Prosser: We rode our luck at times

24 November 2013

Defender delighted to grab his second of the season to make it four wins in a row

Luke Prosser says he ‘didn’t have to do much’ to head home Blues’ winner and seal a 2-1 win against York City at Roots Hall.

The defender headed home deep into injury time to extend the winning run to four games in all competitions.

And while he admits Blues rode their luck at times against Nigel Worthington’s side, he was delighted to come up with the winner so late in the game.

He said: “In the first half we did well to contain York and Kevan Hurst scored a good goal but in the second we found it a bit more difficult.

“I think it’s fair to say we did ride our luck at times during the game, but Dan Bentley pulled off a couple of excellent saves, we dug deep as a team and got the win.

“Sometimes you don’t play as well as you’d like and the most important thing is the three points. Thankfully we got that today.

“I’ve got two goals for the season now and I’d like to think I can get a few more this season, especially with the quality of delivery we’ve got here.

“Ben Coker’s free-kick into the box was terrific, we see him do it every day in training so we’re not surprised at all, and Kevan Hurst can produce just as good with his right foot.

“I’ve hardly had to do anything to score either of my goals so far this season but they’ve both come in wins so I’m absolutely delighted.”

Prosser says the players will go into Tuesday night’s game against Pompey full of confidence, just as they have done against Morecambe, Exeter City and York City.

He added: “A last minute goal always gives you momentum to take into the next game, but we’re playing with lots of confidence.

“We’ve gone into the last three games with lots of belief and confident we can get the win. That’s exactly what we’ve done and that’s exactly the attitude we will take into the Pompey game.”
