Reece Wabara has given his thoughts following his wonder goal giving us the lead against Swindon Town at the weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site following his 30 yard strike being his first goal for the club since arriving over the summer, the player went on to say that it was certainly one of his finest of his four in his career so far.

‘It was a little bobbling ball from Conor, I just had to get it out of my feet and shoot, the rest is history. I was waiting for the ‘keeper to get a touch but when it hit the back of the net I was buzzing. But first and foremost, my job is to defend. If I can chip in with some goals and assists, hopefully that will go a long way.’

Wabara went on to say that ‘momentum’ in football is huge and does go a long way for sides when it comes to sustaining unbeaten and winning runs, so hopefully that win will be another building block that really boosts everybody’s confident and we can now kick on even further, as for him it certainly showed going into the half time break with the lead as that was massive for us adding the extra two after the restart.

There’s obviously still improvements to be made, some settling and clicking to be done, but he’s confident we can thrive in this division and push on if we ‘mature’ as a side.

‘We`ve got to mature and mature fast. We have a lot of ability but we can`t be na├»ve because this league is very difficult. We need to learn to mix it up but we have ability and that`s a very good base to have. We`ve got a win today against a very good team at that and hopefully we can take that into the Blackpool game and start a run.’

With promotion being the clear aim for the season, Wabara went on to say that if we didn’t achieve that he felt with the quality in the squad the players would’ve done a ‘disservice to ourselves.’

‘Every game we go into, the manager says we`ve got to win and it`s that simple. We want to get promoted and we demand the most of ourselves.’
