Virtue: I Can Get More Goals

Midfielder Aims To Build On Equaliser At Accrington

22 September 2019

Matty Virtue hopes his goal against Accrington Stanley will be the first of many this season, given the way he likes to get forward.

The midfielder, who struck a 92nd minute equaliser at the Wham Stadium, believes his current role in the side will present him with plenty more opportunities.

“I feel like I can get goals and I feel I can get forward from midfield, especially with Jay being more of a deeper player. That allows me to push forward and I did that against Accrington. I think I can come into this team and bring goals,” Virtue said.  

His appearance at Accrington was his second league start of the campaign, with the 22-year-old having to bide his time following an injury-hit start to the summer.

“Nobody wants to get injured in pre-season, especially with a new manager coming in. You want to put your mark on the team and get that run in the team. I didn’t really have that, and I’m only really getting that now,” he admitted.

“I’ve now had two games in a week, and this was my first 90 minutes. Hopefully I can kick-on from there.”
