Stockley: That was definitely our best team performance

Goal scorer Jayden Stockley found the back of the net meaning Fleetwood Town would take three points from their clash against Lincoln City at Highbury.

Scott Brown’s men made it two wins in a row on Saturday after a controversial goal opened the scoring before Stockley pulled off a diving header from Phoenix Patterson’s set-piece to cancel out Regan Poole’s first-half equaliser.

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

On his brace…

“We’ll see what happens with my first goal, it was a bundle in the box, me, and the centre half both went for it. So, we’ll see what happens. I got the second one, but I should have had more today. I have two cleared off the line, so that would have been nice.

“I saw the goalkeeper off the line, and I thought he’d read me at the near post, so I reversed it, but he read me as well. Maybe I could have taken a touch, but disappointed because at 1-0 it’s a dangerous score line, so I could have put us two up.

“I hadn’t got one from a corner all season which was bugging me, so I wanted to attack that for [Phoenix] Patterson’s ball. I just dived and put my head on it, and I think it’s just flew into the top corner - nice to get a bit of luck on that one.”

On the team performance…

“That was definitely our best team performance since I’ve been here, baring a ten-minute spell, we were in control and the energy was there. That has backed the big win up from last week, with another one there today which I thought was important.

“I’ve been watching Phoenix closely in training, looking where he’s putting balls, especially on set pieces and I love scoring goals from corners. It’s been a massive advantage of my game, scoring from set pieces and I hadn’t done it for a while so that was nice.

“It’s nice to see me getting my form back for me personally. I got 20 goals last year; thought I’d back it up again but for many reasons it hasn’t happened. I’ve got to look within and see why it hasn’t happened for me. I should be a striker at this level who scores a lot of goals.”
