Forward Carlos Mendes Gomes spoke to the media this afternoon after scoring one and assisting two more in Fleetwood Town’s win over Accrington Stanley.

In a brilliant performance from the loanee, he managed to open the scoring before showing his talents by picking out Shaun Rooney with a cross for the second and the head of Josh Earl for the third and final goal of the game.

Here’s what Carlos had to say after the game:

On the performance…

“I’m happy; honestly, we knew how important the game was. We haven’t been picking up wins at home since Plymouth I think, and obviously, the game being a derby we knew we were up for a battle.

“The first half was a little bit fifty-fifty, but I think we picked it up quite well. I think we were putting pressure on them; they were moving the ball well but second half we knew we had to press more. I was fortunate to get the first goal and build up from there.

“I think everyone will agree that as a footballer, confidence is everything. Obviously, after getting the first goal, I got that little boost.”

On the fans and moving forwards…

“I think it’s a great environment and confidence in the team and it’s a nice feeling that we’ll be going out there next week and putting a smile on people’s faces.

“It’s what football is about and obviously it’s funny that the chairman is paying for drinks for however many thousand fans.”

“After a good win we want to keep it going and I think we have been unfortunate in different games. Now, it’s about building on that win and moving forward.”
