Wes - Happy To Be A Spectator

2 January 2013

WES Foderingham admits that he is happy to have little to do during matches as long as the team is picking up wins.

Speaking exclusively to the official website in the aftermath of Town’s 5-0 hammering of Portsmouth, the goalkeeper says that the team responded well after two successive postponed matches.

“It’s almost like going back to last season where I didn’t have much to do,” he said. “As long as we’re winning and keeping clean sheets I’m happy. 

“The first half was a little bit touch and go to be honest. They had a couple of scary moments and I had a little bit to do but second half we put in a good performance and I didn’t have much to do at all.

“Our hunger has grown over the last few days. The first game (on Boxing Day) got cancelled then the second game (at Colchester) got cancelled. We just needed to play a game and it’s a while since we played so I think the boys just wanted to get out and put a good performance on. 

"We were a bit rusty at the start but the second half we got into full flight, started getting balls into the box and started playing some nice football."

After playing just three fixtures over the Christmas period, the stopper believes that the Town’s settled back line have performed admirably and that the festive wins will stand the team in good stead across the second part of the campaign.

“At Oldham it was difficult to start with but we came away with a clean sheet,” he said. “Against Tranmere I think we stunned everybody with the 5-0 and today we’ve followed that up really well. 

“Over the three games we’ve defended really well and we’ve had the same back four which has helped. At the moment we’re enjoying our football at the back. 

“You can’t win 5-0 every week - if we can go through the season winning 5-0 then that’s amazing but the chances of that happening are not realistic. We know that some games are going to be difficult and other games we’re going to be scoring more goals but we just need to keep doing our best and keeping up the standard and I’m sure we won’t go far wrong this season.”
