Midfielder Antoni Sarcevic has said he was delighted to get his opening goal of the season as he knows he’s had to wait a while for it, and it was all the sweeter because he knows it enabled us to get a very deserved point from Sheffield United.

Speaking to the Official Site after he grabbed his first ever League One goal, he explained.

‘I was very pleased to get my first league goal of the season and very happy with the performance of the lads. I’m more than happy to get that first goal and I want to just kick on now. We were comfortable during the game and I didn’t think they were putting any sort of real pressure on us, and in the second half we completely outplayed them.’

Having worked his way back into the team and drawn praise from manager Graham Alexander for his efforts, he went on in the interview to admit that he was ‘loving things’ again at the minute and he’s happy to be playing well and contributing to the team, so for him it’s about maintaining that now and getting back his more regular goal touch and he showed last season.

Returning to the team at left back was also Danny Andrew who capitalised on a Stephen Crainey injury to put in an impressive showing, and with the manager crediting him for that performance and his patience and hard work on the training ground, he was obviously delighted to have taken the opportunity to impress again.

‘It’s unfortunate that Stephen was unable to play due to injury, but it opened a door for me and that’s how football goes. We made a bit of a slow start conceding early on but overall I think we deserved to take something away from the game.’

Andrew goes on to say that personally for him it was great to get 90 minutes again, and he was full of credit to the team and Sarcevic for his goal, and said fighting back like that and performing like that against a side of United’s quality shows the confidence and spirit within the camp and he’s just hoping he can kick on from here now and get more game time again.
