Fell To Me Nicely

10 November 2013

Substitute Ronan Murray scored his first goal for the club in Saturday's FA Cup tie, but he was left disappointed that it wasn't enough...

The striker came off the bench and set-up a grandstand finish with a superb finish in the 84th minute. It was his just his third appearance for the club after his move from Ipswich Town in the summer.

The former Irish Under 21 international, who has impressed in the Development Squad this season, told Magpie Player: "It was enjoyable to come off the bench, it was a bit helter-skelter in the final stages, it was tough playing just behind Yoann (Arquin) and Enoch (Showunmi) and we were unfortunate not to get the result that we wanted.

"I'm happy personally, but obviously as a team we wanted more than that, we wanted to beat league two opposition. But we will go again on Tuesday."

The 22-year-old praised new boss Shaun Derry's tactics. He added: "The Gaffer wanted me in behind and his tactics was spot on. Luckily the ball dropped to me from the two big lads infront and I scored, but fortunately I couldn't do it again in the final seconds. 

"It fell to me nicely and I hit it, luckily it flew into the top corner. They all count."
