Alan delighted to grab first goal for Club and end Town's Cup woe at same time

Alan Judge hopes there will be many more to come after getting his first goal for Town in last night’s dramatic FA Cup win at Lincoln.

The replay looked destined to go to extra-time but with only seconds left, the Republic of Ireland international grabbed Blues victory and a second round tie with Coventry.

“It’s been a while coming and it’s something I have thought about, not scoring because I’ve got goals in the past,” Alan told the Club website.

“It was great to see it go in and obviously it was the perfect time as well because it won us the game.

“I’ve had chances and hit the woodwork a few times but now I’ve got my first, hopefully there will be many more to come.”

The goal also gave Town a first win in the competition since January 2010 and that is another record the midfielder was happy to see ended.

“It’s nice to get that out of the way now," he added. "It’s good for the Club that we’re in the next round and we will see what happens at Coventry. The focus now though is on Saturday.”
