Maidstone United manager Jay Saunders has defended his decision to substitute Jack Paxman following heavy booing at the Gallagher, report Kent Online.

Maidstone fans made their feelings known after Saunders withdrew goalscorer Paxman in their Bank Holiday Monday defeat by Boreham Wood.

The midfielder made way for striker Shamir Mullings in a change of formation with the score at 1-1 but United went on to lose 2-1.

Saunders said: “I’ll always make decisions I think are right at the time.

“If we go on and win the game it’s the right decision. People can go, ‘oh we lost the game’ but I’m saying to you now we haven’t lost that game because I took Jack Paxman off.

“It doesn’t bother me whether I get booed. I’m a manager, I make decisions.”
