Wycombe Wanderers left-back Joe Jacobson has been speaking to the Bucks Free Press about his hat-trick against Lincoln City at the weekend, which raised the eyebrows of many people.
Wycombe Wanderers left-back Joe Jacobson scored all three goals in the Chairboys’ 3-1 win over fellow League One strong starters Lincoln City in one of the more unusual hat-tricks that will be scored this season.
Jacobson opened the scoring with a free-kick before his corner snuck in at the near post just over 30 minutes later. The left-back then scored from another corner, floating the ball in over the top of Josh Vickers to seal his first career hat-trick. Now, speaking about his treble, Jacobson said:
“It is strange. I have never scored a brace before, let alone three goals in a game. It was pretty awesome but it was stuff we have worked on. Putting balls on the goalkeeper and seeing what happens.
“I don’t aim for putting them in corners but right on target and fortunately they went in. The performance was awesome from everyone. Everyone knew what was needed from us and we did it to a tee and that was the most pleasing thing.”
Jacobson went on to discuss the Chairboys’ strong start to the new season, saying that their turn around in home form over the course of the past few seasons has helped the club get the fans behind them, helping them along their way.
“I have been here five years and for the first couple of years it was our away form that was really special but for some reason we have changed it and turned it around.
“I think having better home form is better for us. It means the fans can get right behind us and the occasion was incredible for this game. We knew it was one of the biggest games in the country and we wanted to put on a performance.
“If we can make this place a fortress and teams come here and change the way they play, that will only breed more confidence for us.”
