Nuttall: I'm raring to go

31 January 2022

United’s latest January arrival Joe Nuttall is looking to hit the ground running and rediscover his goalscoring form while at the club.

The 24-year-old signs for the Iron from Championship side Blackpool and aims to be a focal point in the Iron’s line-up in the second half of the season.

Reacting to his move to iFollow Iron, he said: “I’m excited to get going. I’m excited to play games, hopefully I can score some goals and help the team get up the league where it should be.

“It’s come about pretty quick. Once I heard about it, it’s an opportunity for me to play some games, and again score some goals and help the team out.”

A knee injury curtailed his 2020-21 season which was meant to be spent on loan at Northampton Town but, after working hard to return to fitness, he’s ready to rejuvenate his career and get back on the scoring trail after registering 15 professional strikes so far.

“Obviously, it’s been a frustrating year, but I’m raring to go,” he continued. 

“I’m fit and I’m excited to play football. I’ve been in full training for around five months. I’ve been training hard, doing extras, and I’ve been trying to make sure that when I get a chance, I’m as ready as I can be.”

With Championship and League One experience already under his belt, along with a stint in Scotland too, Nuttall believes he can bring the qualities needed in front of goal to aid the side to survival in League Two.

“I started at Manchester City. I was there from a young age until I was 18,” he explained. 

“I had a spell in Scotland at Aberdeen, and then I ended up at Blackburn and Blackpool where I enjoyed my time there. I scored some goals and got some experience of league football which will hopefully help me progress and do well here.

“I’ll be trying to help the team with the experience that I do have. I’m about scoring goals, and that’s my main focus. It’ll be tough because scoring goals is the hardest thing to do in the game, but it’s what I pride myself on. If I can do that, it’ll only help and benefit the team.

“I think I add to the team with my qualities and strengths, and I think that’ll result in me getting the goals.”
