Podge Hoping Good Form Continues

20 November 2015

Top scorer Padraig Amond is enjoying life at the club and is hoping that he continues to keep finding his scoring boots.

Speaking to Mariners PlayerHD ahead of the big game at Eastleigh on Saturday, the striker that is affectionately nicknamed ''Podge'' explained that things were going well for both himself and the team in general.

He said: ''Both as a team and individually, its going well for us at the minute.

''Obviously we had the setback a couple of weeks ago against Cheltenham but I think since then wev'e reacted really, really well.

''The most important thing is that we're scoring goals at the minute and we've been very good at the other end as well so it's been a good couple of weeks since Cheltenham.''

The 27-year-old Irishman has hit 16 goals in 19 games since joining Town over the summer, an impressive strike rate and he is now hoping to beat his goal record for a season, which he achieved in Ireland with Sligo Rovers in 2010 before moving to Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira.

He said: ''I could've had a couple more but thats maybe being very, very harsh on myself.

''Scoring 16 goals before the middle of November is a good return so hopefully there's more to come.

''I scored 24 in Ireland in half a season before I moved to Portugal so I've still got a few more to go before I reach that yet.''

Asked if he pays attention to the top scorers in the league, the striker said: ''Of course I do, yeah, I know who's ahead of me, know exactly where I am and I'm quite conscious of the fact that I'm not top at the minute.

''To be honest with you, the most important thing is that we get promoted and that's just not a cliche or just me being modest.

''If I did finish top scorer then that would only be a good thing if we get promoted.''
