Hunt: "Both Sides Are There On Merit So It Should Be A Great Game"

3 October 2019

Nicky Hunt has played in some massive games in his career especially in the top flight with Bolton Wanderers, but he is still missing a promotion from his CV.

It would be a fitting climax to his long career if Hunty could enjoy a promotion winning season before he eventually retires.

The veteran defender, 36, is looking forward to our top of the table clash against Exeter this weekend but stresses that there is still a long way to go regardless of the result this Saturday.

Hunt, who has played over 430 first class games, says that these types of encounters are what you are in the game for as a player.

Nicky told the club’s official website: “There is still a long way to go in the season but it is a chance for us to go top of the league.

“If we could get a result on Saturday against Exeter then it would be a real stamp on what we are looking to achieve this season.

“There is no point talking about promotion or play-offs because we are only 11 games in. We have to see where we are after 46 games and that is how we are approaching things. Only time will tell but we are on a good run at the minute and so are Exeter, so it has all the hallmarks of being a really good game.

“There are three points up for grabs and if we do win, we will go top which will be great for the lads, the club and the fans, but anything can happen.

“After we cross that white line on Saturday then it is down to us but we should be pleased with way we are at the moment because we are there on merit.”
