Clucas: Best move of my career

31 October 2013

Frontman Sam Clucas believes his summer switch to Mansfield Town is the best move that he has made in his career.

The 23-year-old has earned numerous plaudits already this season, and currently leads our scoring charts with five goals from 15 appearances.

Nevertheless, after a winless October, the youngster is eager for us to register three points, starting tomorrow night at Southend United.

He said: “It’s going to be a tough game, with probably cold and difficult conditions, but we’ll go out there looking for the three points.

“In the last few games I think we’ve actually played better than we did at the start of the season, but we just can’t seem to score at the minute.

“It’s frustrating, but it’s a team game and if we stay solid at the back, then the goals will come for sure. Hopefully, we’ll be able to sort things out tomorrow night.”

Reflecting on his move to the club, Clucas continued: “It’s the best move I’ve made by far. 

“I couldn’t be happier with where I am at the minute. I’m playing football for a good club, I’m scoring goals and things are going well.”

Meanwhile, the striker believes the arrival of youngster James Alibi on a one-month loan from Stoke City will help to strengthen our side.

He added: “He’s big, he looks strong, and hopefully he’ll be able to adapt to League Two football quite well.”

Clucas also reflected on last Saturday’s encounter with Plymouth Argyle, which saw the Pilgrims steal all three points thanks to Neil Trotman’s injury-time winner.

“It was one of those days where I thought we played well as a team and created loads of chances, but unfortunately we couldn’t take one,” said the youngster.

“We shot ourselves in the foot, but it’s the way that football goes sometimes.”
