Ryan Peters was feeling ‘over the moon’ after Maidenhead United’s convincing victory against Torquay United on Tuesday evening, a result he felt eclipsed the Magpies’ performance at Chesterfield.
United were able to utilise home advantage and fire four past their high-flying visitors with Nathan Blissett (two), Josh Coley, and Danilo Orsi-Dadomo all chalking their names onto the scoresheet, with Scott Boden netting for Torquay.
Having lost 2-1 to the Gulls earlier in the season, in which Shaun Donnellan scored the Magpies’ only goal, assistant manager Peters was self-satisfied with how his squad outdid their opponents in all departments this time.
“If you remember back to the start of the season when we played them, they destroyed us and were well worth their victory,” he said.
“To be able to do the same as what they did to us and score a few more goals than they did, I’m over the moon with that.
“We try to keep as many clean sheets as possible and we weren’t able to do it tonight (Tuesday), but you can see we’ve got a defensive resilience about us now.
“It’s allowing us to go down the other end with Seth (Twumasi) and a few others who have managed to score or set up some goals.
“We weren’t sure how we were going to eclipse Saturday’s performance [against Chesterfield] but I think we have done just that,” added Peters.
