Clarke-Harris: "It Was A Big Win"

7 April 2014

Jonson Clarke-Harris smashed two goals on Saturday to help seal a vital victory for Latics against Bradford City.

The striker, who signed for the club in the summer, notched his seventh and eighth goals of the campaign and he described his emotions after the game.

"I definitely enjoyed that one," he said. "It was a big game and a massive three points for us. It's another game unbeaten. We've got something to build on and all the boys are confident. We're all up for the fight so that's how it is."

Speaking about both of his goals, the 19-year-old admitted to seeing neither goal and used his instincts to steer the ball past the goalkeeper.

"I didn't even look at the goal. I knew where the goal was and hit it with full power. Soon as it went in, I looked over to the linesman and saw it was onside so I was buzzing," expressed the youngster.

"For the second goal I just opened up my legs, which the gaffer has been telling me to do all season, and today I showed what I had in my locker. If I use my pace and power, I can get a couple of goals from it."

With the club unbeaten in five games, the striker was quick to praise the defence and spoke of his admiration for Adam Lockwood. "He's a proper leader and someone I look up to as a player. It's someone I really listen to as well," admitted Clarke-Harris.
