Shrimpers quotes after victory over Valiants 'Not many teams will win here'
Published : 27 Aug 2011 18:11:53
Players and manager were quick to talk to the Echo after the whistle went and as I'm sure you will understand, were in high spirits, though it looks as if right-back Sean Clohessy is out for Tuesday's JPT tie with Crawley Town. Phillips: Back from injury to become the club's joint top scorer, no really! Echoman Chris Phillips was quick with his tweets after the Shrimpers brilliant 3-2 win at Port Vale Saturday afternoon, and of course two of the scorers, the third Liam Dickinson had limped off injured, were quite willing to talk about hitting the back of the old onion bag! Centre-back Mark Phillips - 'Great to be back out there and very pleased to score. Disappointed in my part in their second goal but this is a great win.' And the man himself: 'What a result and effort from the team...plus I do believe thats 2 in 2 from me loool' Priceless, and after all his time in the treatment room, he deserves it! Then full-back moved into midfield due to the injury to JP Kalala Ryan Leonard, whose first goal as a professional this was after a couple of long-range scorchers in pre-season. Leonard - 'It wasn't my usual type of goal but they all count. It took a deflection but it's definitely my goal. I'm delighted by today.' Last, but not least, Blues boss Paul Sturrock, who after having to face the media in the last week after two successive defeats was happy enough to comment on a welcome return to winning ways. Sturrock - "We were superb and the players worked so hard. We deserved the 3 points and I'm delighted. Not many teams will win here." That's for sure Luggy, who also passed on the news that right-back Sean Clohessy picked up a knock and is doubtful for the JPT First round game with Crawley Town Tuesday evening at Roots Hall. Ryan Leonard is the obvious replacement, but we will have to see how the injury situation is on all fronts before the team is finalised.
