Gray: "I Could Have Had More"

17 October 2015

Andre Gray felt he could have had a hat-trick after his double downed local rivals Bolton Wanderers at Turf Moor.

The striker was on hand to open the scoring against the Trotters when Scott Arfield’s ferocious drive was parried into his path by Ben Amos.

And after securing the points on 68 minutes when he latched on to a beautifully-weighted Arfield pass, he reflected on another good win.

He said: “It was great. It was a tough first-half but they sat in and defended quite well. In the end it was a good win.

“I could have had a few more goals but like I always say the three points are the most important thing and we’ve got them.

“Scott was brilliant today. He gets in those little pockets and playing wide he likes to cut inside which helps me and gives me another option for someone to play me in – it paid off again today.

“The keeper probably should have done better with the first but it was coming at him quite quickly to be fair and luckily I was alert to it and was in the right place at the right time.

“For the second, at first I thought he could have played it a bit earlier but in the end it was perfectly timed and he played me straight in.

The Clarets now switch their attentions to a trip to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, before the East Lancashire derby against Blackburn Rovers next Saturday.

Gray added: “We’re in a good position but it’s a long season and we’re not even half way there yet so we’ve got to keep going.

“They don’t come any easier and I’m sure it’ll be another tough test against Forest.”
