Defender Elvis Bwomono said Blues are not giving up in their bid to avoid relegation this season following Saturday’ 2-1 win over Lincoln City.
The 21-year-old defender popped up with the winning goal in the 96th minute against the Imps to hand Sol Campbell’s side their first win at Roots Hall this league campaign.
And afterwards, he spoke about the euphoria surrounding his last-gasp goal and what it will do for the club.
On a dramatic win…
Words can’t describe it! Ecstatic, pleased, but relieved that we’ve finally won [at home] and I’ve contributed with the winning goal.
The squad was very young, we had a 16-year-old [Kenny Coker] coming on and even though I'm still 21 and still very young I feel like I am quite experienced now.
We just have to replicate that now every week. We can’t take our foot off the pedal.
On his thoughts when Lincoln equalised…
That’s just the story of our season. We can do relatively well and hold leads but then eventually we just concede silly goals.
I just knew that a chance would come again for us so I was telling the boys just take one when it does.
On his winning header…
It’s the first time I’ve actually been allowed in the box to go and score and yeah, I just got my head on it, got it on target and it went in.
On what it means to get a first home league win…
I think it’s massive.
It just shows fans that we’re still trying really hard, there’s still games to play and none of the boys are backing off.
A lot of us went through last season so we need to replicate that experience and the win over Lincoln to make sure we can see games out and get more wins.
On his centre back role…
I feel like I adapted well and I’m comfortable anywhere in the back four so I didn't really mind it.
It was a learning experience and going forward I don’t mind doing it for the team if needed.
On the fans…
The fans are fantastic , they’ve stayed with us through the bad times. A lot of them still stayed around at 1-1 and they’re a driving force for us.
When we have the fans’ backing we know we can pull off performances like that!
