Youngster Tom Nichols couldn't have been more happy with how the game against Accrington Stanley went, given his own performance and the return of three points.
Nichols had us two goals to the good inside 11 minutes of the game, but it was his all action display that really took the plaudits.
Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Nichols said he really relished the physical battle he had with their centre halves, so to get himself on the score sheet as well was really a bonus for him.
'I'm delighted to score a couple of goals, but more important was to win. It was a good feeling, so hopefully we can get a run going.'
His confidence given his tender age of 20 years old cannot be in doubt, as he goes onto say that he knew he'd take his chance when it came along so for him it was about being patient and impressing the gaffer, and he's certainly done that. We are back to the all round game in terms of impressing Tisdale, and the youngster jokes himself.
'It's good fun battling up there when you've got big centre halves that wondering what's going on. I enjoy that just as much as scoring really.'
Being a touch more modest, he also praised the service that he was receiving throughout the game and he'll be hoping that continues so he can continue to impress when next called upon.
The gaffer himself also had words of encouragement for Nichols following that showing, describing him as being like a 'dynamo' during the time he was on the pitch, and for Tisdale you could even take the goals out of it and he'd have still been utterly delighted with his overall performance adding that he held the ball up 'as well as I've seen any centre forward do it'.
There are certainly a fair number of positives that can be taken from the game and whilst Nichols won't be able to replicate that type of performance every time of asking, at least he's showing that the gaffer is right to have faith in him whilst he is still so young and still learning the ropes.
Be interesting to see how he develops and what type of player he can turn into in another 2-3 seasons when he has far ore experience, but that does go for quite a few of our youngsters doesn't it.
