Jonathan Forte: 'Brilliant feeling to score winner for Notts County'

Joe Jones

Jonathan Forte has described scoring the winner in Notts County's first League Two victory since October as "a brilliant feeling"

The striker's late goal against Crawley Town on Saturday helped the Magpies to a 2-1 win and lifted the struggling side out of the relegation zone.

"It feels great, we haven't won in a long time so scoring the winner was a brilliant feeling," Forte told the Nottingham Post.

"I had a chance in the first half when I went through one on one and I think I panicked because I saw two players coming in and thought 'right I might have to hit it early'.

"The keeper made a decent save but I think I should have gone the other way. Then I had a header and I'm not really renowned for those but that was unlucky not to go in.

"But I was just happy to get the winner. When they scored it deflated us and I thought 'here we go again'.

"We got ourselves back into it and in the past few weeks that wouldn't have happened. They'd have gone down the other end and scored but obviously this time we've got the goal and we're all delighted."

Notts had a spring in their steps from scoring the first goal, after Crawley scored I though here we go but credit to the players they held up and scored again.

Forte could be a big player us.
