Jorge Grant: 'Winner over Oxford City one of best feelings I've had in football'

Joe Jones

Jorge Grant has described his last-gasp winning goal in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Oxford City as "one of the best feelings" he has experienced in football.

The Nottingham Forest loanee struck deep into stoppage time with the scores level and the prospect of a second-round replay looming to put Notts into the third round for the first time in six seasons.

Grant, who has been a sensation for the Magpies this season and last, scored his 14th goal of the campaign and was understandably delighted after the game.

"I played the ball out wide to Terry Hawkridge and thought I had to get in the box to the back post," Grant told the official Notts site.

"Luckily enough the goalkeeper parried the ball straight to me so I concentrated on not missing the target from two yards out!

"The way the game was going was frustrating for us but afterwards was just relief for all the hard work we have put in through the week and the 90 minutes. It's one of the best feelings I have had."

Speaking about Saturday's opponents, Grant added: "Oxford City were very good. They were always going to come here and give it 100%.

"They shouldn't be as low as they are in their league; they played some good football and gave us a difficult test.

"The gaffer told us to relax at half-time. They got under our skin a little in the first half; we were slashing at things and doing things we wouldn't normally do, so we had to keep our composure."
