Match winner Steph Morley admitted the AFC Telford United squad could envisage having the success they have had when they were pieced together way back in August.

The full back was back in the side this week and back among the goals against Curzon Ashton with a first half brace.

The win puts the Bucks on the brink of the play offs now, and Morley believes the Bucks can relish three big games in the coming weeks.

He said: "They are massive games for us now.

"At the start of the season when we were put together, in ourselves we knew we had a good squad.

"But not many outside it thought that.

"We have lads who have been successful in this league.

"I think we are a better side under pressure too, we seem to turn up and that happens in football.

"At times lads struggle to get up for playing away in front of 20 people.


"Our home form has been great, it is because we have a good crowd and always put a good show on."

Ironically, the last time the full back got a brace was against Curzon Ashton for his former side Tamworth.

He also admitted it was a bit of swing at the second goal, as he connected with his wrong foot.

He added: "The last time I got a brace funnily enough was two years ago for Tamworth against Curzon, so I am probably their bogey player.


"Before that it was Sunday league.

"The second goal was lucky as I was supposed to be in the box, but I couldn't get there and I just swing my right foot at it.

"It was job done at three and we were too comfortable, but we were just happy to get the three goals."
