'I should have scored more' says Chris Lloyd after netting twice in Bromsgrove Sporting's 4-0 win at Stafford Town

GOALSCORER Chris Lloyd says he should have scored more despite netting twice in Bromsgrove Sporting’s 4-0 win at Stafford Town.

Lloyd opened the scoring yesterday (Saturday) after seven minutes with a lovely curling effort into the far corner before grabbing his second 11 minutes later when he tapped home from close range after Jason Cowley’s volley crashed against the bar.

But the Sporting winger could have scored more when minutes later he saw two headers go over the bar in quick succession before rattling the post in the second half after rounding Town keeper Josh Moreton.

Substitute Alfie Bloomer and an own-goal from Tom Wright completed the scoring for the Midland League Division One leaders who are now just two wins away from securing promotion.

“We played on a 3G pitch earlier in the season at Chelmsley Town and we struggled but once we got that early goal we were completely on top for the whole game,” Lloyd said.

“We got the ball wide, had runners from midfield and we should have scored more than four in the end and I probably should have scored two more myself.

“But it’s nice to get on the scoresheet and lately I think I have contributed with plenty of goals and assists so I’m happy with my own performance and the team are happy with the overall performance as well.”

Sporting now travel to third placed Leicester Road on Tuesday night but Lloyd is hoping to see more of their Hinckley-based rivals after watching them ‘park the bus’ in the 1-0 victory at the Victoria Ground earlier in the season.

Robbie Bunn’s 47th-minute strike ensured the Rouslers came away with all three points on that day.

“It’s a massive game for us and we would love to win on Tuesday so we can win the league in front of our own fans on Saturday against Studley,” he added.

“I was a little bit disappointed with Leicester Road when they came to our place because they parked the bus.

“I’m expecting a bit more from them this time but I think with the way we are playing all the lads want to go through the season unbeaten.

“If we go up there and play like we know we can then we will come away with the points comfortably.”
