Porter hopes for chance

11 Oct 2007 - 11:52:33

Hartlepool United striker Joel Porter hopes his midweek goal heroics will earn him place in the next starting line-up.

The 28-year-old has started just one match this season, but came off the bench to fire a hat-trick during Tuesday's 5-2 Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory at Lincoln City.

"It's hard sometimes because we all want to be playing in the first team every week," he told the Hartlepool Mail.

"But I was given a chance and hopefully I've taken it and given the manager something to think about.

"The boys played well and I was lucky enough to be there to get three goals.

"I was delighted with the outcome. I started on the bench, but the gaffer had thoughts of what he was going to do and put me on early.

"That was my first hat-trick for Hartlepool, it's been a long time in coming but I was delighted with it. One in the league would be nice now."
