Cassidy: “It’s A Great Club With Fantastic Fans.”

10 August 2015

Striker Jake Cassidy is full of confidence after his assist and fine performance on Saturday against Walsall.

The summer recruit from Wolverhampton Wanderers held the ball up well, brought others into play and crossed for Jonathan Forte to level seven minutes from time.

The 22-year-old, speaking after the game, said: "I’m enjoying myself now, it’s a great bunch of lads and a great club with fantastic fans, like you have seen today. I just want to concentrate on my football as I have no distractions off the pitch so I’m really looking forward to this season.

"It was great character from the lads and it was a never say die attitude. We started slow but we grew into the game and from 30 minutes onwards we were the better team and got our reward in the end.

"We are happy with the point considering the position we were in. We have to build on that now on to Wednesday and then on to next Saturday.”

The striker also praised the finish from last season’s top goalscorer Forte and Cassidy believes he can build up a good understanding with the forward.

“It was instinct to know he was going to be there and tap it home so thankfully we scored,” he commented.

"It was a fantastic finish. He had to caress it in as it had a lot of pace on the ball. I told him it was a fantastic finish considering the pace and the dip on the ball. I’m just glad he came on and scored.”

Attention now turns to Wednesday night as Middlesbrough are the visitors in the Capital One Cup.

“It will be a different game to today,” Cassidy admitted. “We are expecting a very attacking team in Middlesbrough and we will set our stall out in training this week and hopefully we can beat them.”
