ATTACKING midfielder Jordan Nicholson said that his side were ‘hungry’ for three points after they came from behind to beat Gateshead 2-1.

The 25-year-old netted a 66th minute equaliser before capitalising on a defensive error to create the injury time Tommy O’Sullivan winner.

Nicholson said: “It was a great game, the atmosphere helped us throughout and I’m just happy that we got the win.

“It’s a massive result obviously off the back of Boston and Guiseley, we know what we’re capable of and we showed that tonight.

“We were unfortunate to concede the way we did with it going in off the back of Brandon (Hall), but our fight and determination was good and we deserved the win.

“Throughout we knew that we wanted the three points, we were hungry for it and I thought we pushed well to get it right at the end.

Speaking about the winning goal, Nicholson said: “I thought that it bounced pretty well and I thought that he (the goalkeeper) was going to come and clatter me to be fair.

“I was looking to get it away from him, but I took my touch outside and Tommy (O’Sullivan) was there to sit on the edge and finish it nicely.

Nicholson only played 14 minutes against Guiseley on Saturday but seized his opportunity of a starting place against Gateshead.

He added: “The look and the depth of the squad, and everybody is fighting for their place and I’m just happy to get my chance tonight and take it.

 “It’s a great group of lads and we’re always pushing each other on and we’re just looking for the bigger picture.

“We’re always learning in the training ground and watching over our clips and learning from our mistakes and we definitely did that tonight.

 “The way we set up tonight was the gaffers shape and it worked in the end so we’re happy to get the three points.

“He likes get players forward with aggressive play and we showed that tonight. I thought we were excellent all over the pitch and it was a good result.

“The gaffer has only been in a couple of weeks now, we’re learning styles of play, patterns of play and how he wants us to play so it’s just about gelling together and putting that on the pitch.

“I like to play in pockets and get on the half-turn, I think that’s my game and I showed that tonight.”
