Proctor: We showed different qualities to win the game

25 October 2015

Striker netted his second goal in three games

Matchwinner Jamie Proctor netted the decisive goal in Town’s victory away at Barnsley on Saturday afternoon.

The Cod Army frontman scored after 29 minutes at Oakwell, and it was a strike which was enough to see Steven Pressley’s side pick-up maximum points against the Tykes.

His first half effort meant it was his second goal in three games, having netted the opening goal against Burton Albion the previous weekend.

Proctor said: “I’m delighted with the goal, and especially delighted with the three points. It was a big one for us.

“Barnsley have been on a bit of a bad run themselves at the minute, so I think coming here was always going to be a tough game.

“They’ve got a big crowd and are a big club, so for us to come and play the way we did especially in the first-half and dig in in the second-half was great.

“You saw the quality in the team on the ball in the first-half, as we were creating chances and doing what we like to do.

“Then in the second half we showed qualities that maybe the fans don’t like to see because it doesn’t always look good.

“It’s the quality that will win you the game, and I think those things are what won us the game. I think them qualities over the stuff we showed in the first-half are definitely why we came away with the three points.”

Proctor’s goal came from a mistake in the middle of the park, and the former Preston man broke forward before slotting past Nick Townsend.

“We spoke about pressing them and we did so early on, they made a few mistakes and you always got that feeling that we were going to get in off one of their chances.

“It came from the middle of the park and I’ve just drove through and it’s a relief to see it go in the back of the net.

“It’s always nice to get goals in quick succession, but as long as I’m contributing to the team in all the other ways as well I’ll be happy.”
