Cornell Enjoying Number One Position

2 October 2015

Current first choice goalkeeper David Cornell is thriving under new interim boss David Dunn.

The former Swansea City goalkeeper has started every game under Dunn and is hoping to build on a positive start.

“I have enjoyed the last three games,” he said. "We’ve not got the results that we would have hoped for. We would have wanted to win one or two but I’m enjoying it myself.

"Them draws could have easily have been three points and we could be right up there. There is no time for worrying at the moment, a couple of wins and we will be flying.”

The 24-year-old has wrestled the number one shirt from youngster Joel Coleman but he admits it has not affected their relationship.

“We get on really well,” Cornell said. “He is pushing me each day to try and get that shirt back which is healthy competition.”

The players travel down to Gillingham today in preparation for tomorrow’s game and Cornell believes it will be a tough game.

“I know they are on fire at the moment,” he said. “They have won a good few games and I know one of the lads down there and he scored on Tuesday night but fingers crossed he won’t go anywhere near the goal on Saturday."
