Max Power on his wonder strike against AFC Wimbledon

"I was getting to the point where I thought I wasn't going to score again.  That's how I've been feeling at times, even last weekend when I came on against Fleetwood I got a chance in the box, couldn't have hit it any better and the keeper made a great save.

"I practice finishing every day in training and it's nice when it comes off like that, it's a great feeling."

Max Power on turning things around

"This goal means a lot to me.  Going back to the summer, I've had a tough time and I've worked really hard to put all of that behind me, so to score today was a nice feeling.

"I don't want to go on about it too much, but it really was a tough summer for me.  Sometimes it's really hard to win fans back over, I've tried to do it the right way with my performances.

"Hopefully I can get on a bit of a goal trail now because I know I've got it in me.

"I think you can see how much this means to me from the celebration."

Max Power on scoring in front of his Dad

"I'm glad my Dad was here to see it, he travels up and down the country to see me. He's tiny, so he'll have been somewhere amongst our fans celebrating.

"I watched Dan Burn's interview last week and like he said, it's nice when your family see you play.  My Dad has followed me everywhere since I was little, I owe a lot to him and I was trying to find him in the fans.

Max Power on an enjoyable day out for the fans

"The fans really enjoy coming to stadiums like this. It's old school, close to the pitch and a good atmosphere.

"These are the type of away games we'll look back to at the end of the season and hopefully we can reach our goal of promotion so that we can celebrate wins like this.

"It's a big thanks to the fans for coming up and down the country to watch us."
