Lee Gregory was in no doubt that the 4-0 victory over Barnet was the best away performance of the season and was full of praise for his team mates when he spoke to Shaymen Player after the game.
“We were unbelievable. The lads were firing on all cylinders and in the first ten minutes I don’t think they (Barnet) knew what had hit them so credit to the lads today.”
The Shaymen talisman, who scored the second of the four goals, admitted that he had no idea that the margin of victory could have been as resounding as it was.
“To be honest we would have taken a 1-0 before the game, but as soon as we started we knew we were going to beat them because the game was so open. I had a few chances myself and missed them, but sometimes it goes like that. (Scott) Spencer has come in and done well.”
Gregory’s goal brought up his century in Town colours, but was keen to play the landmark down.
“I was disappointed with the chances that I missed to be honest, yes I scored my 100th goal but I’m not really bothered about that because personally I’m a little bit disappointed with my own performance today, but you can’t score every goal, but then again on the bright side I have got 100 goals.”
284 of the Shaymen faithful made the trip down to The Hive and Gregory was quick to show his appreciation for the fantastic support and amount of noise they made behind the goal.
“Yes it is class for them, especially for the ones that have come all this way. They’ve followed us all the way, all season and the fans make it so much easier, so much better for us to play away. Especially when they come all this way, it’s a long trip, so to get a 4-0 win today for the fans who were class again.”
After results went Town’s way in midweek, Neil Aspin’s side know that their play-off destiny is in their own hands, but Gregory insists that the players will not be getting ahead of themselves until the job is done.
“We just need to take it one game at a time. We’ve got a massive game on Tuesday at Grimsby, so we need to get three points there, obviously like today.”
The victory over Martin Allen’s side continued a remarkable run of form for The Shaymen, but Gregory still wouldn’t be drawn on whether the run could continue until the end of the season. “I’m not going to say anything like that because I don’t want to jinx it but we’re playing so well, what is it? 8 or 9 games unbeaten? Let’s just keep that going and hopefully we can get into the play-offs.”
Victory against Grimsby on Tuesday night could see The Shaymen overtake The Mariners in the Skrill Premier, so if you are unable to make the journey to Blundell Park be sure to show your support by getting involved on the club’s official Twitter feed @FCHTonline or on the updates via the official website.
