Hakan Hayrettin said Scunthorpe boss Tony Daws was deluded after reading comments from his opposite number following Maidstone’s victory.
The Stones moved above the Iron and out of the National League bottom four with a 2-0 success at Glanford Park on Saturday.
Scunthorpe caretaker boss Daws claimed they should have been “out of sight” and were “controlling the game”, pointing to 10 shots for his side and four from the Stones.
Hayrettin wasn’t buying that after goals from Jack Barham and Roarie Deacon earned a first win in 13 league games.
“I’ve read what their manager said - he’s deluded,” said the Stones boss.
“I think he must have had a bottle of scotch before the game. I’m not sure what game he was watching. Ten shots to four? I don't think so.”
Maidstone enjoyed the moment after ending their two-and-a-half-month wait for a victory.
On a ground where the club had been due to start the 1992/93 Football League Division 4 season before going bust, they were good value for the points.
The winless run has been hard for everybody but Maidstone got their rewards with victory over a Scunthorpe side struggling to adapt to non-league following relegation.
“I know the job and I know the rules and I know what it takes,” said Hayrettin.
“Sometimes I get frustrated but I also know bad moments are going to happen and you’ve got to weather the storm.
“This was one of those days when everything just clicked.
“It was a good, battling Maidstone performance.
“I’m absolutely chuffed to bits for the boys.
“On another day it could have been different but I thought we deserved it today.
“We made the substitutions at the right time and I thought we were better than them in most areas.
“It’s been possibly my toughest time in management, because the expectations are so high.
“But I know the job and I know what it requires. It doesn’t faze me. Nothing fazes me, and I will give everything I can to make sure I don’t shirk my responsibilities.
“But what’s important is the boys get some credit today. That’s what I want. Forget about me.
“Now, we need to build on this and take it to the next level.
“We’ve got a big game against Oldham next week that we can win. If we play like that, we can win.
“I said at the start of the season this is an extension of the Football League. It isn’t the National League of old.
“I also said I wanted everyone to enjoy it. That’s what I want. Let’s enjoy it, let’s do the right things and let’s stay in this division. We know we can do it.”
