Lang Looking To Continue Good Form

1 March 2019

Forward Callum Lang is hoping he can continue his purple patch of form when Oldham Athletic take on Stevenage tomorrow afternoon.

Lang has grabbed himself 11 goals in all competitions so far this season, including three in his last three games.

However, he says that scoring goals without coming away with victories takes the sweetness of finding the net.

“If we look at things on a more positive note and selfishly in my case, there's been goals for me.” He said.

“But obviously it isn't as good of a feeling when you don't get the result you wanted like Crewe and Bury.

“We want to be winning them games, but obviously we haven't so it's frustrating.

“In terms of myself I just need to take my form into these upcoming games and hopefully we can get those results.”

Across the course of the season it has been obvious to everyone how much playing football means to Lang.

He is someone who gives out a variety of emotions on the pitch and Lang merely puts that down to his personality.

“If you get beat it affects you a lot, it certainly ruins my weekend and I've always wanted to give everything for the shirt.” He commented.

“I think that away support at the weekend deserved more, yeah Bury were a good side, but we got to 70 minutes without conceding then they scored three.

“It wasn't good enough, but I think when we have travelling support like that you want to give them something back.”

With the arrival of Paul Scholes in the manager’s hotseat, Lang says it is an exciting time for everyone at the club.

After his first full week of training, Lang believes that the new manager is starting to get his ideas across, and the players are gradually learning the more time they spend on the training pitch.

“It's exciting when a manager like him comes in, you've got to give him a lot of respect for what he did in his career.

“It's been great for us, we're gradually learning from him and hopefully we can all learn more until the end of the season.”

Over the course of the past week, former Latics loanee Sam Surridge made his Premier League debut for Bournemouth.

Lang says he was delighted for his former teammate and he said he has his own personal ambitions to play at the highest level he possibly can.

“I think as younger lads, it's all our aims to play as high as possible in the leagues.

“It's good to see someone that you've played with make it to that level and I wish him all the best.”
