Match winner Arthur Gnahoua says this afternoon’s victory against Charlton Athletic was an important one.
Cole Stockton’s 26th of the season in all competitions opened the scoring, before Gnahoua doubled the advantage minutes before the break.
The hosts pulled one back on 53 minutes courtesy of Jayden Stockley before Gnahoua’s second of the game extended Morecambe’s lead, which they held on to despite an 81st minute consolation courtesy of Chuks Aneke.
“It was important to win this game,” Gnahoua said.
“We’ve got to keep on going, look forward to the next games, play like this and hopefully survive.
“It just shows that we have a lot of team chemistry and we’ve just got to keep on working as a team, and hopefully we can do that next game.”
This afternoon’s brace has taken Gnahoua to five goals for the season so far, and is the second time the 30-year-old has scored twice in a game for the Shrimps, and he says it’s important for other players as well as Stockton to chip in with goals.
He added: “It’s important to score goals and help the team, of course we’ve got to defend, but also score goals to keep the lead.
“We’ve got to support Cole to score more goals, we’ve got to score goals as well because we attack, so yeah, it’s important for everyone to score goals.
“It’s an amazing feeling to see the fans happy and that’s what football is all about, just making the fans happy and hopefully [we’ll] win more games.
“This game will give us a lot of confidence, so we’ve got to take it into the next game and hopefully we can win.
“I just think, we know we’re a good team, we’ve got good individuals, we’ve just got to keep working as a team and we can win more games hopefully, so we’re looking forward to it.”
