Lee getting back into the groove

Lee Gregory is looking forward to extending his run in the Town side when they go to Hinckley United on Saturday.

The striker bagged his second goal in three games against Workington Reds at the Shay last weekend.

And, after having pre-season disrupted by injury and opening the campaign on the sidelines, he is feeling stronger and stronger with each outing.

He had his best game of the season so far against the Cumbrians, winning the penalty from which Tom Baker put the Shaymen in front in addition to bagging the equaliser.

“I was looking strong in pre-season before I was struck down by injury,” he said. “Now I have had a few games under my belt I am feeling fitter and sharper.

“I felt I did well in the first half against Workington but I blew a gasket in the second half because I started to feel tired.

“I want to get on the ball and I feel a lot fitter and quicker.

“I suppose I put too much weight on when I was injured, but that was because I couldn’t do the running.”

Gregory will go in search of his first away goal at Hinckley, but he say he will be happy if he is still waiting after 90 minutes as long as he contributes to a winning cause.

“Every striker needs to score goals for confidence,” he said. “That’s obvious.

“But as long as we win and I am playing well I really don’t mind who scores the goals.”

Saturday’s game in Leicestershire is certainly winnable as Hinckley have made a sluggish start to the campaign.

Town are unbeaten in their last six and feeling confident after bagging three goals against Workington.

“We just need to keep building,” he said. “It is six unbeaten and while four of them are draws we have to keep moving on.

“Once we got the second goal on Saturday we felt a bit more comfortable and started playing the ball round a bit.

“Luckily enough we got a third so we did a lot better.”
