Fletch On Bradford City

Last updated : 20 March 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Speaking after the City game on Tuesday evening, during which he put in a talismanic performance, Steve Fletcher was quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "As happy as I am for scoring, I'm a bit disappointed that my man scored their goal. He did me a treat. Even at my age you still learn things and you have to be tight to your man. As many headers as I have won in the past 13 games when I've gone back to defend, I was gutted. I was so happy to see the second goal go in and to come in at 3-1 up. If we'd come in at 1-1, even though I scored our goal, I'd have been gutted because it was my man that scored. It happens in football and happens to the best of players in the Premier League. But it doesn't matter if you play in the Premiership or League Two, if your man scores the goal you've got to hold your hands up. Ryan Garry let me know about it, which was good, because it shows the boys care. I truly believed the hat-trick was on. The way things were going in the second half, I was in the zone and thought that the hat-trick was definitely going to happen. I just had a feeling - it was one of those games".
