Eastwood - I Was Never Going To Miss That

Eastwood - I Was Never Going To Miss That

Striker Freddy Eastwood has joked that he was never not going to score the chance that fell to him in the game against Torquay, and he was just delighted that the strike gave us a return of all three points on the day.

Having come off the bench with the game perched at nil nil, and Torquay manfully keeping us quiet on the day, Eastwood had the desired impact and struck us the winner.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the experienced striker said of his first goal for us since last October.

'The three points was the main thing, and they were a massive three points because we needed to build on the brilliant performance on Monday night. The game against Torquay was much more of a steady performance, but we got that chance. Thankfully it fell to me and I took it. I was never going to miss that!'

Eastwood goes on to say, that with no disrespect meant, this season when we have faced lessor teams and those struggling in their season we haven't had the luck we needed to kill them off in games and ensure all three points, and he even goes as far as to say that you could even strongly argue we haven't produced the quality needed to have earned the right to do that either, so getting the break as we did with Murphy's cross falling to him, he couldn't have been more pleased to have made it count on the day.

The striker hopes it's certainly a sign of things to come for both him as a player but also the team now, because he knows over recent weeks some of the deliveries we have had into the box have been fantastic and it's been a crying shame that nobody has been on the end of it, and it's something that manager Phil Brown has been pointing out time and time again, so he was pleased again to have made that count.

Onwards and upwards again now hopefully.
