Goal Scorer On Doncaster Success
Mark Cullen says his crucial match winner against Doncaster Rovers was a reward for patience on Easter Monday.
The Seasiders spurned a number of good first-half chances, with Cullen having his fair share saved by home stopper Remi Matthews.
However, he finally struck gold three minutes from time when his powerful strike deflected home to earn Pool three vital points.
“We missed a few, not just me but others as well in the first-half, but we carried on in the second-half under a bit of pressure, stuck at it and got a goal,” he explained.
“I’ve said it the whole time, I’m not bothered how they go in as long as they end up in the net. Luckily it took a little nick, put the goalkeeper off and nestled in.
“It was much needed. We’ve had a couple of good results so to be able to build on that here with a decent away performance and three points, it doesn’t get much better.”
The victory kept Pool’s survival chances well and truly alive and Cullen hopes this is the start of another positive run of form.
“We had a good chat amongst ourselves after the Oldham game, we ironed out some problems and to be fair it’s paid off.
“The Gaffer has been saying that the season’s been up and down, and we needed to dig in when we went through a previous bad spell. It’s changed for now and we need to work hard to maintain it.
“It’s an important three points for everyone in that dressing room and hopefully we can build on it,” he added.
