Hylton Feels Fleetwood Draw Could Be Turning Point In Town's Season

19 December 2016

Jermaine Hylton felt Town could count themselves unfortunate not to collect all three points on Saturday but was hugely encouraged by the display put on by his team-mates.

The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Fleetwood Town at SN1 after David Ball cancelled out Luke Norris’ early opener.

Town controlled proceedings in the second-half and had chances to win the game but, despite not claiming the win, Hylton feels the performance could be the spark needed to breathe new life into the Robins' season.

“We were definitely unlucky not to get all three points,” he told

“I thought we played really well and I felt like we turned it up a notch in the second-half and we were unlucky not to take all the points, but Fleetwood are doing well and it is a good point.

“As we start to get a little run going shots will tend to hit off something and go in and you tend to have that little bit of added luck.

“Now could be the turning point.”

Hylton scooped the Man of the Match Award on Saturday after producing a superb performance and the forward is hoping that’s only the start.

“It is always difficult when you are in and around the squad and struggling to find form, so just to get back in there and feeling like you are contributing to the team is a good feeling – I enjoyed it,” he added.

“I’ve just got to maintain that level of performance now and now is the time to start scoring and creating as many goals as possible, whether it’s through winning penalties like I did against Fleetwood, just scoring them or making assists - I just need to be involved in as many goals as possible.”

Town now face two games on the road over the festive period against Millwall and MK Dons respectively, but Hylton is confident that his side have what it takes to secure maximum points from those fixtures.

“We need to be looking at every game with the view that all three points are up for grabs but these two games for sure would be great to go and take all six points going into the New Year,” he continued.

“We need to push on.”
