Mignolet: Nature of win will give extra boost to the team.


Big bonus to seal the win within 90 minutes, admits Liverpool's No.1 goalkeeper.

Simon Mignolet is convinced the way Liverpool came from behind to secure a late win over Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday night can give the team more confidence for their upcoming fixtures.

It was looking like Brendan Rodgers' side were heading for the exit in the FA Cup when Eidur Gudjonsen's penalty found the net. Bolton went down to 10 men after Neil Dann was sent off for a second bookable offence but the home-side battled hard to secure the lead.

It was in the 85th minute Raheem Sterling equalised for Liverpool after Emre Can’s sublime pass found the England international, and five minutes later Philippe Coutinho made it 2-1 with a wonder strike.

"When you win in the last five minutes of the game, it does your confidence the world of good," Mignolet Liverpool's official website following the fourth round triumph.

"Maybe later on we can look at those last five minutes and think that they were very, very important. Everybody's pleased we're still in it because that's the main thing. We want to progress in the cup and go on to get silverware this season.

"We responded well and showed great character to get through and get two goals before the end of the 90 minutes," continued Mignolet.

"We're into the next round and now we can think about the league game [against Everton].

"It was a big bonus to get through in the 90 minutes because those extra 30 minutes would have been a pity. But we got through and that's the main thing and we can look forward to the next round against Crystal Palace."
