Killian Cantwell will be looking up rather than feeling down as he lazes by the pool in Portugal this week.
The Kilkenny man bagged an 88th minute leveller and then revelled in Hugh Douglas' 93rd minute winner as Bray Wanderers came from behind to bag a 3-2 success over promotion rivals Longford Town.
The First Division ever-present has featured at right back, centre half and at the heart of midfield thus far for Gary Cronin and he'll continue to do so once his name is in that starting XI.
"Coming into the squad, I had a chat with Gary and he had signed me as a centre-half but it's a long season and people will pick up knocks and there might be strengths I have that he thinks will be useful in other positions so I just play where I'm put and I'm delighted to be playing for Bray and I want to play every week and thankfully I'm doing that at the moment."
Cantwell's first goal of the season looked to have earned a late draw for the Seagulls but his joy was doubled when Douglas snatched a stoppage time winner and Cantwell believes that a result like this has been overdue for the Co. Wicklow club.
"I asked the referee how long was left (after scoring) and to be honest, I don't even know what he said to me but it felt like there was loads of time left at the end.
"I was delighted to get the equaliser and when you're pushing then and you get another set-piece and you've someone like Hugh Douglas going up for it; you're confident he'll get his head to it and we're just delighted that it hit the back of the net because other weeks, that has gone against us and it's just nice to come out of it on the other end for once.
"To finally take our chances - because I think we create a lot - but taking them is something we've really tried to work on. Even beforehand, Gary wrote on the board 'belief' because it's something that we always do have even if it hasn't always gone to plan. It's nice going into the break with that belief and we'll take it into the second half of the season now."
Bray still sit outside the play-off places despite Friday's late heroics but Cantwell believes a rejuvenated Bray side will begin climbing the table in July when they return to action.
"We'll have a little think about it during the break and come back believing we're a good team and if we keep winning games and can go on a run; then you never know."
