Plymouth Argyle boss Ian Holloway was full of praise for youngster Scott Sinclair.
Plymouth Argyle boss Ian Holloway was basking in the glory of Scott Sinclair's stunning winner following Saturday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The on-loan Chelsea teenager ended The Pilgrims' five-game winless streak with a run and finish from inside his own half, echoing his FA Cup strike against Barnet earlier in the season.
Holloway admitted he was delighted with the young forward and urged his side to make sure they will be in contention for a play-off place come the end of the campaign.
"It is wonderful to see that young fellow wriggle out from the back. It left him open and he scored one of the best goals I have seen in a long time," said Holloway.
"It cannot be a fluke because he did it at Barnet and it's just wonderful to see a fellow run with the ball like that.
"It takes a special goal to win a Championship match and that was one but I was also delighted we kept a clean sheet as well.
"We have got eight games now and I am asking my players, 'Can we win all of them?'
"Why not? Aim at the stars sometimes you hit the moon and that's what I am after."
Plymouth are 12 points shy of the play-offs, and despite their defeat Palace are three points better off.
Eagles boss Peter Taylor is still hopeful his side can mount a late charge and break into the top six in the Championship.
"We have got seven matches to go. We have got to play four of the teams that are above us, three at home and one of them away, so it's still a little bit in our hands," said Taylor.
"But we cannot afford to slip up again and we could have done with something today."
