It was, according to Mount, ‘a massive win’ that came a little over 36 hours after many of the players returned to Cobham from various corners of the globe. Ten months earlier, we had conceded a late goal at St James’ Park and dropped three points so this result was another indication of progress being made – we are currently seven points up on corresponding fixtures last season.
‘We know from last season how difficult it is to come here and get a result,’ the 21-year-old said after the game. ‘With the way we’re playing at the moment, we can come to these places and feel confident in getting the result, whereas last season maybe we didn’t have that confidence.
‘We’re building momentum but we can’t get too carried away. We just need to keep focusing on winning games, scoring goals and trying to keep as many clean sheets as we can.’
