Boss heaps praise on his players after memorable comeback to mark his first game in charge.
Interim manager Alex Morris dedicated the 3-1 home win over AFC Wimbledon to everyone associated with the club and thanked the club’s supporters who came out to support the team just days after our relegation to League Two was confirmed.
Alex said after the club’s first win in nine matches: “I went through plenty of emotions during the game as it was a real rollercoaster. I said to the players that you will never get a pat on the back for running around and having that desire, showing intensity, and pride that’s a given - but what they get heaps of praise for is the fact that they responded to so many different situations in the game, so impressively.
“Going one nil down. Not going two nil down which had been a common occurrence this season, so we were able to get in at half time without the game not getting away from us. We were still well in the game.
“We lacked a few ideas in the final third but we were getting up there relatively easily , so there was no panic in the changing room. It was a case of sticking to the plan but doing it better. They responded in the second half really quickly by getting two goals in quick succession. The whole complexion of the game changed.
“They then saw the game out and added to the lead in the final minute. I thought 3-1 was probably in reflection was about right in the end. There were all sorts of things to be pleased about from the game that we haven’t shown too often this season.
He added: “That is for everyone. All the staff, who work behind the scenes and work at the stadium but mostly for the supporters. We are all in it as a team. The supporters have been so, so patient and resilient and stuck with us. It wouldn’t have happened at any other club. It was the incredible the type of support we have received today, a week after being relegated.
“They want to see a real fight and desire from the players and they got that today and I am pleased for everyone.”
