MULLIN | I’m Going to Score the Winner and Take My Top Off!

Mullin's plan works out perfectly!

24 November 2021

Paul Mullin’s added on time strike proved to be enough to secure his side three points and hand Halifax their first home defeat since the opening day of the season.

The Wrexham striker’s composed finish not only completed their comeback in dramatic fashion, but also earned their third consecutive away win on the bounce.

After the game, Mullin revealed he had feeling he was going to score the winner and knew exactly what his celebration was going to be.

He said: “I can’t remember who I said it too, but I said I’m going to score the winner and take my top off.

“Sometimes in football you just get a feeling and thankfully that happened today that feeling became reality.

“To celebrate with the supporters was great because they were the ones behind us when we went a goal down so to give it back to them was equally important.”

Mullin was extremely quick to praise the 1,212 travelling supporters after the full-time whistle, who roared the Red Dragons on to secure the three points.

“It was unbelievable support again; we went one nil down and they were the ones cheering us on in a moment where we were in despair.

“They gave us a massive lift and it was a great moment to share the victory with them.

“There’s no better feeling than scoring a late goal in front of 1200 travelling fans and it’s a big boost for us going into the weekend.”

Despite revelling in the elation of victory, the former Sky Bet League Two top goal scorer explained they must be more expressive when they return to the Racecourse on Saturday against Bromley.

“Whilst we’re unbeaten at home we need to go out and play with a lot more expression on the front foot and get after teams.

“The fans are here to help us, and we need to repay that and get more points at home.

“We need to get more points at home, we need to start getting that run going and we work hard every day to try and achieve that.”

Our game on Saturday against Bromley is the first of two at home as we are at the Racecourse again next Tuesday night against Yeovil.
