Salford players gather together to celebrate Ian Henderson's winning goal in the 2-1 victory against Stevenage at The Peninsula StadiumSalford City made it back-to-back wins for the first time since February with a 2-1 victory against Stevenage.

Brandon Thomas-Asante and Ian Henderson scored either side of a wonderful Luther James-Wildin strike to secure the points.

In-form Stevenage were 12 unbeaten heading into the afternoon, but hadn’t won or even scored in three previous meetings with The Ammies.

No surprise then when Thomas-Asante opened the scoring from close range, however Wildin responded with a great strike from outside the area within a few minutes. It came somewhat against the run of play and chances, as did the second half blizzard, but Salford restored their lead when Henderson nodded in an Ibou Touray corner with just over 10 minutes to go.

Reflecting on his second win in charge, manager Gary Bowyer said:

“It’s been a brilliant afternoon for us, for the two strikers to get the goals is really pleasing and I thought the work that those two put in pressing from the front, you earn your rewards and they got that with their goals today.

“But it’s very difficult to single out any individual because I thought it was a massive team effort again.

“Ever since I’ve come in the energy levels from the players have been brilliant and that’s all you can ask for, the performances have been backed up with that and looking forward now we’ve got to recover as quickly as we can and get ready now for a really nice game on Tuesday night here.”

The Ammies are back at The Peninsula Stadium on Tuesday evening when Bolton Wanderers visit (KO 19:00).
