INTERVIEW: No better feeling

23 September 2013

Matt Robson on the Stevenage win

Goalscorer Matt Robson spoke to us about netting two goals in two games following the convincing victory at Stevenage. 

"I've scored a few with my right foot so it isn't a surprise," he insisted as we quizzed him about his neat second half goal. 

"Kav [Graham Kavanagh] talked to me at half time about the fact I was getting past my full back only to go back at him on the outside. That was obviously so I could use my left foot. He could see that it was getting a little bit predictable so as soon as I went the other way I knew I had to shoot. Thankfully it went into the bottom corner." 

"When we play with the three up front I have to come inside more," he continued. "You can't just hug the touchline because it leaves space in the middle of the pitch. 

"It's another adaptation I've had to make to my own game and I think I'm still learning, but I'm really enjoying my football at the moment. I started at left back last week and I moved further forward this week but, wherever I play, I always look to make a mark on the game and I'm managing to do that at the moment." 

"It's massive for us to get back to back victories," he admitted. "We talked about it on Friday night and we were all really focused on winning. It will be the same next weekend. We've given ourselves a really good chance of winning three games in a row and if we show the same level of performance against Notts County then the result should take care of itself."

"Even when they got a goal back we didn't sit back or let our heads drop," he continued. "We got back on top quite soon after that and I thought that our performance throughout the game deserved the three points. 

"The lads showed a lot of commitment and desire to get the back to back wins and I think you can see that the confidence is coming back. We're taking each day at a time and everyone is buzzing in training at the moment. There's no better feeling than being in a winning team and everybody wants to carry that on. 

"We've focused on the 40 game season and we've got two wins out of two so far. There are no easy games but if we put the same amount of effort in that we have done in the last two games then we're going to be a very tough side to compete with. The belief has always been there. I think we just needed these couple of wins to prove to everybody else that we're a good side."

"We're all behind Kav and Davie [Irons] and I think we're repaying the effort they're putting in with the performances we're showing," he told us. "They've tried very hard to instil confidence into us on the training ground and I think you can see that it's really paying off. Whatever happens with the managerial situation, we'll keep working hard and hopefully keep climbing up the table. 

"There was another good following down here from our fans which is always brilliant to see. They can go home and tell people who weren't here that we performed well and hopefully we'll see more of them at Brunton Park on Saturday. The more people we have supporting us and cheering us on the better it is for everybody."
