Gnahoua delighted with Crewe brace

22 September 2021

Striker Arthur Gnahoua scored his first two goals of the season to propel the Shrimps to victory at the Mornflake Stadium on Tuesday night.

Adam Phillips opened the scoring in the eighth minute before 29-year-old Gnahoua added a second 20 minutes later.

Despite the hosts pulling a goal back four minutes into the second half, the former Bolton Wanderers man put the game to bed on 85 minutes with a fierce strike into the roof of the net, and he says he’s pleased to get off the mark for the season.

“It’s always good to score,” he said.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game, coming away against a good side, but we’re happy to win the game.

“The manager has told us to run in the box every time the ball is out wide, so I managed to get in the box and get a goal, so it was good.

“Towards the end, we were under a little bit of pressure, it was 2-1 but it was good to get another goal to kill the game.”

Tuesday’s victory sees the Shrimps claim their third league victory of the season, their first away from the Mazuma Stadium, and Gnahoua believes it’ll give the side confidence ahead of our next two home games, starting with Lancashire rivals Accrington Stanley on Saturday.  

He added: “It’s going to give us more confidence for the next game, and we’re just looking forward to the next home game.

“It’s one game at a time, we just look forward to Saturday’s game, hopefully we can get some points from that game, we’re looking forward to it.

“It’s always good to play and get match fitness, so I just hope to keep working hard and get my place in the team.”
