Video & Quotes from Newts following win over Oldham...

  • Back in the team, back in the goals…

“I have been working hard to get back as quick as possible. This season has been stop-start for me so far, it is one of them. Last year I did not miss a game, and this year I am getting injuries that I have never had in my career.”

“They are little injuries that are keeping me out, which are freak injuries. I got a knock in training, and I have been working as hard as I can to get back out there, and thankfully got my reward today.”

"I have been watching for the last few weeks, and that is frustrating for any player. After not being able to influence the game or be part of the squad, it is nice to be out there. Luckily, I got the winner."

  • Bold changes by the gaffer…

"It was two good sides going at it. We have edged them because of the players we have and the determination we have. They have come at us, and we showed good resolve to get back into the game and win it."

"I have always had it in myself where I look at a game and think where I can influence it. I seem to be okay at coming on and trying to change it, so it is nice to finally have it come off."

  • Fully fit?

"The ankle is getting there. You saw the shot I had at the goalkeeper and I basically just passed it back to him because it is still a bit weak. I am getting stronger every day, finally back to full fitness and hopefully pushing for a start."

  • Good vibes in the dressing room... 

"We are here to win, and we are here to do as well as we can each week. We are playing some lovely stuff, we have got the players to do it and you can see the fans are enjoying it as well."
