Josh Gordon pleased to get back on the goal trail

21 January 2021

Walsall striker Josh Gordon was pleased to get back on the goal trail after netting against Morecambe on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old scored his fifth goal of the campaign at the Mazuma Stadium as the Saddlers earned a point against the Shrimps.

Gordon is keen to take the positives from the game as he prepares to return to his home town to face Port Vale at the weekend.

"I'm glad to be back on the scoresheet,” Gordon said.

"It's a good ball by Eli (Adebayo). The gaffer said before the game he put me in that position to try and get in at the back post and that's what I did.

"Luckily I reacted well and got the goal to get us going.

"It would have been nice to get three points either today or on Saturday but we got another point and all we can do is take the positives into Saturday against Vale, which will be a tough game.”

"It's my home town so there is that competitive side there.

"The main thing is the team trying to get the three points and work our way up the table. Make these draws positive.”

The goal at Morecambe was Gordon’s 26th in a Walsall shirt and it came on his 101st appearance for the club.

The striker was proud to have reached the milestone of 100 appearances and feels he’s now one of the more experienced heads in the squad.

"I'm very proud but I didn't know until I was told to be honest,” he commented.

"It's nice to see that I'm playing more games now and starting to become more of an experienced player, so to speak, especially within our team.

"Especially coming into the pro game quite late and realising I've got to that milestone already is good.”

The Saddlers will be hoping to do the double over Port Vale when they travel to Vale Park and you can watch all the action unfold live on iFollow by purchasing a match pass here.
