Match-winner talks us through an unforgettable match
Instead, the 23-year-old striker was in positive mood, confident that if his chance came to step off the bench against the Shakers, he was going to make an impact.
That confidence was borne out of a lifetime of excellent parental support, as Aiden explains: "When I played for my Dad's team he always used to say to me, 'you're the magician, no one's going to stop you'.
"From when I was young I always told myself I was the magician and going to score goals. It's always stuck with me, my Dad kind of drilled it into my head.
"I always believe when I'm on the bench – no matter how long is left, whatever the score – I always believe in myself."
That self belief was evident on Saturday when Aiden produced a cool-as-you-like clipped finish deep into injury-time to clinch a memorable 3-2 turnaround for The Lions.
And as for the unique celebration, in which Aiden ended up being engulfed by ecstatic Lions fans, he added: "It's all a blur. I was so excited to score that goal that all I was thinking about was jumping the fence and celebrating with the fans.
"They are so passionate and I loved sharing that moment with them. It's one I will never forget."
