Goldson: "It's a massive game"

28 January 2014

Connor looking to bounce back against Colchester

Connor Goldson insists the Shrewsbury Town squad are determined to earn Mike Jackson his first points as caretaker manager at Colchester United tonight.
Goldson admitted the players were "gutted" to come away from Swindon with no reward after a much improved performance on Saturday.
Now it's next stop Colchester as Town attempt to climb out of the bottom four in League One.
Goldson said: "It's a massive game. Colchester have shown that if you get a couple of wins on the bounce you go high up in the table, I think they're 12th now. A couple of back-to-back victories and I'm sure we'll be flying up the league."
Goldson, who recently returned to the Greenhous Meadow from a loan spell at Cheltenham, added: "We've got 18 games left now to keep this team in League One. We're good enough to do that and I think we've shown that so many times this season.
"Now it's about getting results and getting points to stay in this league. Nobody here wants to get relegated and nobody wants to go down to League Two.
"It's up to us now to look forward towards the future, take it game by game, and see how it goes.
"We all want points for Jacko. I've worked with him now for four years. He's always been good with and helped me with my game.
"He's worked with me every day and he showed faith in me by putting me in at centre half at the weekend.
"We wanted to win that game for him and hopefully we can take that into Colchester and get three points for him."  
Goldson said he was pleased to be back at the heart of the back four at Swindon.  
"That's where I want to play," he added. "That's the reason I went to Cheltenham just to play a few games in that position, but I'm back now and I've got a chance."
