Chris Kiwomya: Delighted with winning result

Former County man Karl Hawley proved the villain for Scunthorpe after missing a host of guilt-edge chances for the Iron in the second half which ultimately cost his side dearly.

Defender Dean Leacock - back after a two-game ban - stroked in the winner in the 81st minute for County and kept them in touch with the race for the playoffs.

Kiwomya said his side responded well after their below-par performance in losing to Preston at home on Tuesday night.

He said: "I always thought that whoever got the first goal would win the game. It was a lot better than Tuesday. We were a lot more committed and knew what we wanted to do and created a lot more chances than against Preston.

"On Tuesday night we all got a lot of stick and rightly so. If you don't perform to the standards we have set ourselves we will come in for a bit of stick.

"We have to take that criticism and turn it into a positive and we did today. Playing 4-4-2 you will leave yourself a bit open and we did at times but at this stage of the season you need the wins."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
