Joint top-scorer Jordan Burrow is hungry for a hat-trick after being denied the chance of a second career treble last weekend by York City boss Sam Collins, say York Press.
Burrow struck twice in six second-half minutes during the 3-0 FA Cup third qualifying round victory over St Ives Town, but was replaced immediately after his second effort with Collins keen to rest his four-goal forward, while giving game time to subs Alex Kempster and Jon Parkin.
That meant the 26-year-old forward missed out on adding to his three-goal haul for Gateshead during a 3-3 FA Trophy draw with Boreham Wood last term – when he completed his hat-trick in 15 second-half minutes after coming on as a substitute himself.
Collins joked that Burrow gave him a “dirty look” after the fourth official had held up his number and the Sheffield-born attacker said: “He was laughing a bit with me and I wanted to stay on because I’d just scored two goals in six minutes and I was full of confidence looking to get my hat-trick.
“That would have been nice, because it would have been my first one for York, but that will have to wait and, hopefully, it will come sooner rather than later.
“I’ve scored one before and, hopefully, I can get a few more.”
