Carson praises teammates

6 April 2022

Goalkeeper Trevor Carson has praised his fellow teammates and says everyone left everything they had out on the Mazuma Stadium pitch in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over Oxford United.

The shot-stopper on-loan from Dundee United played a crucial role in the win, and says the three points are even more sweeter because the Shrimps came from a goal down to secure victory. 

“First and foremost it is a massive three points, I think we took the momentum from Saturday into the game and I think the lads left everything they had out on the pitch,” he said. 

“You saw the appreciation from the fans at the end, it [the result] has give us a real good chance of staying in this division, we have five more games, five more performances like that will keep us in this league. 

“It makes it even more sweeter [to come back from a goal down], the crowd got behind us as they always do, and that give us the freedom to work our way back into the game and eventually win it. “

The game will be remembered for a stunning one-handed save on the 90th minute from Carson to all-but seal the three points, and the Northern Irishman says he’ll watch it back with a cuppa when he gets home. 

“As the manager likes to remind me after the game, that is what I am paid to do, it was just instinct, it is great to play a part and I would be lying if I was to say that I’d have nothing to do,” he added. 

“To be able to contribute and get the three points is great, I haven’t been able to watch it [the save] back yet, but by all accounts it was a good save, I will watch it back tonight with a cup of tea. 

“It was nice to make it in-front of our supporters as well, normally were celebrating a goal up that end, so it was great to have that appreciation from them behind me.”
