Matty Wolfe spoke to the press ahead of our clash with Swansea City on Good Friday.

“I’m buzzing. Just over the moon to get it over the line, but I’m more focussed on the game tomorrow and the games coming up, first and foremost, and trying to win those games.

“Since I first played against Bournemouth, there were talks about a new contract. There were a lot of things going on with the team and trying to win games, so it kind of got put to the back of the to-do list. But I’m just glad to get it over the line.”

“I’ve always had the confidence that the time would come, but maybe before I felt like I wasn’t ready or physically ready. When I came back from the loan, I knew that I was ready, and it was time to really get in the team and try to build forward from that.”

“Since I was 16 or 17, I never really had a run of games because of injuries. Over there, it was 16 games in six months, so it put me in good stead for when I came back and I was a lot more confident with injuries I’ve had previously, that I could kick on.

“It helped me a lot, growing up, fending for yourself in a different country and stuff. I didn’t have my mum to make my bed and do my washing, so I had to do that as well. So, it was good to grow up.

“It was sort of like starting from square one – you have to kind of prove that you can play and get the trust from the manager and players. Then it all fell in quite well and it was just an enjoyable experience to look back on.”

“It still just feels surreal putting the shirt on and playing every week. But when you start when you’re 10-years-old, it’s what you try to achieve, so to be in and around it, playing and starting games, it’s surreal.”

“I thought we started the game well, first 15 minutes, and then they obviously got the goal and the game fizzled out. We can’t think too much about the Millwall game – we’ve got to focus on tomorrow and the games coming up and try to get as many points as we can.”

“We can’t let it get the better of us like we did against Millwall – and probably Reading, as well. We’ve just got to go and leave nothing out there, that’s all we can do.

“Training has been really good, really intense. If we can get six points over this weekend, it puts us right back in it, so we’ve just got to stay confident and get as many points as we can.”
