VIDEO: Robert Briggs pleased as goal and assist help see off Birtley

Robert Briggs scored one goal and set up the other as South Shields moved to within four wins of promotion with a 2-0 victory over Birtley Town on Saturday.

The Mariners had been kept at bay by the battling visitors, but found a way through thanks to Briggs’ header on 64 minutes.

In the video above, the midfielder – who was named Man of the Match by hospitality guest Lee Surtees – discusses the match, and why at this stage of the season, it is results rather than performances which count.

He also talks about how close he feels the team is to completing the job this campaign, and previews Wednesday’s game at Heaton Stannington.
