Surridge Looking To Continue Where He Left Off

7 December 2018

Striker Sam Surridge to looking to continue his good form after his recent injury spell.

The on-loan Bournemouth man completed his first 90 minutes away at Maidstone United on Saturday and he is looking forward to getting back to full sharpness in the upcoming weeks.

“I feel good, it's more of a relief to be honest, I had a few injury problems coming back and going out again, but I think I've finally got it sorted now.” He said.

“It's just a matter of getting my sharpness back now and then carrying on where I left off.”

Surridge has scored nine goals in all competitions making him Oldham’s top scorer so far this season.

He holds that title having been on the side-lines with three injury spells, but he believes it will be about managing himself better during the week.

“I think it's about not doing as much during the week and managing myself better.” He commented.

“Some days I'll want to do extra, and I've got to relax a little bit instead of going out and working on aspects of my game and overdoing it.

“I've just got to tone it down a little bit, but I'm still young and growing which is why I'm probably picking up these injuries.

“Hopefully they're all behind me now and I'm happy to be back.”

Surridge has been close on several occasions to making it a goal scoring return in recent weeks, but some good goalkeeping has denied him that chance.

However, having been awarded a new contract by his current club he says his confidence is still sky high and he believes the goals will start to flow again soon enough.

“I was unlucky against Maidstone on Saturday and I had that one against Lincoln where I ballooned it.

“I could have taken a couple of them chances, but as I get my sharpness back the chances will keep coming and I'm a confident person, so I know it's going to go my way.”

Latics face Crewe Alexandra tomorrow as they return to league action and Surridge thinks it will be a tough game, but one he’s confident the team can overcome.

“They play a lot of academy prospects and I know a couple of their loan players.

“It's going to be a difficult game, you don't really know sometimes what you're going to get from them.

“We're quite physically dominant so I feel like we can go and get the result.”

Oldham have been a good run as of late as they slowly climb the table as well as progressing in the Emirates FA Cup with this six-game unbeaten in full flow.

Surridge knows that the team must continue to build on this momentum and continue the run to keep on climbing up the table.
