Lee Vaughan was delighted to pick up three points in Harriers’ final away trip of the league season against North Ferriby United on Saturday.
The right back gave his thoughts after the match, and was satisfied with the manner of the victory on a bobbly pitch.
“It was a professional performance on a difficult surface,” said Vaughan.
“We’ve been criticised in the past for not adapting and only having one way of playing, but we’ve shown [on Saturday] that we can adapt and play a different way.
“The gaffer reminded us that [North Ferriby] got a draw against Salford City recently, and that they’ve got nothing to fear so by no means was it an easy game”.
Harriers took the lead through George Waring, before Vaughan crossed to supply Joe Ironside with the ammunition to double the lead.
Vaughan was pleased to provide his first assist for Harriers’ top scorer, an assist which has been in the pipeline for some time.
“Me and Joe have been saying for quite a while that he needs to get on the end of one of my crosses!”, admitted Vaughan.
“I’m hoping now that we’ve done that today, there will be more to come and I can get that connection with Joe as he’s a great player who deserves a lot of credit for what he does off the ball as well as on it”.
“I’m 30 years old and still looking for my mum!…” Lee Vaughan
Vaughan himself got in on the goal scoring act with a second half finish following a flick on from Waring.
Around 100 Harriers fans were in attendance, amongst them was Vaughan’s mum, and the full back instantly went to celebrate with her upon seeing the ball hit the back of the net.
“A lot of credit has to go to George as I’ve given him a shout and he’s won the header absolutely brilliantly,” added Vaughan.
“I just wanted get a good connection especially with the pitch being difficult.
“The way that the Harriers fans travel is great, they’re absolutely brilliant fans.
“We really, really appreciate [the travelling fans] and it spurs us on.
“You can’t underestimate how much those travelling fans help us.
“Luckily my mum was behind the goal so I got a little cuddle from her, I’m 30 years old and still looking for my mum!”.
