INTERVIEW: It was definitely my goal

2 September 2016

Charlie Wyke on his goal against Oldham

We spoke to striker Charlie Wyke about his match-winning goal against Oldham on Tuesday.

"I don't think the last goal was controversial at all " he said. "It was definitely my goal. Everyone seems to have put it down as Raynesy [Michael Raynes] but it was definitely on target from me.

"It was a great ball in from Devs [Jamie Devitt] and luckily I got my head on it. As soon as I touched it I knew it was going in. It came off the defender as well and he helped it on its way."

On the overall team performance, he said: "It's good to come to a League One side and show what we're about. We did it at Derby the week before as well, which was pleasing.

"The boys are playing good football, the midfielders are keeping the ball and getting everyone going, so it's good to watch.

"I don't think I've ever been involved in a game with that many goals, but it was good to watch. The two goals they scored after half time were a bit frustrating for us but it was good to get the win in the end. 

"We showed great character. When they came back I think we all feared the worst, but we pulled ourselves together and got the win. We wanted to keep the unbeaten run going and it's all about seeing how long we can keep it up for. We need to take our away form into the two home games now."

"It's been frustrating to not be starting as much as I'd like but it's pleasing to still be scoring when I'm coming off the bench," he told us. "I'm getting some good chances and I've scored a few goals now. 

"Luckily I've been coming on for 30 or 35 minutes so I've been able to keep myself sharp. I've just got to keep working hard."
