Pay on the gate at Oldham Athletic

27 October 2017

The 19-year-old started his campaign as he did last year - with a Checkatrade Trophy start against an invited side - but has since made six league starts and one further appearance in the Trophy competition following injury to Conor Townsend.

The left-back spoke to iFollow Iron about his season so far, last weekend’s victory and the test United will face at Oldham Athletic.

ON LAST WEEKEND’S WIN AGAINST PETERBOROUGH…
LB: It was really good (to get back to winning ways). I think the performances have been getting better over the last couple of games. On Saturday, we added a result to that to justify the performance. It shows a lot of character coming from behind. We shouldn’t have to do that and react to conceding, but it does show good character.

ON HIS RUN IN THE SIDE...
LB: I’m happy with it and it’s obviously nice to get as many games as I can and learn as much as I can from the spell I’ve got in the team. It’s only going to benefit me in the long run. I didn’t think I’d feature that much at all, maybe just a couple of Checkatrade games and be on the bench a couple of times, but I didn’t imagine I’d play this many games. It can only be a good thing.

ON OLDHAM ATHLETIC AND THE TEST THEY’LL POSE…
LB: It’ll be a tough game and I think we’ve had a really tough run of games. We’ve got to go there and approach the game in the right frame of mind. They’ve picked up a lot recently and it’s probably a bad time to play them, but we'll go there full of confidence that we can win.
