AFC Liverpool manager Chris Anderson has praised his side for showing “cojones” in their comeback win over Padiham in the FA Cup.
His side found themselves 2-0 down at half-time only to pull of a magnificent comeback topped off by a 90-minute winner from Kyle Schorah.
Anderson admitted that the second half advantage was a “blessing” after a poor first half.
“I didn’t think we played well at all and we still created four chances [in the first half], if one of those goes in obviously it’s a different story.
“But that maybe galvanised us to go on in the second half, poor first half still had chances and then if we get the first goal we’re well in and because we were downhill every goal scored was downhill so we had it the second so that was a blessing.
“I think about a year ago we’d of lost a game, knowing now even if you play bad and still win I would say is a sign of a good team which obviously isn’t something I want to do every week because the opposition might not give you the opportunities to get you back in second.
“But to also show a pair of cojones really they’ve got something about them to get back in the game.
“The FA Cup is about results is not about playing well and getting through to the next round.
“Class [Schorah’s winner], we had an opportunity before that, Benni McCarthy hit the crossbar before so that’s one gone. We hit the post I thought that was probably it, but when the winner goes in it’s different level. If you want to win a game in the FA Cup that’s how you want to do it, as a fan anyway, that elation when you do score.”
