We're Looking to Push On - Isgrove

7 January 2016

Reds midfielder Lloyd Isgrove spoke to the media ahead of the Reds’ Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final first leg against Fleetwood Town.

The midfielder has extended his loan deal with the Reds for another three games, which takes him until the end of January and he is happy to be staying at Oakwell.

He said: “It was an easy decision to make. It’s three more games which takes me to the end of January and I think it’s a good decision.

“Beyond that, I’m sure we’ll talk more and if they come in with an offer, we’ll have to see what happens. Whether that means to stay until the end of the season, we’ll see.

“The last two performances have been the team’s and personally my best performances and we’re in a good place at the moment.”

The Southampton loanee joined the Reds during their poor run of results but he was confident that the run was always going to come to an end.

Isgrove added: “With the players here, we had it in the back of our minds we’d get out of that run and it was just when we were going to get that bit of luck and start getting results.

“Hopefully we can push on now from the last two results and we’ve got another home game on Saturday and I’m looking forward to that.

“They (Fleetwood) beat us here which was my first game, and we know they’re tough opposition. If we play how we have done for the last few games and the fans get behind us, we’ll be alright.”

The carrot of Wembley is becoming more and more of a reality for the Reds and Isgrove feels that a positive start against Fleetwood could help them achieve a trip to the capital.

“The lads have been saying we won’t get a better chance to get to Wembley," he continued. "We’re really looking forward to this one and hopefully we can give something back to the fans and get a trip to Wembley.

“The play-offs aren’t what we’re looking at because of where we are in the league but a trip to Wembley would be a great day out for the fans.

“We’ve improved as a squad and as a group of players and the gaffer’s stuck with what he believed in and the results are showing now and hopefully we’ll get a good result on Saturday to take to their place,” he added.
