Paterson full of smiles after first headed goal to clinch a point...
JAMIE Paterson was full of smiles as he celebrated his last-minute equaliser at Swindon Town.
Not only was it the talented wide-man’s tenth goal of the season but also the first he has ever scored with his head as he sweetly met Ashley Hemmings’ pin-point cross.
“I’m happy with the goal and the point,” he said. “It was the first time that I’ve ever scored with my head, so I'm pleased with that.
“It was a great cross from Ashley Hemmings who put it on a plate for me, to be fair.
“That’s goal number ten for me now, so I’ve reached the target that I set myself, but the main thing for me is putting in good performances. If I can do that on a consistent basis, the goals will follow.
“It was a big point for us in what was a tough away game. We stuck to our task and got our reward in the end.
“They were in our faces from the very start, but we showed them what we are capable of.
“Now we have to make sure that we continue against Tranmere. They’ve been up there all season and will be tough; hopefully we can keep the momentum going and get the three points on offer.
“The Gaffer has installed so much confidence in us and we feel that we can beat anyone. We’ve got a strong squad here where anyone can come off the bench and make an impact, as Nicky Featherstone and Ashley Hemmings did on Saturday.
“I feel that we can really push on from here and with players committing themselves to the club, it gives us a good base on which we can build.
“We’re taking each game at a time, though, and going into each game in a positive frame of mind.”
