Fresh off signing a new two year deal with the club, striker Matt Godden says he couldn’t be happier with how things have gone since his summer arrival.

Despite only signing in the summer, Godden has been rewarded for his strong start to the season.

“Obviously I am delighted. The main reason for me moving was because I wanted to prove myself at a higher level and to do well at a higher level. I feel I have done that so far and I just thank the club and everyone involved for giving me the opportunity and this new deal.

“The club have seen what I am capable of but I feel I still have more to give. We sat down and had a look at a few things and I was doing too much travelling up to this point. I had been driving from Kent into training and on some days it was taking me up to three hours.

“Now I am moving up here, it will only get the best out of me.”

Currently the clubs leading goalscorer, Godden says he thrives on being the top marksman but believes he can still do better.

“Other than at Scunthorpe, I have been the one that everybody looks to for goals at pretty much every club I have been at.

“I enjoy that responsibility and I am just glad I am slowly getting used to the level. The gaffer has shown faith by starting me week-in-week-out and it has benefited me massively. I am sure that before too long more goals will start to flow.”

Improving results as a team has coincided with Godden’s individual form and he says he is looking forward to the upcoming schedule.

“The gaffer has instilled his philosophy and as players we are buying into it. We will only improve and if we continue to follow his lead, we should be reaching our targets come the end of the season.

“We have got two big games coming up, this Saturday against Doncaster and then next Tuesday at Newport. There are not many teams playing on either of those days so it is a chance for us to capitalise on that and move up the table towards the play-off places.”
