Andrew Danylyszyn says Tyrell Waite’s two goals against Stourbridge are more than the reward he deserves for his contribution so far this season.
Waite had only scored twice this season before his brace against the Glassboys.
The winger is one of only a handful of players still at Tamworth since Danylyszyn and Gary Smith replaced Dennis Greene – and the joint manager says it’s easy to see why.
“One thing about Tyrell Waite is that he gives everything in training and in games,” Danylyszyn said.
“He buys in to the philosophy we have here and also into the management and the team. You know you’re going to get that all the time and sometimes that’s all you can ask for.
“Everyone won’t play well all of the time, but he’s been consistent and integral to us this season because he gets it and understands how we play.
“He’s been creating space for others and doing a lot of the unselfish stuff. He’s scored some goals in the FA Cup but for him to get two tonight is the reward he deserves because he’s been chipping away and working really hard.
“I’m happy for Tyrell but the boys will be even happier for him to get those goals for many reasons. He needed that for his league tally.”
Waite comes up against one of his former clubs this weekend as Notts County head to The Lamb in the FA Cup.
Then County boss Keith Curle gave Waite his senior debut in 2012.
Danylysyzn says the message is simple for Waite and the rest of the team if they want to cause an upset.
“The message is belief,” he said.
“The lads have been really professional in the two games they’ve played since knowing about this tie because it’s easy to get side-tracked by it.
“I’ve got belief in the players to make sure we prepare properly and that we treat it like we would any other game.
“We’ve got some really good players and if we prepare properly, who knows? Notts County are a really good side but we’re a good side as well so it’s all about the lads keeping grounded and sticking to their strengths.”
