“In my mind there was never any doubt we would stay up and I’ve always had faith in these players,” Sinton said after Phil Trainer’s late goal ensured a 1-0 win over Tamworth.
“I was probably the calmest man in the ground again tonight and I always felt we’d get a clear-cut chance,” Sinton added. “I thought we were terrific in the second-half. We got after them and showed real belief, desire and determination to stay in the Conference.”

I don’t set targets but for me, in my own mind, this year was always just about staying up and thankfully we’ve done that with two games to spare.”
