Steve Housham believes supporters are beginning to see the real Gainsborough Trinity following their 6-0 demolition of Barrow in the Skrill North.

After delving into the loan market, Housham says the new additions are helping the team play the way he wants them to play.

The Blues boss says there is a feeling around the club that a sustained climb up the table is now possible.

Trinity have won their last two games away from home, scoring eight goals in the process without conceding. And Saturday’s thrashing at Housham’s former club Barrow was a record away win for the club.

“We were ruthless,” said Housham. “Barrow actually took a bit of a foothold in the game early on, but once we scored the first goal there was nothing stopping us.

“Once the second goal went in, Barrow were struggling. They lost a bit of organisation and we just ran away with it. We came in at half-time 3-0 ahead and I just told the team to continue doing what they were doing.

“When it gets like that everyone wants to score and it can upset your rhythm, but I thought we remained disciplined and we kept another clean sheet.

"There’s a feeling that we have the personnel here now that we need and we are playing in the right way. We have found the final piece of the jigsaw if

you like.”

Trinity’s first goal was scored by loanee Lewis McMahon, who looped the ball over the Barrow keeper after 24 minutes. Three minutes later, Bradley Barraclough headed home number two.

Just before half-time, McMahon struck again with a header which put his side 3-0 ahead at the break.

Trinity’s domination continued in the second half as Simon Russell converted a penalty, Barraclough added his second and McMahon completed his hat-trick to give Trinity a comfortable 6-0 victory.

“We have a very tough game against Brackley on Tuesday evening, but we couldn’t go into it after a better performance,” Housham added.

“Brackley are very well organised and I think one of the best teams in this league, but we will be very confident.

“I may even have a few selection headaches, but they are good headaches to have.”
