Gladwin - It Was An Easy Decision To Come Back

13 January 2017

Ben Gladwin has revealed that it was an “easy choice” to return to The County Ground and the attacker is now looking forward to getting down to business this weekend.


Tuesday saw the 24-year-old re-join the Reds on loan from QPR until the end of the 2016/17 campaign - his third spell at SN1 having previously made 70 appearances for the club.


With first-team football at a premium at Loftus Road, Gladwin had no hesitation in coming back to Wiltshire and is now determined to get as many minutes under his belt as possible between now and the end of the season.


“It was an easy choice and as soon as I heard that there was a possibility to come back then it was always my number one choice,” he said.


“I’m pleased to be back.


“It has been a little bit frustrating because I’ve been in and out of the team at QPR and I’ve not really had a run of games, so that’s the most important thing for me and that’s why I’m pleased to be back.


“The most important thing is to find myself again and play football.


“I feel like I’ve probably not progressed as much as I would have liked to in terms of playing games and scoring goals, so fingers crossed that is going to happen now.


“There is always a good bunch down here, there are a lot of new faces but there are still some faces that I know as well and they have been brilliant.


“It is a young squad and there is so much quality to turn it around and I think that will happen now. 


“There is so much ability in the dressing room and it is just believing in it now.”


Gladwin could well make his third debut for Town away at Bolton Wanderers tomorrow (3pm Kick-Off) and he’s confident of coming away from the Macron Stadium with at least a point. 


“It is a nice stadium and they pack it out so it is a big game but we shouldn’t be worried about that, we just need to go there and concentrate on what we do,” he added.


“Hopefully we can take some points away.


“With the way that we play football we need to try not to worry too much about the other team.


“We like to control the game and control the ball and maybe that might silence the fans and we need to take our chances when we get them.”
