Manager Gary Bowyer felt his side were justly rewarded with three points against Bradford City, and feels that Salford are only going in one direction.
A late goal from Matthew Lund was enough to see off the third-placed Bantams at The Peninsula Stadium after an open and entertaining game.
The Ammies have been on the wrong end of good performances of late, and for a while looked like they might have been held again, until Lund popped up at the back post to put away a Josh Morris corner in the last minute of the 90.
It is, the Gaffer says, a reflection of the hard work that the team puts in during training and in matches and today’s win was particularly sweet.
“There’s never a bad time to score a goal but obviously to score at the death like that and the manner in which we did was really rewarding because we put a lot of effort in this week in terms of set plays.
“I’m delighted for them, the amount of work they’ve put in, the environment, the atmosphere at training all week, and like I say we’re delighted to get all three points.
“The players have got their rewards for sticking at it, we’ve thrown ourselves in front of it, blocked shots and we’re delighted with that. It’s the togetherness that the group has got, they’re a tight-knit bunch they’re very open and honest with each other throughout the week and in their work as well, and we’ve only had seven games so we’re only going to get stronger as we get to know each other in my opinion.
“Lundy’s disappointed that he’s not scored already this season but the beauty of him is that he’s kept going and getting himself in there, and he’s got his rewards today with it.”
Salford, up to 14th and three points behind the play-offs, will be hoping to follow-up with another win away at Tranmere Rovers next weekend.
