Russ Wilcox believed Paddy Madden needed just one opportunity to find the net against his former club Yeovil on Saturday.

Madden scored his second goal of the season at the weekend in a 1-1 draw at Huish Park.

The home side took the lead through Kieffer Moore midway through the second half, before Madden levelled the game in the last 10 minutes.

Wilcox said Madden just needed that one chance to find net for him to get his goal.

“His attitude was spot on,” Wilcox told The Iron Player.

“We knew Yeovil would try and wind him up and be aggressive with him, but I felt he controlled himself well.

“How many times do you see an ex player come to a club and put the ball in the net?"

Madden spent over a year with Yeovil and fired the club to Championship in the 2012-13 season after claiming 23 league goals to take the League One golden boot.

The striker would have been known to those at Yeovil and they defended against him well, but Wilcox has faith in Madden's qualities and felt he was always going to score if he got the chance.

Wilcox said: “He had a quiet game, they shut him down well and stopped his opportunities.

“But top goal scorers, which he is, just need that one chance which he got towards the end and he thankfully put it away.”
