Gordon Keen to Prove He's No Flash in the Pan

12:30 pm Thursday, 30 August 2018
Summer signing Josh Gordon has spoken to the press following his goal-scoring performance during the midweek Carabao Cup defeat to Macclesfield Town, and discussed his determination to prove his worth whenever he is given the chance to play.
Gordon, who joined Walsall for an undisclosed fee on Transfer Deadline Day, has been unable to make the breakthrough to the Saddlers starting line-up as fellow summer signings Andy Cook, and Morgan Ferrier continue to lead the line.

However, Josh, who spent last season with Leicester City's Under-23s playing in Premier League 2, also discussed the importance of progressing as a team, insisting he will do all he can to both help the team move forward, and give the gaffer a selection headache.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Josh said; "I knew what I needed to do going into the Macclesfield game. My aim was to work hard, hopefully get a goal like I did and just show the fans what I am about and show the gaffer that I can do the job. When I get on the pitch I have to take my opportunities.

"The most important thing is the team and that we are doing well. But for me personally, when I get on the pitch I have just got to do what I did against Macclesfield, get some goals and some assists as well."

The 23-year-old then went on to discuss his desire to grab more goals and help the squad to work on being more solid at the back, he continued; "It was nice to get the goal on my full debut. Hopefully there will be more to come. We are a team that is scoring lots of goals, everybody is getting goals which is great.

"But now the whole team needs to look at a few things defensively. From the forwards through to the defenders we all need to do our bit to cut out some of the goals we have been conceding."

Gordon then spoke about how quickly he has settled into the set-up at Banks's Stadium, going on to praise manager, Dean Keates, he added; "It’s really good to be here. All the lads have welcomed me. Everyone is near enough the same age, so I have settled in really quickly.

"It is all about learning now and progressing as a player. And Dean has been massive, as have the coaches and everyone behind the scenes, it has been really good."
