Striker looked lively up-front alongside David Ball

Fleetwood Town striker Jamie Proctor revealed his delight upon netting in the Cod Army’s 4-0 victory over Yeovil Town on Easter Monday.

The 23-year-old was on the score-sheet in Fleetwood’s emphatic victory over the Glovers, with David Ball netting a brace, and Ash Hunter also finding the net, as Town sit eighth in the third-tier.

And Proctor, who registered his seventh of the campaign, was quick to hand praise to his fellow team-mates, following the win over the Somerset outfit, a result which sees Town maintain their unbeaten record up to four games.

In an interview with the Club Website, Proctor stated: “We said that we had to start well, knowing the situation that they were in, they came out fighting and tried to put us on the back foot.

“We started well, had a few chances, and got the three goals in the first half, which set the tone nicely, and it was a professional performance.

“They put a lot of pressure on us in the second-half, put us under pressure, but after the 15 minutes or the second half and we stuck to our jobs and did really well.

“There was a little bit of a funny atmosphere, people expected us to win, any games in this division can turn you over, there are little fine margins between the teams in League One, we dealt with it well and we’re very professional.”

Proctor then paid tribute to his fellow strike partner, David Ball, who continued his fine form by scoring twice in the win, which took Fleetwood’s number 23 to a goal tally of seven for the season.

“It has been a long time since me and David have played together up-front, so it is nice to play with Bally, as he is a different kind of player to me, so I’m pleased for him to get a couple of goals again, and personally for me it is nice
to get on the score-sheet.

“It has been a tight season and I think it will be right up until the end of the season,  so we need to put the pressure on a couple of the teams above us.”
