Gash: It was a team effort
5:54pm Saturday 16th March 2013 in News
DOUBLE hero Michael Gash hailed Harriers' all-round team performance after beating Tamworth 4-1.
The Aggborough outfit had came from behind thanks to goals for Keith Briggs and Danny Pilkington.
But Gash marked his home debut with a second half headed brace, making it three goals in two starts.
The 26-year-old joined Harriers on-loan from Cambridge United and has scored 18 goals this season.
He said: "I did not come here expecting to play, I knew I had to prove myself to get into the team.
"Unfortunately Greg Pearson could not play against Grimsby so I had my chance and scored.
"I was in the starting 11 today and to pick up another two goals and help the team with another three points was fantastic.
"I am here to score goals but you've got to look at the whole team, from what they do from start to finish, from goalkeeper to all the way up front and it's fantastic."
Victory means Harriers are third in the Blue Square Bet Premier but just three points behind leaders Mansfield.
Harriers were made to work hard by the Lambs, who opened the scoring in the fifth minute before the Reds roared back emphatically.
"Tamworth made it hard for us, it was stop-start and they were looking for throw ins and set pieces to get the ball in the box," added the striker.
"It was unfortunate to go behind early on but after the first half an hour, which was quite scrappy, we didn't want it to end because we were on top and had scored two goals.
"We took that into the second half and it was a comfortable win in the end."
Harriers will be tackling top five rivals Newport County away on Tuesday (7.45pm ko).
