Sean McConville admits he enjoys the wonder goal – he was just gutted his 45-yard goal on Tuesday didn’t result in a win.
The winger got the ball just inside the centre circle in the away half, spotted the keeper off his line and found the back of the net in the Checkatrade Trophy last 64 clash at Lincoln City.
Goalkeeper Paul Farman was given the goal by Sky as he tipped the audacious shot onto the bar, the ball was the heading for the back of the net but it has hit the stopper and went in.
The official Checkatrade Trophy account credited McConville with the goal – and he feels he should have it in the 3-2 loss.
“It doesn’t make sense as their keeper doesn’t want it and it was going in anyway, so it should be mine,” said the wideman. “The ref said he would give it to me and said it was the best goal he had seen.
“I am definitely happier when I score a goal like that.
“I did it against Leyton Orient last season and it is just a split second decision, I saw the back four back off and that the keeper was a few yards off his line and just thought ‘why not?’
“I do like the spectacular goals – I scored a great one at Hereford a few seasons ago and then got goal of the round when we beat Luton in the FA Cup last season.
“The only sour note is that we lost on Tuesday, that takes the gloss of it, but when I finish my career I will look back on it I will be proud.”

You can see if McConville can turn on the style again this weekend as Stanley take on Swindon at the Wham Stadium.
