Will Evans reflected on his match-saving contribution at either end of the pitch in yesterday's thrilling 3-3 draw against Ebbsfleet United, scoring a late equaliser before taking over in goal deep into stoppage time and saving a penalty.

Evans said: "It was surreal, the whole thing. It was crazy, to be honest with you. Scoring the equaliser was incredible. We said to ourselves in the back four that we can't lose this game. 

"With Cal getting sent-off and having to face a penalty was bizarre, to say the least. It wasn't a great penalty but you still have to be there and save it. It was a great feeling!"

The 27-year-old defender is hoping that the superb second-half comeback, after being three-nil down at the break, will prove to be a turning point.

He said: "Something like this can turn a season around and it can bring you a bit of belief and momentum to go forward. We want to step up and move on forward. We need to get out of the bottom four and not look back."

Evans paid tribute to caretaker-manager John Pemberton, saying: "The gaffer has given us a little bit of belief. His training sessions and things like that have been really good.  

"He's always had belief in us. He's been unbelievable with us, from day one. He changed a few things round and it showed that we have got something."
