Noel Hunt: It's great to keep scoring but the team winning games comes first

5 September 2015

Striker pleased to make it two goals in two games for the Blues.

Southend United striker Noel Hunt was delighted to continue his goalscoring form, but admitted the team winning against Peterborough United on Saturday was the main priority.

The Irishman made it two goals in as many games for Blues as his second half header earned the spoils for Blues.

And the 32-year-old was pleased to see the side creating and taking their chances against the Posh.

“It's good we're making chances and getting on the end of things now,” the forward said after the game.

“We have a real good chance to be up there if we can get a good run and get our home form going.

“Myself and Moons [David Mooney] are forming a good partnership and we both could have taken the matchball home to be honest!

“Over the weeks those good chances will become great chances when the sharpness comes back fully. It's about getting refreshed and getting that partnership going even better.

“I thought Moons was great today and deserved a goal. I haven't played in seven months before coming here and I'm getting sharper and fitter with every game.”

And Hunt wants Blues to keep up the good work now, having gone three games unbeaten in the division ahead of next week's home game against Shrewsbury Town at Roots Hall.

“We've performed really well in these early games and have been unlucky,” he said.

“Today we deserved the win and we need to take it to Shrewsbury Town next week here at home.

“The main thing was the win no matter how that came. We would have taken a 1-0 with a scruffy goal but we're better than that and we need to keep on improving and getting stronger.

“The goalkeeper pulled off a few good stops today and eventually I got my goal and we've won so we all go home happy.”
