STRIKER James Collins was left to reflect on one of the finest moments of his career so far after scoring three goals at Premier League Stoke City on Tuesday night.
The summer signing scored two in the first half before firing a winner in the final minute in the second period of extra-time.
Holding the matchball pitchside after the game, he offered his views to the waiting media on a memorable night.
He said: “I am really pleased with the result and it’s great to have scored a hat-trick.
“It’s one of the highlights of my career, scoring three at a Premier League ground.
“We have been working hard in training and it was good for the header to come off.
“We had a lot of chances and could have won by a few more especially with the opportunities we had in the first half. Now we can enjoy the moment. It was a great game and a tremendous team effort.”
