In-form forward looks ahead to Mansfield
Sean Rigg believes that a slightly different attacking role has brought the best out of him recently and recaptured his scoring touch.
The 26-year-old will be aiming to make it three goals in three games against Mansfield tomorrow after failing to score in two months prior to his prolific recent run.
Speaking to Dons Player, Rigg (pictured receiving congratulations from George Francomb after his winner at Wycombe) says he’s enjoyed supporting Bayo Akinfenwa in attack.
“We’ve changed our formation slightly with Matt Tubbs and me playing off Bayo. I think it’s working well,” said Rigg. “I’ve been getting among the goals and hopefully I can maintain my form. I’m on five goals now for the season so far and if I can get another one tomorrow I will be over the moon. My favourite two positions are playing up top as a striker or on the left. If I can continue my recent form and the boys keep playing well we will be alright this season.
“We have struggled this season against teams below us in the table this season, but we beat York last week after doing well against Wycombe. We will go into this match with a lot more confidence than we’ve had previously. Mansfield will be a big, physical side, but I think we can deal with that.”
Rigg is certainly not one of those players who views a packed Christmas schedule as an inconvenience and a time when there should be a football break in this country.
“Over the years I’ve enjoyed the Christmas period,” added Rigg. “There are a lot of games and it can be tough on your body, but I love playing around Christmas. We have a lot of games coming up. I want to be going into every one believing that I will score and the team will do well.”
