Curle heaps praise on Sam

Curle: Praised hat-trick hero Sam

Notts County boss Keith Curle hailed Lloyd Sam after the striker scored a match-winning hat-trick in their 3-1 win over Yeovil.

Jonathan Franks looked to have denied County victory when he equalised with 11 minutes to go but two more Sam strikes sealed their win.

Curle said: "Lloyd just keeps getting better and better.

"He took a little time to settle in, and we always said we would see the best of him once we started getting him into the right areas.

"We did that and he took his goals brilliantly."
