That is how Chesterfield’s Curtis Weston summed up his 94th minute winner against Wrexham on Saturday.

The midfielder thundered in a half-volley from inside the penalty area which clipped the underside of the crossbar on its way in.

There was a slight a delay as the match officials deliberated whether it had crossed the line but it was given, much to the delight of three sides of the Proact.

“I did have a look over because I honestly did not think it was in to be honest with you,” Weston said.

“The feeling after that was amazing.

“Probably, hopefully, (it is) going to be one of the most important goals I do score so there is no feeling like it.”

An own goal by Will Evans gave the visitors the lead on 21 minutes but Tom Denton equalised four minutes later.

Chesterfield 3 v 2 Wrexham, Curtis Weston's strike just crosses the like to give the Spireites all three points.

Jordan Ponticelli then gave Wrexham the lead in the second-half but again the Spireites levelled soon after through substitute Liam Mandeville.

And with just seconds remaining Weston struck the winner to spark wild scenes.

“We made some individual errors – all of us – I did one where I passed it back to their striker. We are trying to cut them out,” Weson said.

“Apart from that I think for most of the game we were on top and we played some good football as well and had a lot of chances.

“I think the result in the end is probably a fair result.”

John Pemberton has won three and drawn one of his five games in charge as caretaker boss and a decision is due to be made on the managerial situation this week.

When asked what has changed since Pemberton has come in, he said: “Training is a little bit different than how it was.

“I think in training we are working on a lot more organisation and stuff like that and I think that is showing.

“The feel-good factor of today is great going into next week we can take a lot from it I think.”
