INTERVIEW: Nice to play a part

24 September 2013

David Amoo on the weekend game

Wide man David Amoo made it five goals for the season so far when he sealed United's victory at Stevenage and we caught up with him to talk about an important victory and a neat finish shortly after full time at the Lamex Stadium.

“It was a fantastic way for us to build on what we did last week,” he said. “Stevenage is a tough place to come. They have some good players and they are an aggressive team. It was good for us to come away with all three points.

“It’s even better for us because we worked all week on our game plan. When it comes to fruition it’s very pleasing for everyone.”

“I had a good day on a personal level because I scored a goal and I set one up,” he admitted. “The important thing is that we got the win, but it is nice to play a part in it. I’ve been asked to work hard and help the team and that’s what I’m trying to do at the moment.

“We’ve all been through a lot at the start of this season and we’ve shown a bit of character to come past all that and to start winning games. We just want to build on it now.”

“I think we all knew we weren’t performing to the best of our ability,” he said. “The confidence is there now and we’re starting to really believe in ourselves.”

“It was good to get the goal but I probably should have done better with the chance I had in the first half,” he told us. “These things happen and you just have to put it out of your head. 

“When we went forward in the second half I honestly thought Dave Symington was going to score. I was actually gutted for him when ti came back off the post but luckily for me I had followed it in once I’d made the pass. I just kept my eye on it and made sure that it was on target.

“There simply isn’t a better feeling than scoring in front of your own fans. I love scoring and I think I just ran away and shouted or something. It was a great moment.

“I have set myself targets with goals this season because I took it on board that it’s a part of my game that has to improve. I’ve been working on my finishing after most of our sessions and hopefully I’ll chip in with a few more. Like I say, the most important thing is to help the team and if I score a goal or two then that will be a bonus.”

“We aren’t going to get carried away with the results from the last two weeks but the confidence is coming back now,” he confirmed. “Everyone has got behind the coaching staff because they’ve been fantastic in what were difficult circumstances. 

“It has been a tough time, we can’t get away from that, but we pulled together and we’ve got a bit of reward for that. Hopefully we can keep it going.”
