Hunter: I will play anywhere for this team

3 April 2018

Goalscorer Ashley Hunter spoke to the media following Easter Monday's 2-0 victory over Bristol Rovers.

The 22-year-old attacker spoke after Fleetwood Town picked up another three points in their 2-0 home win over Bristol Rovers on Monday. Hunter opened the scoring in the second half with Jordy Hiwula doubling the scoreline late on.

Town now sit 13th in Sky Bet League One, after picking a fourth straight victory.

Here is what the man of the match had to say after the game....

On his wonder strike…

"The ball did fall very nicely for me after Bobby [Grant] passed it across.

"Jordy [Hiwula] did well to leave it to and it really has just set up nicely for me to strike it first time, and luckily it has ended in the top corner.

"I was always going to hit it first time."

On the game…

"I don't think they created many chances against us, and we've proven in recent games how hard we are to break down.

"That is why we now have five clean sheets in a row. We look solid, and we've stopped conceding goals.

On his defensive duties at left wing back…

"Playing at left back / left wing back I don't really mind. For me it is about being on the pitch, playing 90 minutes and getting the three points.

"There are more responsibilities for me to get back, however on the day, I was able to get forward and get a goal.

"At the minute it is about the results, it is not about me but it is about the whole team.

"We need to make sure that this team stays in the division come the end of the season."

On being 13th in the league table…

"It is looking good at the moment but I do think we need a few more points.

"Starting with next week against Rotherham, hopefully we can go there and get the points we need early and secure that safety.

"We need to keep being strong at the back and scoring goals down the other end.

"I don't think we are looking towards the play-offs at the moment, the main goal is to stay up."

On the three games in seven days coming up…

"Next week is going to be tough, starting at a team in the play-off places.

"But if we go there with nothing to fear, along with the fact we have now kept five clean sheets on the spin, we can hopefully get the three points, and the sixth clean sheet."

On the fantastic support from the fans…

"The fans really helped us today, and have done that throughout the season.

"They have stuck with us in the hard times, it hasn't been the best of seasons from what we expected from the start, but it's really helped us with their amazing support."
