Jason Puncheon was delighted to send Barnet into the FA Cup fourth round.
Jason Puncheon admits sending Barnet into the FA Cup fourth round is one of the best moments of his fledgling career.
The young midfielder struck with 10 minutes to go in Tuesday's third-round clash against Championship high-flyers Colchester United.
Ismail Yakubu had earlier drawn Barnet level and the club will now face either Plymouth Argyle or Peterborough United after reaching the fourth round for the first time.
"It's probably one of the best things I've ever had," Puncheon told Sky Sports News.
"I'm only 20 and it's a good thing. I'm very happy and pleased for the football club.
"It just goes to show how much it means to the football club, the players and the fans."
Puncheon joined The Bees from Milton Keynes Dons on a free transfer last summer and has scored four goals in 28 appearances.
He originally arrived at Underhill on a short-term contract and he feels his hard work is now being rewarded.
"It means a lot to me," continued Puncheon. "I've been here since the start of the season.
"When I first came here, I was on a one-month contract. Now I've took my chance and I've worked very hard for it, so I'm very happy and pleased."
