FOR FEENEY AS CURLE FEELS SICK
here and I had every confidence in them.
“I’m delighted with that. It’s a big performance and a big win for us.”
Boden had missed a glorious chance in the first half but he was in the right place to divert Alex Rodman’s shot into the net from close range for his 11th goal of the season 11 minutes after the break.
And the hosts were rarely troubled by a Carlisle side who had Brandon Comley sent off for a second yellow card in stoppage time.
“I said that we have a squad that’s more than capable of staying up and I firmly believe that,” added Feeney.
“We proved that here. The back five were magnificent – clean sheets win football matches.
“But everyone put a shift in and I don’t praise individuals – it’s a squad game.
“It’s in our hands now. Getting to 30 points is a big psychological barrier and I’m confident we can match anyone in this league.”
Carlisle manager Keith Curle revealed that his squad was badly affected by a sickness bug in the build up.
“I’m disappointed,” he said.“There’s been a virus that’s gone through the camp – sickness and diarrhoea. “The players are still feeling unwell and weak and because of that it was a below-par performance.
“We had a few half chances in the first half and I think if we had got the first goal it might have given us that little bit of a lift, that spark and brightness that we were missing.
“But they played the pitch and the conditions a lot better than us.
“It wasn’t a day to play football. It was a day to keep your shape and defend with assuredness and they did that.”
