Dennis: My best goal yet

Striker reflects on Shots performance

Kristian Dennis felt his match-winning lob against Aldershot on Tuesday night was his best goal of the campaign.

The striker netted a brace as we came from behind to win 3-1 after Craig Tanner opened the scoring for the visitors and Cal Roberts restored parity.

And, two days before his 30th birthday, he was delighted to find the target with a pinpoint effort

“I’d say this was my best one of the season,” he smiled.

“About five minutes into the game I noticed how far off the line their keeper was so when the ball got played over the top in the second half, I had a quick look to double check.

“I thought I’d hit it too hard so I was glad it dropped in!”

His second was a perfectly-guided header, something he’s not known for.

“I knew Dion Kelly-Evans was going to whip a cross in and I thought I’ll chance it,” Dennis explained.

“I tried to get across the man to the penalty spot and get my head on it.

“It was always going away from the keeper and I was buzzing to see it go in.”

After sitting out at the weekend, Dennis showed exactly what he offers to the side in Tuesdsay’s win and says he has no qualms about Neal Ardley rotating the squad.

“We’re all professional and know we have a job to do,” he added. “If the gaffer says something, I’ll do it to the best that I can.

“Every time I go onto the pitch I want to score and I’ll play wherever. 

“I was on the left of a front three tonight and was getting in at the back stick, which I enjoyed.

“We’ve got to push now and hopefully get a home semi-final in the play-offs.

“We’ve need to keep winning and putting pressure on other teams.”
