Tim Flowers reacts to Maidenhead win

4 months ago By Luke Turner

*'For the first couple of games, they've been magnificent'*

Tim Flowers on the performance…

“I thought we were a level above our performance at Eastleigh, if I’m honest. We could’ve scored more goals if we’d been a little bit more ruthless.

“We carved out one or two decent opportunities. Maidenhead paid us the complement of matching us up – they’ve changed their shape and one or two personnel.

“All in all, if you’d asked me at kick off a few days ago that we’d have took six points from six I’d have snatched your hand off.

“We’ve got to be delighted as a football club. We’ve got a small squad and it’s already stretched.”

Tim Flowers on the presence of Danny Wright…

“If we’d have gone 2-0 up (from the penalty) then it’s a mountain to climb (for Maidenhead). Danny Wright was a menace all night.

“He was getting his body in, he was running till the end which shows testament to his fitness levels and he is the leader of the strikers.

“He’s the guy that’s the most experienced, he’s been round the block, they respect him and he keeps opposition defenders genuine.

“I thought he was magnificent today the way he led the line.”

Tim Flowers on his defence…

“It was also a good, solid defensive show. I don’t remember Ryan Boot throwing himself around like he did at Eastleigh, so we were better in that respect.

“We regroup on Thursday. I’ve already had a little look at Aldershot – they’re a good side and they’ll be there or there about.

“We’ve got a lot to do and it’s a long long season, but I did ask the boys for a better start than we’ve had in recent history and so that’s a decent start.”

Tim Flowers on the importance of going into the lead and Adi Yussuf’s form…

“The first goal is always a big goal and what a great goal it was. Brilliant work from Jermaine (Hylton) just outside the box on the right-hand side – he can be unplayable at times, his feet are like greased lightning with little flicks and tricks.

“He’s gone by the lad, cut a great ball back for Adi who’s made a super run across the goal and a great finish.

“Adi’s a goal scorer; his career stats tell you he’s a goal scorer. If he gets in a vein of form, he can score heavy.

“He was a threat tonight, worked really hard for the team and it’s all about the team here.”

Tim Flowers on the start his side have made to the season…

“For the first couple of games, they’ve been magnificent. Clearly the fitness levels are there, they’re going till the end.

“Can we play better? Yes, but hopefully that will come down the line.”

Tim Flowers on coming up against Aldershot Town next…

“They’re a top side. Gary (Waddock) is an outstanding manager who’s managed in the Football League.

“They’ve got an outstanding squad with some really good players at this level, so we’re going to have to be right on our game to get anything at all out of it.

“I believe we’ve got a very good spirit here. We’ve got lads who are willing to put their body on the line for the football club and we’ll hopefully present a challenge.”

Tim Flowers on injuries and suspensions…

“We’ve got one or two that need nursing at the moment. Kwame (Thomas) and Alex Gudger couldn’t play tonight.

“Kwame might be available on Saturday and I’m also hoping that Gudge will be close.

“We lose Jamie Reckord now. We were trying to make a substitution and the fourth official wasn’t ready which was disappointing – that tackle would never have happened then.

“We’ll have to take it on the chin. We move on and we’ve got three mentally tough games now against teams who got in the play-offs last year.”
