Clements: Squad has an extra incentive

30 January 2014

Midfielder Chris Clements thinks our team are capable of extending their current good form in Sky Bet League Two.

Clements, who grabbed an assist in last Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Wycombe Wanderers, also believes our squad has an extra incentive to succeed in the remainder of this campaign.

“We’ve got to look at every game as a big game and go into it wanting to win,” said the midfielder.

“The fact that [Saturday’s match] is a long, long journey makes it a little bit harder, but we’re staying overnight so we should have fresh legs come the morning.

“Hopefully, we can get something – even a point would be a good result away from home.

“If you get a few wins under your belt, you can rocket up the table and that’s what we need to do. We need to concentrate on not losing, but gaining points.”

The 23-year-old also thinks the news earlier this week that the club will be signing no new players during the current transfer window, gives our squad an extra incentive to succeed.

He continued: “I think it gives us an incentive to prove that, as a group of players, we’ve got what it takes and quality in-depth to actually stay in the league.

“It’s a big onus on us to try and prove to the gaffer that we can actually do it ourselves.”

Reflecting on last weekend’s match with Wycombe Wanderers, the creative playmaker believes we should have taken all three points.

“We found ourselves 2-0 down due to two silly mistakes and it’s those little lapses of concentration that we’ve got to take care of,” said Clements.

“We can score goals. We scored two and in the end we should have probably won, but it’s a little bit of concentration we’ve got to work on in order to win games.”

He added: “I don’t know what it is, but since Christmas we seem to be performing better and the results are showing.”
