Forward Ged Garner sat down with the press at Poolfoot Farm on Thursday afternoon and previewed Fleetwood Town’s upcoming league clash against Gillingham.
Garner – who is now on seven league goals for the season – netted the opener in the win over the Trotters earlier on this week and assisted the first of Harrison Biggins’ late brace which secured the game for Stephen Crainey.
Here’s what Ged had to say ahead of the game:
On Saturday’s opposition…
“It’s a big game, some would say it’s a six-pointer, so we have to go into the game with confidence after the Bolton win and try to get the three points. Every game where there are three points up for grabs is crucial and with the position, we are in now, in terms of the table, we need them.
“The aim is always to look above and try to overtake whoever is above so we can climb out of the bottom four. I feel like we’ve got a good team here who have just been a bit unlucky so I’m confident we can push up the table.”
On his goals for the season…
“I’m a bit greedy myself, I want more goals than assist as I am a striker, but I also want to try to get more assists this year as that one on Tuesday was my first of the season. I’m judged on goals, but I am looking to turn in a few assists as I can play as a box-to-box player, come deep, and get the ball myself.
“I don’t say I want to score this many goals or that many assists, I just go into every game and try to do my best and push for a goal and assist at the same time. I’m on seven in the league now so I would be disappointed if I don’t finish the season with 10 – I’m heading towards that.”
On the win over Bolton on Tuesday…
“It’s what we’ve needed to be honest, we’ve been unlucky with some of the results over the last couple of weeks and some of the things that have gone against us, but we’re all happy to get the win and hopefully get a run going.
“Momentum is a big thing in football, once you get one win, it can take you into the next one and when you are in the Christmas schedule where games come thick and fast, teams can build on results. If we can get a few wins around Christmas, we could shoot up the table.”
