Clarke talks about his return from injury

10 April 2018

Defender Jordan Clarke is pleased to be back amongst the starting XI following his recovery from a hamstring injury and feels he’s getting fitter as each game passes.

The 26-year-old has started United’s last two matches after being a half-time substitute against Rochdale and is looking to keep that run going, while aiming for maximum points against Charlton Athletic this weekend. He spoke to iFollow Iron following the 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

ON THE DRAW AT AFC WIMBLEDON…
JC: Overall, for me and the team, it was disappointing. First-half especially, we started slowly. We got in a few times and created a few chances, but we needed to be better and we’ve conceded a poor goal. In the second-half, we were much better. We defended really well and pushed on, created a lot of chances and got the equaliser. For us to not take all three points, which is what we need at the minute, is a bit disappointing.

ON THE RECENT RUN OF RESULTS…
JC: It’s a frustrating run we’re on. I’ve been a fan watching the team for three or four months and this was my second or third involvement in the past couple of weeks. It’s been frustrating watching it and it’s frustrating being involved in it. We are trying our best to get maximum points every game. We are still trying to implement the way that we want to play. We know what we can do, the fans know what we can do and other teams know what we can do, so that’s why teams set up the way they do against us.

ON BEING BACK IN THE TEAM…
JC: I’m really pleased. It’s frustrating being injured, first and foremost, and it’s frustrating watching, whether the team is doing well or not. On a personal note, it’s good to be back involved. It’s good to have lasted the whole 90 minutes and for me I’m 100 per cent getting fitter each game. I feel like I’ve performed well and each game it is only going to get better.

ON FACING CHARLTON ATHLETIC THIS WEEKEND…
JC: Charlton are in and around us as well. We’ll be going for the win. It doesn’t matter who we play.
