TOWN boss Paul Hurst thought that his side deserved the 3-1 victory at The Hive this afternoon. He was talking after seeing the Mariners score twice in the final minutes to secure a dramatic victory over league leaders Barnet.
"It's a nice win but I've said before if we lost here we're still alright, but it's always nice to get a victory," he said.
"Overall I think today we deserved the victory. Second-half was very different to the first, but overall I thought the lads were excellent.
"I said to the players that I didn't want to be stood talking about another good performance but not taking the victory.
"Late into the game we were obviously at that point, and a point again wouldn't have been a disaster, but I felt that our performance overall deserved to take all three points. "
And the gaffer was full of praise for the 969 Town fans who had made the journey to the Hive. He said: "Just under a thousand. They were superb. They've brought their inflatables - some more interesting. We said that we want to be involved in big games and we are."
