Manager Peter Taylor and goal scorer Michael Harriman reflect on fantastic win over Swindon at Priestfield

Peter Taylor said his players deserved huge credit following the impressive 2-0 win over Swindon at MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Saturday.

Goals from Leon Legge and Michael Harriman either side of half time were enough to seal all three points, and Peter was delighted with the response his team gave following defeat last weekend.

Speaking after the game he said: “Very good response because we didn’t look a good enough team last week against Colchester, but today we were a team in every way.

“The players deserve so much credit because they worked so hard for each other and if somebody was in trouble they had a team-mate willing to put themselves out to get them out of it.

“It’s a great performance and a very important win. Swindon are a very good team so it’s a great result.

“We got a good goal from Leon Legge, a set piece so that was nice.

“People like Michael Harriman, who started off as a midfield player, he’s been playing right back for us I know but his energy was all over the place and it was infectious.

“I do have a little bit of a go at him for never scoring a goal so today I am delighted for him. He said it was a really good shin that got the goal but we are over the moon with him.

“He’s a real great professional.”

Michael, who was celebrating his first ever professional goal, said it was a moment he will never forget.

He said: “It was a great moment for me; I will remember it for a long time. My first professional goal so I’m a happy bunny right now.

“The boys have been saying it was a shin but it was a clean strike thankfully and they all count at the end of the day.

“I’ve got a lot of energy to get up and down and that helped me in a way. I really enjoyed it, it was a great game and I’m delighted to score aswell.

“We are honest and hardworking lads and we went out there today and did really well; pressed high up and we had lots of chances and could have scored a few more goals.”
