Gordon pleased to be back on the scoresheet

27 April 2021

Walsall striker Josh Gordon is looking to add to the goal he scored against Scunthorpe United in the final two games of the season.

The 26-year-old netted his first goal since January when he doubled the Saddlers’ lead with a neat finish at the weekend.

Gordon was delighted to see the ball hit the back of the net and find himself back on the scoresheet.

“As a striker you want to be scoring goals,” he said.

“I’ve had a bit of a drought but I don’t think the opportunities which I’d have liked to. We’ve been feeding off scraps for a few games trying to find our way off playing.

“I can score goals, I’ve shown it in the three years that I’ve been here. Opportunities like that where I get the instinct of doing what I know can do and I get my goal, hopefully I can get a couple more before the end of the season.”

“We were able to interchange positions but we were still always attacking. I was able to stay more central by having Wes, Ty, Paddy and Kins there doing it all that work allowed me to do my work in the box. I got my opportunity and I got my goal.”

The Saddlers have two more games left to play this season against Morecambe at the Banks’s Stadium before a trip to Carlisle United on the final day.

Gordon is keen to end the season on a high both individually and as a team.

“It’s all about getting as much out of it as we can,” he insists.

“That’s everybody, finishing on a high, doing it for ourselves and doing it for the club until the end of the season.”
