Aaron Collins delighted with equalising goal against Grimsby Town

Joe Jones

Notts County loanee Aaron Collins has expressed surprise and delight at getting the equalising goal against Grimsby in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Meadow Lane.

Trailing 2-0 to Shaun Pearson's header and an Omar Bogle strike, the Magpies pulled it back through Jonathan Forte's goal and Collins's late strike.

The hosts could have even had a third, but Michael O'Connor struck the bar from a penalty.

"It was a great start and I was so happy to get a goal," Collins said.

"In training on Thursday I hit two left foot shots that flew way over the crossbar.

"And then before the game, I hit another two in the warm-up that went way over.

"But then in the game I ended up making a great connection.

"As soon I struck it I thought it was in. There was a shot I had before that with my right foot that I had made good contact with too. It went into the bottom corner and I am happy with that."

Collins also praised one of the substitutes in particular, adding: "Vadaine came on and changed the game for us.

"We were on the backfoot in the first half, and their keeper made a great save at the end to prevent us from winning.

"Having been two goals down, to come back to take a point – we are happy with that."
