'Goal machine' Seamus

12 April 2015

Seamus Conneely is not sure about the ‘goal machine' tag given to him by his manager John Coleman.

The midfielder has scored in the last two games, breaking his league duck against Carlisle to score the third in a 3-1 win on Monday and then he followed it up with a last ditch leveller at Cambridge in a 2-2 draw yesterday.

His first, against the Cumbrians, went through the keeper's legs and his second yesterday was a real goalmouth scramble in the 91st minute where he again pounced on a loose ball.

“I don't know about being a goal machine but I can't remember the last time I got two goals in two games so I will take it. I am delighted with it,” said Conneely, who signed for the Reds in January after playing in the Irish League and knowing Coleman from his days at Sligo.

“I wasn't sure it had gone in yesterday, it hit the crossbar twice and it was a bit of a scramble, a bit of madness to be honest.

“Joycey has put a great ball into Nicky (Hunt) who has got in behind them, I think Nicky has hit two shots, Kal (Naismith) then hit a shot and it's hit the defender and then it has come to me.

“I was delighted as I thought we deserved at least a point out of the game.

“I thought we were the better team in the first half and we started the second half well and then it got a bit bitty, there were a few stoppages.

“Credit to Cambridge, they pushed on for the last 20 minutes and we dropped a bit deep and then I thought we had lost it going into stoppage time 2-1 down.

“But we took our last chance.  The gaffer has said they are poacher's goals - I think it's a combined three yards for both of them!”
