Cox: Records are there to be broken

1 April 2013

Manager Paul Cox insists that records are there to be broken, following today’s fantastic 4-0 home hammering of Gateshead at One Call Stadium.

Our magnificent side won their 12th match in succession to equal the Football Conference record for successive wins, which was set by Hereford United in the 2003/04 campaign.

Anthony Howell grabbed the opener midway through the first period, whilst Louis Briscoe, Matt Green and Ben Hutchinson were also on the scoresheet.

“Gateshead were dogged and resolute and we probably scored at the right time if I’m being honest, because there was a bit of anxiety about us today,” said our boss.

“But the lads worked hard again and put in a real shift. They deserved to get the three points and are working extremely hard to get three points.

“In the final third, sometimes we looked a little bit off-key in our decision making. I’m not going to complain though, because the lads put in a real shift and deserved to get the win.

“The only thing what will please me more [than equalling the Football Conference consecutive wins record] is getting a good result in our next game. 

“Records are there to be broken and I think all credit must go to the lads.

“We seem to be scoring from all different positions around the pitch at the minute. I like to focus on what’s head of us, so it’s just about enjoying [the run in].

Our next game is at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground on Thursday (kick-off 7.45pm).
