Sean Marks will claim Maidenhead United’s winner against Woking on Tuesday night, even if he’s not 100 per cent sure he got the final touch.
Marks, who led the line well throughout the 90 minutes for the Magpies, was on hand to bundle home Sam Barratt’s left wing cross and the win should just about guarantee the Magpies will be playing National League football next season.
Marks has managed only five league goals all season, but Alan Devonshire has stood by his big front man, in the knowledge that he brings much more to the side than just goals. And, having been one of the side’s unsung heroes in their first ever campaign at this level, it was nice for the striker to get the plaudits.
“Yeah, it feels good,” he said. “I don’t know 100 per cent if it was mine but I’m still claiming it. If Harry Kane’s claiming that one the other day then I’m claiming it.
“I think we had a good response after going behind. It was a bit of a comical goal, but we dug in.
“I think we all thought there was an opportunity today to get the win, get us going again. And we responded really well. After that we were the only team that looked like scoring. They were time wasting and we just took our chances in the end.
“We’ve been treading on eggshells, both teams, wandering if we’ve got enough points to stay up. But I thought we played really well. Created some chances first half and were a bit unlucky. And apart from a 10 minute spell when we were under the cosh a little I thought we were really good.”
