Kevin Lisbie spoke to us after the 0-0 draw with Exeter...
News of Kevin Lisbie’s arrival at the Lamex broke shortly before the teams were announced for Tuesday night’s game at Exeter and the striker explains how he became available on loan.
“Things have changed there now. They have brought in a few strikers and I seem to have gone down the pecking order without really getting a chance. I am not one to sit around and not play football so as soon as an opportunity to play football came along, that is what I want to do.”
Lisbie was straight into the team, leading the line for Boro and he says the team performed well on the night.
“I thought we were really good, not many teams will come here on a Tuesday and dominate the game like we did at times. We had about four or five good chances I think we should have scored but it’s a good point, it takes us into the top seven I think so we can go home now and get the three points at home.”
The striker had a number of great opportunities to score, all in the air as he was the target of a number of superb crosses and he says that GW told him about the supply lines within the squad.
“When I spoke to the gaffer, that is what he said to me. I like to thrive off crosses and he said we have got some wingers here (that can provide him with good service) and it showed today. We got a good few crosses in and I should have scored one of them myself and a few others but we take it home now and hopefully get three points on Saturday.
“I am just impressed with the drive that this team has to get promoted. I was there at Leyton Orient last year and our ambition was to get promoted and that is what I want to be a part of. I don’t want to be at my age just be playing football for the sake of it. When I spoke to the gaffer he was desperate to get promoted and that is what I want.”
The next chance to see Lisbie in action is at home this weekend against Dagenham & Redbridge, ticket details here.
