Clark: 'Things are positive'

28 February 2019

Jordan Clark feels that the mood in the Accrington Stanley squad has improved ahead of the visit of Coventry on Saturday.

The Reds are undefeated in their last three games, scoring seven goals in two draws and one win, after a run of six league matches without a goal.

Clark believes that Stanley have now turned a corner.

“It's a better situation than it was a few games ago,” said the winger. “Things are positive. Two draws and a win is obviously better than not scoring in six games and struggling like we were.

“Against Sunderland we got back to playing the way we had done earlier on in the season, confident passing out from the back, and then started scoring the goals which we'd been missing. Scoring four against Oxford was obviously good for us as attacking players too.

“You always want to win your home games and then pick points up away from home, so Saturday against Coventry, and then Tuesday against Blackpool, will be two tough games but we'll be looking to pick up all six points.

“The atmosphere will be great, they both fetch a good away following so they'll be good games to play in.

“We're looking forward now. A lot of us were down before, there wasn't a lot of confidence around the place, but that's back now and we're scoring goals.”

Clark headed home his fourth league goal of the season in the Reds' 4-2 home win over Oxford last week, and admits it's eased the pressure on him.

“It's been a while!" He said.

“I had a few texts saying 'you never score with your head! Did you really!?' so that was funny. It was a diving header as well which was a first for me.

"To go so long without scoring feels awful but you've just got to keep working hard in training and when that pays off it's a big relief."
