Taft looks ahead to the weekend

15 October 2021

Defender George Taft is looking to bounce back from last weekend's disappointment against Harrogate Town when his side host league leaders Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

The 28-year-old, who has started all 11 league matches so far, said: “We’ve looked back on the game and where the mistakes came from. It’s hard to take, it was a really bad result. This next match could be our turning point though and we have to start that somewhere; why not at home this weekend?”

The defender commented on the Iron’s defensive strengths earlier in the season. He said: “I think we had a good pre-season and a good start to the season (being defensively solid in the immediate games after the season opener against Swindon). We know we can do it, so it’s about getting that confidence and belief, and proving it this Saturday.”

Discussing the tough game this weekend against the league leaders, he commented: “They’re a good side and play decent football. It’s going to be a tricky game but it’s good to be home and back on our pitch. We owe the fans a lot after last Saturday’s game and hopefully we can start putting that right on Saturday."
