â€śIt was huge. I think the second half was the biggest factor for us." Nicol said after his team's 2-1 win.
"Sitting watching it from where I am, Iâ€™m thinking this is more like our team; this is what weâ€™re all about: showing some heart and playing some good soccer. The second half was clearly the best weâ€™ve played all season. We need to start reproducing it between now and the end of the season more often.â€ť
In relation to Twellman's return, Nicol continued, â€śHe puts the ball in the net, for starters.
â€śThereâ€™s not too many guys in the world who can do that. He also takes pressure off other players, as well.
â€śIf youâ€™re playing against Taylor (Twellman) you have to make sure that you know where he is and you have to be concerned about it, which means youâ€™re taking your eye off something else. So even if he doesnâ€™t touch (the ball), heâ€™s a benefit because he opens holes for other people. I mean, you look at the goals (tonight) as the example.
â€śTwo guys were with Taylor, Shalrie (Joseph) makes his run and heâ€™s on his own and scores. That can tell you how important to us he is.â€ť
