Palmer targets more goals

25 January 2014

Striker Ollie Palmer believes our side were unfortunate not to pick up all three points in this afternoon’s 2-2 draw with Wycombe Wanderers.

The Stags had to fight back from two goals down to earn a well-deserved point as Palmer grabbed an all-important equaliser in the 86th minute.

The 22-year-old was pleased to get back on the score sheet this afternoon, as he also praised our team’s fighting spirit.

“It was a bit of a poacher’s goal, but it was an important goal as well,” said Palmer.

“Obviously we didn’t want another loss at home, but it felt good getting a goal and picking up a draw.

“The boys worked really hard today and I thought we were quite unfortunate not to pick up all three points really.

“I think from the beginning we were on the front foot and really should have come away with all three points.”

He added: “We have turned a corner with our fighting spirit. Maybe a month or two months ago, we may have taken a beating, but we didn’t and everyone fought back. We got what we could today and come out with a point.”

Meanwhile, Palmer is looking forward to our Sky Bet League Two clash against Bury on Tuesday night, as he aims to score more goals heading into the remainder of the campaign. 

“It’s good to have the game against Bury on Tuesday night. It was important today that we showed fighting spirit - at least we have come away with a point. 

“It’s not a bad run at all, and if we can start turning our draws into wins it will be even better.

“I think obviously I’ve come out the side where I haven’t scored goals. I know a lot of people say I work hard, but at the end of the day my role is to score goals and I haven’t been doing that. 

“Hopefully now I have the monkey off my back and I feel a bit calmer now, so maybe I’ll score a few more goals.”
