same afterwards to me and I had to agree with him.

“The celebrations showed what it meant to the players and the supporters. It was a well-earned point against a club who know how to get out of this division.

“They had the lions share of possession and Paul told me that they had 36 crosses going in. I didn’t count them when I watched it back, but I do know that they had three chances and we gave them their goal.

“We showed great resilience to remain in the game for long periods and in the last 20 minutes, we started passing the ball and looked something like. We looked okay and the game plan had them playing slightly differently, so I was pleased for everyone that we got some reward for that.

“It was a good point and we have to move on and start planning for Plymouth.”
