Video & Quotes from hat-trick hero Guthrie...

  • Guthrie on a good day's work...

"It is nice to get off the mark first and foremost. These games are a lose-lose almost because if you don’t win, you are expected to win. If you do well, people will say you should have done well anyway, so it is always nice to get off to a good start in the group.

"It counts as a senior hat-trick. I said they were coming (goals) and they all came at once, so I do not mind that."

  • Guthrie on a professional performance...

"I think they used to playing more tiki-taka football in the class that they play in and I think they are more focused on the technical side.

"From a senior point of view, if you apply yourselves right and go in with the right attitude, you make it easier for yourself.

"Like I said, we had a few young boys playing tonight and I thought they were top draw. They showed that they should be playing in men’s football week in, week out.

"I think it gives everyone a little boost, the boys who haven’t really played that much have got some minutes in and for myself it was nice to come on, stretch my legs and get a couple of goals."

  • Guthrie on the will to go all the way...

"I think that is the carrot at the end - a day out and Wembley which is nice for everybody, for our families and especially for the club as well. It gives the fans something to be excited about.

"As I said, I think our main focus is on the league and trying to do well in that and if we can progress in this I think it would be a massive bonus."
