“I was so pleased for Jadon,” Carrick admitted to club media. “I thought he worked his socks off tonight, I thought he gave everything tonight.
“At times, it wasn’t always with the ball and I know how much he enjoys the ball at his feet and trying to make things happen. He showed a different side tonight and, to get his goal at the end, pretty much capped it off perfectly for him and for us.”
Speaking to BT Sport, the caretaker manager added: “To finish it off with Jadon was brilliant. Defensively, he put in a real effort and worked hard for us when we needed him to. It was a big night for him.”
