PH: We Deserved It

12 January 2013

Town boss Paul Hurst thought that his side deserved the 2-1 victory at in-form Welling today.

He said: “The aim was to come here and get a result but it’s not an easy place to come to.

“It was always going to be a difficult tie but I thought we deserved the victory.

“We all know how well Welling are going and it’s nice to put an end to their run. I think they showed why they are doing well and confidence is up.”

The Town joint boss thought that all three penalties were the right decision.

He said: “I think we could have had a handball decision aswell.

“The first one is a clear handball and Ross has hit the post. Then Shaun’s got the wrong side and he’s brought the lad down. They go one-nil up and then ‘Dev’ (Jamie Devitt) gets caught. Ross was always going to be the penalty taker and after that I am more than happy for whoever wants it. That shows that they are confident and want to stick the ball in the net. Ross was a little bit unlucky - on another day that goes in off the post.

“I always felt like we weren’t going to lose the game. The longer the game went on they just threw balls up there and we were just defending set-plays.

“They didn’t really cut us open.”

And Paul was pleased with the business that the join managers had done in the transfer market.

He said: “I’m delighted with the business that we have done. At this moment in time we will go with what we have got but you never know. We need to be weary of one or two injuries or suspensions.”
