McGoldrick said: “It was a game of two halves, in the first half we were in control and scored two good goals while they did not really have any chances. In the second half, we didn’t do the right things at times, and they’re a good team with good players, with a striker who has played at a high level.

“We got the win, which was the most important thing because no games are easy and no points are given to you, so we’re happy to get those three points. You’ve got to dig in sometimes and we did that a lot today.

“We made some mistakes in the game and the gaffer won’t let us get away with that, he’ll want us to address them so that we can cut it out of our game and go again next week.

“We’re really fluid with our play and we work on these things all week in being able to play different positions within the gaffer’s system. Sam [Austin] can play anywhere on the pitch and Jodi [Jones] is quality and can go in and out with the ball as a winger.

“They switched, Dan [Crowley] and I switched throughout the game so it is all really fluid but we’re just listening to what the gaffer says and following what he wants us to do.”

“I don’t look at the table at this stage as a player and you can’t make any conclusions about us yet because we are nine games in because it is the second half of the season where you really get a feeling of where you’re going to be fighting.

“We’ve just got to keep working hard and stay humble on and off the pitch, we can’t be getting ahead of ourselves and I’ll be letting people know if I see any of that start to creep in but the boys have been very good so far.”
