Jack relishes strike pairing

26 January 2014

Dons striker on getting back among the goals

Jack Midson says that hard work on the training ground paid off yesterday after his forward partnership with Charlie Wyke showed further signs of blossoming.

Midson has been rejuvenated recently since being handed regular starts by Neal Ardley and he has dovetailed well up front with loan signing Wyke. That was certainly in evidence yesterday when Midson struck the winner after his strike partner set-up the first for Luke Moore.

Midson said: “We always work on things in training. It’s never guaranteed who will start, but we have spells when we change the forwards around to get used to playing with each other. Charlie is an honest player who works very hard and we talk to each other. As an experienced player I can give him information, but he can help me out too. We try and run in behind defences and hold the ball up. I’m enjoying playing up front with Charlie.

“I never take it for granted that I will play, but I work hard on the training pitch to give myself every opportunity of starting matches. I think I’ve proven in the past in the Conference and the Football League that if I play regularly then I’ll score goals regularly. The fans have stuck behind me, but I have to keep taking my chances to stay in the starting line-up and get more goals.”
