‘It’s a proud moment for me and I just can’t get over it, a moment I will always remember. It was a great night for us, we showed the courage and bravery to get back into the game and to get the result we needed.

‘There was a bit of pressure with where we were in the league and where they were so it was big game but we needed to put that behind us and do what we do and to be confident.

‘The ball will get framed now and put in a box but a proud moment for me. I’ve dreamt of it since I was a little boy getting a hat-trick. I’m hungry for goals.’
