Greg Mills insists he doesn’t mind who scores the goals as long as Corby Town are winning matches.
The frontman was the hat-trick hero for the Steelmen on Tuesday night as they claimed a fine 3-2 victory at Stalybridge Celtic - their first win on the road in the Vanarama National League North this season.
Having moved up to 15th in the table after that midweek success, Corby are now preparing for Saturday’s clash with fifth-placed Harrogate Town at Steel Park.
And while he was delighted to score his first-ever senior hat-trick, Mills says he would be quite happy for others to take the glory if it means more wins on the board.
“Obviously the most important thing was to get the win,” he said.
“From a personal point of view, I am very pleased to have scored a hat-trick.
“But the thing we really needed was a win and I don’t care who scores the goals to make that happen.
“It was my first senior hat-trick. I have got two in a game a couple of times but I was desperate to go and get the third and take the matchball home.
“That’s taken me to seven for the season and I hope there are more to come.”
Mills’ match-winning contribution brought with it words of praise from manager Wright.
He said: “Millsy is probably our most influential player. He is certainly our most naturally gifted match-winner.
“He is a great player and if I was ever to take a call from someone from a higher level about him I would tell them the truth.
“He doesn’t shy away and he is one of those players who always wants the ball.
“But he is a lad who thrives on confidence and he should be full of that after he got the matchball.”
