Ethan: We’ve added ‘the dark arts’ to our game – News


Ethan Chislett praised his colleague in midfield Harry Pell for bringing a darker side to our win over League Two leaders Leyton Orient last night.

“The best thing about Harry is that he’s like a rope merchant in the country, isn’t he?” Ethan said about our sponsors’ man of the match.

“It’s brilliant because it spreads. I think we needed a little bit of that, especially with some of the things that happened last year. I think we need those ‘dark arts’ in the game and Harry has them in abundance. He can also stick it in the upper containers!”

First-half goals from Ayoub Assal and Harry finally sealed back-to-back league wins for us for the first time since September last year, although Ethan came close to adding a third goal after the break on his return from injury.

“We’ve been trying to isolate Ayoub from the wings and see what he can do,” Ethan said. “It always helps when you get a second for a team’s trust. Morals and belief were raised, and Harry’s ending was amazing too, so credit to both of them.

“Their goalie hit my free kick off the post. I think he was already celebrating! It’s something I practice, so I hope the next one will come in.

“I have been taking care of my pimple for a while. In the win at home against Harrogate it was a clear and definitive penalty, as their player cut me exactly where I was, but now I feel much better and I was able to complete the 90 minutes too, so I feel good. .”

Having gone six unbeaten, Ethan is determined to maintain our performance levels with a first visit to Salford City this Saturday.

“We’ll be willing to do it,” Ethan said. “We are on a good run of form and we want to continue like this. Confidence is high and belief and morale are there, so hopefully we can back it up with another win.

“The boys worked hard for a man. The substitutes that came on did their job and impacted the game. The two goals in the first half helped and then we knew what we had to do in the second half to finish them off. Throughout the game I thought we looked like the most threatening team, and it was a well-deserved result.”
