Howe: I just want to show what I can do

25 March 2021

On-loan defender Teddy Howe made his first career league start on Tuesday, helping the side win 2-0 against Bradford City.

Howe played a big part in helping the team make it four games unbeaten, putting the cross into the box that culminated in Devarn Green scoring the Iron's second goal on the night.

Speaking to iFollow Iron, he said: “It was a good start to my career in playing league games. It was a good win and a positive outcome today.

“I haven’t played for a while, and you want to be 100 per cent for when you play and get that chance. Tonight, I was, so it was good to get a good run out and show what I can do. 

“It was a brilliant team performance. We showed what we can do and we had a lot of opportunities to score more goals. As a team today I thought we were outstanding.”

Commenting on his own personal performance, he said: “I just want to show what I can do, that’s why I came here, just to play as many games as I can. With the more games I play, hopefully I can show a bit more of what I'm about. I just like to get forward and try and create goals as well as stop goals. Hopefully I can show the fans that."

He added: “I like to get crosses into the box, sometimes they don't work, but I like to get forward and try to create as many chances as possible and help the team. Hopefully I did that tonight and we can push onto the next game after the international break.”

Howe is keen to push on, and said: “We had a long wait until the next game because of the international break, so we had to go for it, and I thought all the boys put in 100 per cent, and it shows with the 2-0 win.

“I came here to play as many games as I could and just to get that experience, and also to show what I can do at the same time. Hopefully there are many more games to come.”

Speaking about his experience since joining the club from Blackpool in January, Howe explained that the welcome was warm. He said: “When I joined here, as a new lad you’re quite scared. But they were really welcoming and as soon as I came here it was a warm welcome.

"Ever since then, you get to know the lads and they help you through the basics and then through the matches. It’s great to play alongside them, and I’m getting a lot of experience from them.”
