Striker Lee Gregory has said he feels his strikes against Port Vale last weekend made up for the misses in the Oxford match.

Following on from the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final first leg defeat to Oxford United last Thursday, Gregory said that manager Neil Harris had told him to forget about the misses he had in that game and just focus on playing his natural role when we faced Port Vale at the weekend.

With a three one victory and a brace for the former non league player, Gregory knows he did just that but speaking to the official site he did admit there was an element of making up for the chances wasted.

Having grabbed his 12th and 13th goals for the club this year on Sunday, Gregory was obviously hungry for more and wanted to play his part in helping to fire us to promotion this year if possible.

‘It was a massive win for us against Port Vale and keeps us a point behind the Play-Offs. I was very happy with the goal. I don’t normally score many with my head. I was also glad to score two goals as well because I think I owed it after the ones I missed on Thursday night. Hopefully I can take that into Chesterfield this Saturday.’

Following the Oxford defeat, he went on to say a few words of wisdom from our gaffer helped.

‘The Gaffer spoke to me before Sunday’s game and said forget about the chances that I had missed on Thursday; he said that good strikers score one in four and that I had missed three on Thursday, so make sure I scored the next one! He is confident all the time that I am going to do well and it is good to have that backing.’

Looking more to Chesterfield this weekend and a first ever visit to the Proact Stadium, Gregory wanted a similar start to Port Vale and hopefully a similar result.

‘At Chesterfield we need to start like we did on Sunday and hopefully get a result. There is still a long way to go this season and you never can tell. We have 20 games remaining and a lot of points to play for so hopefully we can get further up the table.’
