WHILE Steve Jagielka's goal against Halifax cheered up the Stanley fans, he managed to upset one of his friends.
Jagielka's wonder volley was the much-needed equaliser and sent the Reds fans into raptures.
But the midfielder admitted: "One of my mates had bet on me at 25-1 to score the first goal of the game. I scored the second so he wasn't too happy with me!"
The former Shrewsbury and Sheffield United player has scored two in two games and admitted it was time he got some goals in a Stanley shirt.
"The way we play, I have been restricted going forward as we tend to leave it to Rory, Craney, Mullers and Macca to be higher up the field.
"I know I should have scored more goals as I had a couple of chances in the 5-0 win against Northwich.
"But I will keep getting into the goalscoring positions out wide and, although I never set target, hopefully I will pitch in with a few more goals this season. "
Jagielka admitted the victory over Halifax was vital for Stanley's play-off chances.
"It was a big game as we needed to win. We have been unlucky and dropped silly points this season so it was nice to pick up three against a team who are up there challenging with us.
"And I am always happy to score. A few of my mates text me after the game to say what a good goal it was and it must rank up there with one of the best - but I haven't had chance to see it again yet!"
He knows it has been a topsy turvy season so far for the Reds and they need to make sure that, after the high of Monday, they get the better of Farnborough at home on Saturday.
Stanley have let themselves down against the lower placed teams this season and Jagielka knows they have to stay focused.
"We tend to bring ourselves down to other teams level when we play against the lower teams," he said.
"It is not intentional, it just seems to happen and obviously we have to rectify this on Saturday and make sure it doesn't happen again.
"Hopefully we will get off to a good start and settle a few nerves and go on and pick up the three points."
And the players might begin with a "group hug" which worked so well at the Shay.
"It's just something to gee the lads up. We try different things and it gets us going. You have got to try and enjoy your football as well and that just gets the lads together before the game and gets us ready."
And hopefully it will work for the rest of the season as they plot the route into the play-off places.
"It is such a tight league and so many teams can still make it into the play-offs," added Jagielka.
"We have to make sure we are one of them. We can't lose too many now, we know that, as we don't want to be playing catch up. But teams are dropping points around us so we have to make sure we stay there.
"We beat Halifax and now we have got to build on that and try and win a couple of games together and that should move us back up there."
