Paul Lewis was thrilled to make an impact off the bench as he helped Tranmere Rovers to a 2-0 victory versus Scunthorpe United.
Replacing Stefan Payne in the 26th minute of the match- a substitution made by manager Mike Jackson for tactical purposes- Lewis was deployed in an advanced position and helped set-up the Whites’ opening goal of the contest.
The former Cambridge United midfielder was content with his overall match contribution, as well as the professional attitude shown by Payne.
“That’s what you want to try and do when you come on- make a difference and help the boys. I feel for Payney, but he was the first in the changing room who was buzzing for the boys to get the three points,” said the 25-year-old.
“I prefer to play a bit further forward, but you play wherever the manager tells you to. That suits my game," added Lewis on featuring further up the pitch.
“I think we deserved that after our performance from last week. We were unlucky not to get the three points there. I thought it was a professional, hard-working display from the boys today."
