"We're a good team doing the right things" - Scowen.

19 March 2016

Reds goal scorer Josh Scowen spoke to the press after he secured the three points with an 84th minute header to give the Reds a 2-0 victory over League One rivals Fleetwood.

Scowen came off the bench and had an immediate impact, he gave his thoughts after the game.

Scowen said, “To come away with the three points is always nice. It was a tough game and the first half showed that, it was evens really. To be fair even when we went 1-0 up they still looked bright but lucky enough we carried on doing what we do and got the three points. 

“Good teams can win in any way and we won ugly today which shows we’re a good team doing the right things. We’re solid at the back and kept another clean sheet and we’ve always got the players to do a bit of magic and get the goals.”

The Reds opened the scoring after Joe Davis scored an own goal just after half time and Scowen feels his teammates never looked back from there.

“It’s always nice to get a helping hand!” He explained. “But we were solid at the back, we built from there and we had a few more chances towards the end. 

“Obviously getting a goal gives you a massive boost and it helped for the rest of the game. It’s nice to get my first goal since coming back from injury, hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season.”

After making the majority of his appearances as a substitute recently, Scowen acknowledged that it’s a squad game, paying compliments to his central-midfield colleagues, Josh Brownhill and Conor Hourihane.

He continued, “It’s been tough but I can’t say much when we’ve got Conor and Browny playing the way they have been! All I’ve got to do is keep going and if my chance does come I need to try and take it. 

“It’s a squad game, especially this Friday and Monday coming up I’m guessing the whole squad will be used for it, it’s a busy schedule but we’re fit young lads and we’ll give our best in both games.”
