Yeovil Town's right-back Craig Alcock spoke to local journalist Brendon Mitchell in an interview for BBC Somerset on April 30th 2011 after he scored the opener in the 4-2 win over Colchester United.

BM: Craig that was some finish wasn't it? Left-footed - you must have enjoyed that one.

CA: Yes, it was nice. I've been learning that one off Jon Obika in training, so it was nice, and about time as well! It was good.

BM: It started the flourish of goals as well. You must be so pleased to get four today and finish at Huish Park with a win.

CA: Yes, it was important. We set ourselves a target earlier on in the season. We wanted to go the rest of the season unbeaten at home and we've achieved that. Like you say, it was nice today that we put on a performance for the fans and hopefully they went away happy.

BM: It was nice to come into these games without the pressure of a relegation battle as well. You must have been able to just go out there and enjoy playing, rather than worrying about the pressure that goes with fighting against the drop?

CA: Yes, today had it's own added pressure in terms of your own individual performance and the performance as a team. But yes, it was nice. Obviously the gaffer just let us go out there and play with freedom and enjoy it really, which I think that most of us did.

BM: You got off to a flyer with your goal, and during the first half an hour you were on top as if you could make it any scoreline you wanted to be.

CA: Yes, I think that was what we were cautious of in the build-up to the game - making sure that although it was a game where there was nothing at stake, that at the same time we still started with a tempo and created early pressure.

BM: You conceded the two goals as well. Were you a little bit disappointed to concede those two, especially as a defender, although I suppose you were going forward as much as defending today, weren't you?

CA: Yes, it's always disappointing from a defensive point of view. For Hendo (Stephen Henderson) he must get frustrated, because he pulled off some absolute world class saves at times, but obviously one or two went in. But at least the result was positive for us, so that's the main thing.

BM: And a good win to finish here as well and there was a good atmosphere around the place today. It must have been good to give the home fans something to go home and enjoy over the summer.

CA: Yes, it was good, and like you've said, a nice day - nice weather and thankfully a nice result.

BM: Going into the summer now - are you looking forward to the break? You've still got that one long trip (to Carlisle) coming up, but are you looking forward to the summer?

CA: Yes, very much so, and a well-earned rest. So it will be nice, although I'm in a slightly different boat to nearly everybody else in that I've only played half the season. But yes, it's just nice to look forward to the end.
