Mingoia in team of the week

Stanley midfielder Piero Mingoia has been named in the Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week.

The 23-year-old produced a matchwinning performance against Cambridge United on Saturday, scoring both goals in the 2-1 win, and has been rewarded with a spot alongside the most eyecatching performers in the Championship, League One and League Two.

“It’s been a great week,” he said. “A bit strange but that’s football I suppose! If you get given a chance you just have to take it and I think that I managed to do that.

“It’s always nice to know you’ve been trusted to go out and help the team again so obviously when I found out I was playing I just wanted to improve from the game on Tuesday and kick on again.”

It was Mingoia’s first Football League brace on the occasion of only his second start since September and the former Watford man feels he was rewarded for being bold.

“This season I’ve said to myself that I’m going to try to shoot a bit more and I let off a few shots and the first one was quite good then I was getting a few deflections here and there and it seemed like it was just going my way really,” he explained.

“It’s got to be at the top in terms of my career so far. It’s the first time I’ve scored two goals in a professional game and after a little spell where I hadn’t been in the team it was very pleasing for me.”
