Darren Huckerby broke a personal goal drought at Tamworth - and will now target the Championship for a return to scoring form.
The City winger had gone 15 Championship games without a goal, but shared the plaudits with Dion Dublin on Saturday as City cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Welcome as the goals were, Huckerby was left wishing he had saved one for next weekend, when City entertain Plymouth looking to avenge a 3-1 humiliation in the west country in September.
"I enjoyed the first one - the second one I could have done with that going in next week," he said. "Hopefully we can take these goals on to next week.
"But it is always nice to win games and that's what's most important to me and the lads.

"We are happy with the result - they put us on TV because it is a banana skin and people wanted us out of the cup.
"They put us under a bit of pressure, but only because the pitch was not the best and it's not the best weather - but we knew if we stuck to our guns we'd make chances and that's what we did."
City had their edgy moments, particularly when Tamworth went close during the early stages, although Huckerby knew what to expect.
"I wouldn't say we were worried," he added. "We knew they were going to put us under pressure. That's what they tried to do and we came through it early and there was only going to be one team that won it."
