After Chesterfield’s 4-0 victory at home to Ebbsfleet United, hat-trick hero Nathan Tyson spoke to the press about what the win meant to the team.
He said: “To be honest the most important thing was us getting the three points. It brings our goal difference further down and we kept a clean sheet as well.
“Two wins on the bounce as well. Everything is looking very positive at the moment.
“I’d like to think we have a lot more about us in the squad and in the coaching staff with the urgency and the way we train.
“The way that we are playing now could really push us up the league. I’d like to see that we could finish as high as we possibly can and that means performances like that.
“There’s a lot of character in that changing room. We have to look to the future now.”
Tyson came off the bench and scored three goals in a blistering 23-minute spell, making history in the process by becoming the first-ever Chesterfield player to score a hat-trick after coming off the bench.
The striker recounted his goals, by saying: “[The first goal] was really weird. I think it came of Dents (Tom Denton) and I’m just looking to set someone. The defender let me turn and I didn’t feel him, and I thought, ‘I’m going to turn and shoot here’. It’s then gone in the top corner.
“The second was from a header. I have to thank Robbie [Weir] because he was saying to me, ‘Don’t go on the keeper, I’ll go on the keeper. You go and win it’. I think Robbie’s claiming the assist for that one.
“The third I thought, ‘I’m just going to have to run this’. I tried to get it on my right foot to get a perfect hat-trick.
“I’m just grateful that I got the opportunity to put the ball in the back of the net and make an impact.”
Upon hearing that he had made history, the 37-year-old talked about what it means to go into the Chesterfield FC history books.
“I’m very grateful for that. I like a record. I played with Jack Lester and I see pictures of him everywhere seeing how much of a legend he is. It’s an honour to say that I played with someone like him,” Tyson said.
