JOINT boss Bernard Morley said Radcliffe’s stunning comeback to beat Macclesfield at a packed Neuven Stadium on Tuesday night was just ‘incredible’.

In what has been called one of the greatest night’s in the club’s history, Boro were 2-0 down after just seven minutes and 3-0 down inside half an hour before Morley and Anthony Johnson’s side produced the comeback of comebacks to seal a memorable and unbelievable 4-3 victory.

John Rooney fired Macc ahead after just four minutes with a superb strike and Boro were rocking when Neil Kenghi doubled the lead just three minutes.

Boro dominated the second half the completed the turnaround thanks to two goals from Josh Hancock, the frist from the penalty spot on the hour mark before scoring the goal of the game just minutes later.

“At 3-0 you are over thinking, have we done enough diligence on the opposition, is it a freak result are we going to get back in the game, how are we going to get back in the game,” Morley told the club website.

“Do we get desperate, do we make changes or do we just stick with the process, the squad, the system that we believe in that has got us to where we are in the league.

“And that was the decision to stay with it and trust the players to find a way to get back in the game.”

He added: “I have been in some games in the 16 years we have been doing it, the euphoria we have just got from that is incredible and I take my hat off to the lads.

“They have dug deep, found a way, not only found a way to win a game a football from 3-0 down but found a way to beat the favourites of this league. It is incredible.”

Morley was delighted with the way Boro dominating proceedings after the break.

“We started the second half alright and we just took control of the game and I felt that we dominated them until the last five or six minutes where Macclesfield threw the kitchen sink at it but I thought we defended immensely.”

Morley had a special word for the fans that witnessed the memorable win.

“Outstanding,” he said. “It was a big game and we expected it to be a great atmosphere. Fair play to these the numbers are creeping up every week, they get behind us, the crowd throughout were brilliant.”
