Totally agree; in an otherwise fairly even match it was the extra quality of our Jay and Sam that made the difference.What I liked particularly about our 2 goals (other than Josh Key’s brilliant build up play) was how both Stanno and Sam took them.
When Stanno laid the ball off to Sam he sprinted into the box but then hung back behind the defender until the very last moment before nipping in front of him to score.
Also watching Sam during the play leading up to his goal he was strong in the initial tussle with the defender, sensed the ball was coming in on the near post and showed great movement and a deft touch at the end.
Coming back from being behind was good too.
We haven’t done that much this season so far so should hopefully be a confidence boost going forward.
