Mingoia out to add more goals

19 March 2015

Piero Mingoia doesn't think his latest spectacular goal is the best of his career but is more than happy to add another to his collection.

The 23-year-old bulleted home Stanley's second in Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Wycombe from the edge of the box to put John Coleman's team in front.

It follows several strikes from range that have found the target, including a stunning volley at Rochdale last season.

“It's not better than the Rochdale one,” said Mingoia, who now has six goals for the season. “That was on my weaker foot!

“I'd take some tap ins now! It was a great goal but you'll take them any way they hit the back of the net.

“It was good. Credit has to go to Seani (Maguire) who had the awareness to lay it back to me on the edge of the box and then I hit it nicely and luckily it went into the roof of the net.

“I think Terry's goal just before half time was massive because we'd had a few balls into the box and half chances here and there and I think it was really important that we got level. It gave us a bit of belief and then to get the next one after half time was great. After that I think we dropped off a bit too much and invited them forward.

“We were a bit disappointed to only get the point because when we were breaking away we were causing problems and if we could have continued that for a longer period in the second half then maybe we would have come away with all three points.

“For the last few games it's been a case of our opponents nicking goals really. They haven't really broken us down or picked us open, they've been deflections or rebounds and individual mistakes.”
