DEVANTE COLE LOOKS AHEAD TO EXETER CITY CLASH

6 October 2022

Our striker previewed the visit of Exeter City on Saturday and divulged on a number of topics with the assembled press.

ON THE SEASON SO FAR

"It has been a positive start for us. We've bought into what the gaffer brought into the Club, and I think we've got to keep it going.

"Hard work pays you back. Don't get too high off of one win, don't get too low after a defeat. He's drilled that into us, we've just taken it and it's producing results."

ON HIS FORM THIS SEASON

"Of course a striker you want to score goals and I've always thought I can do that.

"Everyone just wants to do well. When you're on the pitch doing well, you'll do well together. As much as there is a rivalry, it's not really seen like that. Everyone's just doing well, so we're happy.

"As strikers, when you're all working well together and scoring goals, it helps everyone to be more confident. There's not a 'he's scoring, I'm not scoring', we just want everyone to do well."

ON RELATIONSHIP WITH MICHAEL DUFF

[Duff played with Devante's father, Andrew Cole at Burnley] "Yeah, probably on the first or second day he mentioned it and had a little chat over it. Then, we just got to work. 

"My Dad didn't say anything to be fair until he mentioned him, so I had a little conversation and that was that."

ON HIS ROLE IN THE SQUAD

"I'm not old, but here, I am essentially. So I think there's a little bit of that on me, but I feel like I've just got to go out there, play well and just do the best I can."

ON THE GOOD FORM OF THE TEAM

"It's just repetition. One game, then the next game and the game after that. Keep going, and see where we end up. 

"This period leading up to Christmas it starts to get really busy. It's just picking up results now to put yourself in a good position.

"If you're putting the hard work in, anyone we play home or away is in for a tough battle this year. If we keep on doing that, we'll be hard to beat."
