Scott Wagstaff enjoyed his switch to right-back and he aims to help our youngsters to build on that landmark victory yesterday.
Speaking after the 3-2 win against Rochdale, Scott talked about his change of role, a position he filled at Bristol City, and he praised our supporters for sticking with the team through a difficult spell.
“It’s a position I’ve played in before,” said Scott. “Obviously, the older I get the more distance that I have to try and cover! As long as I’m playing, that’s the main thing. I want to be playing and helping the young lads because we have a really young team here. That’s all I’m going to try and do now, to make sure we get the wins and get a good little run going. It’s a great feeling, the boys are all happy, and that’s how it should be. We haven’t had that winning feeling for a while.
“The fans were different class. You get goosebumps, especially when the third goal went in, you get that buzz. It’s brilliant to play in front of the fans here. When we haven’t been winning games, it’s difficult to stick with it, I understand that, but these are probably some of the best fans that I’ve played for. They’ve stuck with the boys when we’ve been beaten, they need to keep sticking with us, and we will always give 100 per cent for them.
“The boys showed good character to hold out at the end and I felt that the boys definitely deserved the win. We’ve got Leyton Orient on Tuesday (Leasing.com Trophy), which is going to be another tough game, and Southend on the Saturday, which is another big one. We are looking to try and get the three wins this week and start pushing up the table.”
