Marriott: We've got to finish this season on a high

Forward Jack Marriott sat down with the media on Thursday afternoon and previewed Fleetwood Town’s upcoming League One clash against Lincoln City at Highbury.

28-year-old, Marriott, broke his duct at the Cods in recent weeks after finding the back of the net against Port Vale, securing a point at home at the time, and should have had a second against Derby County a week later, but his lobbed effort was ruled out by the referee for an unknown reason – he will be looking to add more goals to his tally this weekend when the Imps come to Fleetwood.

Here’s what Jack had to say in his interview:

On the atmosphere after the Derby win…

“The boys are in good spirits, and it’s been a good environment around the place after what was a hard-fought victory at the weekend. It’s a difficult place to go, we put it a good performance and a proper shift and came away with the rewards. Every game is different, going back to a former club is important and the fact we got the result is the main thing.

“The game showed us how good we can be, and how resilient we can be, against a team like that. We didn’t give them a great deal, which was pleasing, and it’s nice to see that the hard work we are putting in is paying off. With players coming to the club in January like myself, you have to get used to the way people play and the same the other way as well.

“Time, ultimately, is the most important thing and I certainly feel like we are getting there. We’ve got to keep pushing now until the end of the season to make sure we finish on a high, so we can go into next season full of confidence. Both the coaching staff and the players have all said that we don’t want the season to fizzle out so we’re making sure that we stay on it.”

On his first goal and partnerships…

“It was a nice feeling to get my first goal for the club a couple of weeks ago, and I had one disallowed against Derby last week which I’m unsure whether it should have been called off or not, but that’s a different question so we’ll gloss over that.

“Both Jayden [Stockley] and I came here at the same time, and have dealt with the same things in terms of transitioning to a new club, we certainly enjoy playing with each other. We have a good relationship on and off the pitch so hopefully, that’s beginning to come out on the football pitch.

“You want to do as well for yourself as you do for your strike partner, ultimately, when you are a partnership, you want each other to do well to maintain your places in the team."
