Vaughan hails massive win at Carlisle

24 February 2021

Match-winner James Vaughan feels that Tranmere Rovers’ 3-2 victory away at Carlisle United on Tuesday night has showcased the different ways that Keith Hill’s men can play.

Vaughan was on target twice at Brunton Park, including his late winner, which came from David Nugent’s neat pullback, to earn Rovers all three points in Cumbria.

TRFC had pulled themselves level twice to go in level at half-time through strikes from Kaiyne Woolery and Vaughan’s first of the contest to cancel out openers from Chris Beech's hosts.

And Vaughan, who now has 21 goals in all competitions, shared his delight at the performance.

Vaughan said: “We knew that it would be tough coming here, they are a big, physical team and they were tough conditions, but the lads stood up and got a massive win today.

“We have shown that we can play all different types of ways, and we just need to stick at it and keep doing what we do, and hopefully it will be enough.

“The games are coming thick and fast, so we’ve got the win, but we’ll move on and we’ll go again on Saturday.

“Most of my goals have been down to my team-mates, I’m lucky enough just to be the person on the end of it putting it in, so as long as they keep creating the chances, I’ll keep getting on the end of them.

“It shows the class of the man (Nugent) for him to pick me out there, it would have been easy for him, being at a new club to shoot, but the quality he has got, he laid it onto me.”

Vaughan is enjoying his football with TRFC and is hoping that his goal-scoring run can continue.

He added: “I’m loving it, everyone has been great to me since I’ve been here, and I’m enjoying my football so long may it continue.”
