MANLY Allambie coach Kyle Cannon hailed the fighting spirit from his team after their 3-2 win over Seaforth on Sunday afternoon.
Ellen Wheatley finished with a brace, while Cassie Rodgers was also on target.
“It was a vital result for us, we stay in the top four and can look to keep building,” Cannon said.
“We showed a fair bit of character, coming from 2-1 down at halftime.
