No Vyner Feeling

Zak on His First Goal

11 February 2018

ZAK Vyner thanked the Green Army for contributing to his “unbelievable” first senior goal.

Zak’s second-half header at Shrewsbury Town completed a superb turnaround for the Pilgrims, who conceded an early goal and saw a Graham Carey penalty saved before a 27th-minute equaliser from Jamie Ness set up Zak to seal a 2-1 victory.

“’Unbelievable’ is the only word that comes to mind,” said the on-loan Bristol City centre-back, of the moment he bundled home Graham’s corner-kick in front of a near 1,000 Argyle supporters.

“It is one of those moments that will just stick with me. Every moment in first-team football, you relish, and especially moments like that. 

“The fans stuck round us. They didn’t stop singing which is perfect for us – that’s what we needed and it helped us get the two goals.

“They should their support the whole game, from minute one. When [Shrewsbury] scored, they still showed their support, so it was great to [score] in front of them. 

“They deserved the performance we put in and I feel that we, as a club, deserved the three points.”

Although his first senior goal will be a moment to remember for ever, Zak will need a little look at the recording of the game to determine exactly how he put his name in the record books following a period of Argyle pressure. 

He said: “We had good chances in the second half, so I think it was just one of those moments when it had to happen. 

“I can’t remember whether the ball hit off me or my marker and it felt like I tackled it in, to be honest, but I’ll take it. Instinct. It felt good. 

“We deserved it and we deserved the win, as well. [Shrewsbury] pushed in the last ten minutes but, for the majority of the second half, we were on top and kept pushing for the goal.

“Luckily, it was me who got it.”
