Manager Teddy Sheringham couldn’t have been more delighted with the victory over Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game press conference a clearly happy gaffer was proud of the efforts of the players and given results already this season, he felt it was about time we were due some luck following goalkeeper Jesse Joronen’s early opening goal.

Armand Gnanduillet went on to add a second tying the game up, leaving their late strike as nothing but a consolation on the day.

The gaffer explained.

‘There is different ways to win a football match, today we had to really dig in, grind and make sure we held firm. I was delighted with the way we did. We got ourselves in front by a little bit of luck and then further in front with a very well worked goal but still we had to hang on into the last couple of minutes and defend for our lives.’

With Sheringham’s years in the game as a player both at domestic level and internationally, he was asked directly if he could recall seeing a goalkeeper score in person, as whilst it does happen, it’s few and far between.

‘There has been a few over the years. I didn`t think it was windy or skiddy enough to do it today but it just catches people out sometimes and we are delighted for a little bit of luck like that.’

Having praised Gnanduillet previously, the gaffer was at it again saying that if our deliveries are right, especially from set pieces, then our on loan striker will be dangerous because he’s good in the air and it’s one of his strengths.

‘We have got boys that can put the balls in decent areas, both the right and left – it is all about getting on the end of them. I said at half-time, that is where it will probably be won or lost and for him to put us two up was very pleasing and then we had to hold firm at the end. We definitely defended very, very well. I was very proud of all the back four, the goalkeeper stood firm and we had to battle it out. I can`t pick any names out.’
