Ronan Murray reflected on the match-winning penalty that he won for his side against Scunthorpe United...
Ronan Murray admitted that he was initially worried that match referee Nigel Miller wasn’t going to give what he thought was a definite penalty in the Sky Bet League 1 victory at Scunthorpe United on Saturday.
The Irish striker told Magpie Player after the game: “I thought he could give a dive here, but luckily he pointed to the spot and I’m delighted that we could nick it in the end.
“I’d never dive, he did take me out, I would say that I did go down but he never got the ball and it was always going to be a penalty.”
Having come off the bench to win the penalty that ultimately sealed victory for Notts, Murray stressed that every player in the squad needs to be ready to perform when called upon this season.
“It’s a squad game,” he added. “If you look at the likes of the Man Uniteds, Arsenals, at the top of the Premier League, they need their squad all the season to be on their toes, on the bench, and they win games away at the likes of Scunthorpe and places like this are tough places to go and you need all the squad on their toes and luckily we provided it today.”
