Manager Neil Harris was a pleased and relieved man in last night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy victory over Peterborough as it registered our first Den win of the season.

Audio – Relief For Harris

Speaking to the official site following a late Shaun Williams goal becoming our winner as he connected with a Carlos Edwards’ delivery, a delighted manager explained.

‘I thought some of our football was outstanding. Some of our attacking play was really good and we created numerous chances. It’s a big win, one that has been a long time coming for us. Sometimes you just need to get that first one to relax everybody. Next time we come here we will be positive and next time the fans come they can be positive. Their team won tonight and it gives us something to build on at home.’

With the first home win now off our backs, Harris went on to talk about the other positives from the game, and a huge one was Edwards first appearance in just under 12 months following his recovery from his long term injury.

‘First and foremost – welcome back Carlos! He was outstanding tonight. He was a little bit rusty in possession at times but he is calm and has played a lot of games in his career, so he knows where to be at the right time. For him to get through the 90 minutes was an outstanding achievement and it was great to have him back in the dressing room.’

The gaffer moved on to praise Williams for his winning goal.

‘We all know Shaun Williams’ quality. We saw that even in a relegation team last year. He is desperate to do well. I left him out at the weekend and he responded today by putting in an outstanding display. He was calm and assured and he showed his range of passing.’
