Jarvis: There's nothing like playing

24 September 2021

Aaron Jarvis is looking forward to this Saturday's home game against Port Vale following last week’s draw at Carlisle which saw the forward score his first goal of the season.

Speaking ahead of the home game against the Valiants, Jarvis told iFollow Iron: “It’s been a long time coming but I’m delighted to help the team out and get on the scoresheet myself. It was a frustrating end to the game for us but we’ll learn from that going forward."

Talking about his goal, he continued: "I felt like the ball was going to land there and I’m delighted to score, however they come.”

The 23 -year-old commented on the performance in the last game, adding: “I thought we were brilliant from the start of the game up to around the 80th minute when they were putting on pressure, they got one goal back and then it was kind of backs against the wall a little bit.

“It was a shame as it felt like two points lost. Hopefully, going forward we’re going to learn as a team together to see games out like that. It would have been a fantastic three points but we’ll go again.”

He continued: “For the majority of the game, we dominated it and created a good handful of chances. They didn’t have any chances until the later stages of the game - it was a good reaction from the Exeter game, which I’m sure we will be looking to do again this Saturday against Port Vale - we owe it to the fans and ourselves. The squad's had a good week training.”

Talking about this weekend’s opposition, he added: “We need to up our home performances especially, in front of our fans and give them something more to cheer about. They’re a good team and are in good form, but I think we’re going to be ready for Saturday and need to put in a good performance.”

Mentioning his performances in the three games he's started so far, he added: “I’m feeling good. I’m just happy to be back playing my football more regularly. I’m enjoying it and there’s nothing like it. I’m looking forward to helping the lads this season as much as I can going forward. Over the next coming weeks by getting games, I can get my match fitness to where I want it to be.”
