Braintree Town manager Brad Quinton hailed the impact of two of his substitutes as his side staged another thrilling finale in their Vanarama National League South win against Whitehawk.

Whitehawk, who had their relegation confirmed by the 4-3 defeat, had led at half-time and then 3-2 in the second half, but the Iron turned the game on its head late on. Just as they had in their previous game, they snatched a winner deep in time added-on at the end, with Reece Grant scoring the decisive fourth on this occasion.

He also scored the third of the four goals – all of which were from headers – with Jon Muleba and Marc-Anthony Okoye getting the first two. Grant had been a 62nd minute substitute and Quinton felt, along with another player who came off the bench – Roman Michael-Percil – they helped turn the tide of the game.

Iron boss Quinton said: “A lot happened in the second half after we bought Roman (Michael-Percil) on; I thought he was terrific and was my man-of-the-match. But he need to be doing that every single week so that’s the challenge for him now and Reece (Grant) did very well when he came on as well.”
