Forward Ellis Harrison after Fleetwood Town drew 1-1 with MK Dons in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday night at Highbury Stadium.

Harrison’s assist was vital for Paddy Lane’s equalising goal after Harry Darling opened up the scoring for the visitors. In what is Harrison’s fifth goal contribution since joining the club is proving a key man in Crainey’s side who are currently four unbeaten.

Here’s what he had to say:

On the match…

“It was a scrap. We fought well in the second half as we got a rocket from the manager at half-time and we needed it - we have to fight and that’s what we did - one point is the bare minimum we need for the position we’re in.

“We have lacked the cutting edge in some games but it’s a credit to all the lads because we do dig deep especially when we go one down in games, but we have the belief and quality to get back into it, since I’ve come here we have lost one game - the fight we show is outstanding”

On the mood around camp…

“We all dig in for each other, personally if I didn’t contribute to anything I’d be as happy as contributing as long as we’re picking up points.

“On the pitch we all fight for the club, everyone can see that - it’s not just the players who fight for each other it’s the staff as well where we play for them as they work effortlessly with us so we can impress everyone around the club.”

On Paddy Lane’s national recognition …

“Are you surprised? Since I’ve come in, he’s been great, plays ahead of his years, he gets goals and assists, what more could you want?

“We have all sorts of players that can make an impact and the lads who do come off the bench change games which is what we all want as we all know the situation we’re in to avoid being down the bottom end.”
