After scoring three goals in the 3-1 win against Newport, a delighted Matt Godden says he now wants to “kick on” and do even better as the season progresses.

Two goals in the first half followed by a penalty in the second saw Godden take home his first match ball for the club, but getting the home win was what mattered most to the striker.

“It is very good. It is nice to obviously score three goals and win the game 3-1 but most importantly we have got a big monkey off our back now with a home win.

“It has been a long time coming but it is time to kick on now, from both myself and the team’s point of view. I don’t want to stop scoring goals and we don’t want to stop winning.

“If anything we had been playing better here than away, but winning away and not picking up results here. It is a step in the right direction. Now we will try and push on, go forward and look forward to going down to Plymouth next week.”

Always a tireless worker, Godden says a change in emphasis from the manager came to good effect today.

“It is part of my game to put in all the effort but the gaffer has asked me to be more ruthless and take more shots. I was scoring and chipping in with a few goals every now and then but I wasn’t taking no way near as many shots as I would like.

“The gaffer and I have sat down, spoken and watched a couple of the games I have played in. We rectified that and it showed today.
