Iron striker Danny Whitehall talks us through his magnificent free-kick goal in Tuesday night’s 4-0 win over Darlington, he also reflects on the opening weeks of the National league North campaign.
When asked his opinions on Tuesday nights emphatic victory from both a team and personal perspective he said: “It was a very good performance. After Saturday, it was a good opportunity to bounce back. We started much better and if somebody didn’t miss a penalty in the opening 25 minutes which was good."
Danny took to social media after Saturdays 1-1 draw with Peterborough Sports, tweeting: “never too high, never too low”. When asked about how this ties into his recent performances he replied: “I think it does (reflect on the last two games).
"I think it comes with the professional side because the highs are very high but the lows can be quite low so it’s important you don’t get too down about it. I’m trying to find somewhere in the middle and that probably helped with my performance on Tuesday.
After scoring a magnificent free kick during Tuesdays fixture, he had this to say in reflection: “I’ve always fancied myself in the free-kick department and a dead ball situation is obviously one that you can practice. I stood over it with Butts (Jacob Butterfield) and he quite fancied it himself, but he let me take it and thankfully it ended up in the top corner."
When referring to the healthy levels of competition manager Jimmy Dean has created throughout the squad, especially with fellow striker Danny Elliott, he commented: “I get on well with Danny, he’s a top lad and we both have similar backgrounds after playing out in America and coming back here to play professionally.
"I think we are two different types of players which gives the gaffer good options. He’s probably not happy to be not starting just like I was for the Tamworth game, but we don’t let that come between is or the team, so we’ll just keep working hard."
When questioned on how important it is to keep the momentum and good performances going in this league due to his vast experience across the pyramid, he replied: “It’s definitely important to keep the ball rolling, and its obviously great to do that but at the same time it’s easy to get on a bad run so we need to avoid doing that and keep doing what we are doing."
