FOOTBALL: LIAM McDonald admits he could not hold back from celebrating following Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Bromley in the National League.
Striker Harry White got the only goal of the game with a ninth minute strike to earn Moors a fifth victory on the road this season.
Another win sees McDonald’s side sit ten points away from the relegation zone with 13 games remaning.
“Few words were needed from me during the after match pitch warm down but even I could not resist a small celebration with the lads,” said McDonald.
“This was always going to be a hard match and the need to get in front and take our chances was paramount.
“The squad is young and we are all still learning but we are going in the right direction. Harry White works so hard up front but now he is surrounded by four very fast midfielders in the shape of Dapo, Regan, George and Shep. Tactically they are very fluent but structured.
“The travelling fans did us proud – they knew there was 100 per cent commitment by the squad and it showed. Both the players and the supporters are on this journey together and it is a good feeling.”
It proved to be a debut to forget for Danny Udon who was sent off just eight minutes after coming on as a late second half substitute for two yellow card offences, the second of which was given as a dive.
“I do not think for one moment that Daniel Udon dived to get a penalty,” McDonald added. “He was round the keeper when the incident happened and was likely to be clattered himself.
“These things happen in football. I was particularly sad for our newest loanee as I thought the first yellow card was unpleasant with the Bromley player seeming to blast the ball straight at him – not where you would expect to place a free kick.”
