Stanley's top scorer Sean McConville admitted he opened the scoring and made the second goal against Lincoln on Friday night with a blooded foot.
The midfielder picked up an injury early in the game and battled on until the 48th minute until he had to be subbed so he could have stitches in the wound.
"I had to have a few stitches in the foot,"¿he said. "It happened in the first five minutes but I think adrenaline got me through the first half and I went in at half-time, took my sock off and there was a bit of a gash there.
"I tried to go out in the second half and give it a go but I couldn’t pass the ball as it was hurting my foot.
"It’s been stitched up and hopefully a couple of days rest on it and I’ll be okay for Port Vale tomorrow.
"To be honest as soon as I did it I thought I’d broken my foot, but we were on top so I just kept going and I was pleased to get the goal.
"It was a lovely one-two for the first goal with Terry Gornell, great build up and I did well to finish it.
"For Terry’s (first) goal I whipped it in there and to be fair it’s a great finish isn’t it? Right in the top corner.
"Unfortunately I didn’t see the third goal as I was too busy getting stitches."
Former Skelmersdale man McConville has got four goals this season and has set himself a target.
"Hopefully I can keep plugging away, keep scoring goals and I don’t see why I can’t kick on this year and score 15 or so.
"I’ve always said double figures because I struggled in the first season.
"The gaffer’s been chipping away at me all week saying ‘are you going to stay on three?’ and ‘you’re not going to score more than three this year.’
"Now I’m on four I can hopefully kick on and get five, six or seven. Double figures is definitely my aim. Once I get to that I’ll set another one."
McConville admitted the new system this season – 4-2-3-1 – has certainly helped his game.
He said: "I love this system. I love getting on the ball. I can go on the left, on the right or in the middle.
"The gaffer’s said to me ‘just get on the ball’ and this year that’s helped me a lot because I can just roam around the pitch, get on the ball and get the lads playing."
