Our goal scorer at the weekend Joel Lynch has looked back to the Watford match and called on the team to keep this run going when we face Middlesbrough this weekend.

Having played a key role in our victory, Lynch told the Official Site that he was hoping the team can show further improvement at our next time of asking.

Lynch was making his return having missed six games with a groin problem, he lined up to make his 200th start of his career and scored the overhead kick that helped win us all three points.

‘I’m sure a lot of people wrote us off ahead of Saturday’s game, but I thought the lads were first class. Going into the game everyone around the squad was positive and in the game the work ethic was excellent. I’m sure everyone thought ‘here we go again’ when Watford pulled a goal back, but we really stuck together and got through it.’

He goes on to call it a ‘great’ three points for us given the run of form that Watford have had results wise, and he calls them one of the best teams in the division so to take a three one victory with the performance we put in was great for us, and hopefully it really can be a sign of things to come.

‘I thought we were the better side, we outplayed them. We defeated a top Championship side that will be up there come the end of the season.’

Speaking a little bit about his goal, he said that finding the net after being out for so long was a boost to him and he knows he can take a lot of confidence from it and he’s hoping he can get himself on a run, just as the team can now.

With manager Chris Powell making four changes for the game, he said that he felt the players coming in certainly made an impact.

‘I thought Oscar Gobern came in and did fantastically well given it was his first start of the season, he played a key role in the second goal. His performance summed up our game. The lads coming into the team are doing exactly what is asked of them. As long as everyone comes in and gives 100%, I think we’ll continue to get results.’

With a good run of form at home of late, Lynch ended his interview by calling on the lads to keep that going in our next game, and give ourselves an uplift in away form as we face Middlesbrough and then Wigan.

‘We’ve got seven from the last possible nine and that’s a little run we want to keep going. Now we have to be more solid on the road, because it’s all about getting points away. We’re going into Saturday’s game in a positive frame of mind.’
