Surridge Looking Forward To Yeovil Clash

21 August 2018

Sam Surridge is relishing the opportunity to face his old club Yeovil Town on Tuesday evening in the Sky Bet League Two fixture.

Surridge had a loan spell last season at the Glovers, scoring 10 goals in 53 appearances and he was relieved to open his account for this campaign on Saturday.

“I’m happy to get off the mark, it's more of a relief to get the first goal along with the first win of the season, so happy days.” He said.

The young striker missed the games against Forest Green Rovers and Derby County, but he says he is fully fit despite a niggling problem that has affected him.

“It's an ongoing knock, it's just as the season goes on it's going to get better and better so it’s all good I feel fine.” He commented.

“I was actually supposed to play less than I did the other day, but I wanted to carry on and keep going and it'll keep getting better, so I’ll be good for the game.”

Despite moving on from Yeovil, Surridge still has fond memories of his time and appreciated the time he spent at Yeovil.

“I know the manager well and he was good for me last year when I was there, I had good times and bad times like you do at any other club but, overall I enjoyed it and I learned a lot from being at the club.

“I am I'm looking forward to seeing everyone, but obviously my focus is with Oldham, so I want to go there and take the three points home.”

Yeovil picked up an impressive win away at Notts County and Surridge knows how hard of a test it’ll be on Tuesday evening.

“It's going to be a tough one, they got a good result against Notts County on Friday and they're strong at home which I know from experience.

“They’ll be looking to build on it, but so are we so we’re hoping to go there and get the three points.”
