Windass sees bigger picture

25 April 2016

Josh Windass isn't concentrating on individual milestones as he targets promotion to League One for Stanley.

The 22-year-old scored his 15th and 16th goals of the season as the Reds beat York 3-0 to remain second in the table.

He's now one behind strike partner Billy Kee for the season but doesn't think who gets more is important.

"I'm one behind Billy now but Billy could have shot for my second instead of laying it off to me," he said. "None of us are really bothered about finishing top scorer, as long as we get promoted. Naz the kit man can come on and get 20 goals as long as we go up!

"The job's not done. If you'd said to us before the start of the season we'd be guaranteed a play-off place with three games to go we would've taken your hand off so to be second with two games to go is unbelievable."

Windass found the net after 68 minutes with a crisp volley from the edge of the box before adding the third in stoppage time, finishing off a passing move inside the area.

"Normally the gaffer would be going mad at me (for the first goal) because the cross came in and I didn't get into the box. I just stayed on the edge because my legs were tired at the time and I saw the ball come out from the area, I got there before the defender and I just thought I'd hit it with my left foot. Thankfully it went into the bottom corner.

"The second one took about 400 deflections and went in but it was on target so I think it's still my goal!"

John Coleman's team are two points clear of fourth spot with a trip to Wycombe and a home game with Stevenage still to come. Windass is backing them to go from strength to strength.

"We're not feeling the pressure," he insisted. "Because we're not expected to be there I don't think there is too much pressure. We just approach the next game, if we win it then great and if we don't we're confident we can win the one after that."
