Callum Lang Post Southend United

18 September 2019

Town's number 9, Callum Lang scored his first goal in a blue and amber shirt on Tuesday evening as Town scored four and took away all three points.

Lang made his home debut against Southend and his goal proved to be the winner after a late third goal from Southend.

"It's nice to get off the mark and it's like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders but the ball into me was put on a plate for me so I had to put it away for the team. It was a great team performance and going forward I thought we were ruthless. I think we were disappointed to concede three goals, but we got the win and that was the important thing." Callum said.

Tuesday night under the lights was an exciting game after a seven-goal thriller between both teams. "It was an exciting game and we want to get forward as much as we can, and we are solid at the back and we want to get back to that and we want to keep scoring goals."

Town created so many chances for each other and managed to finalise the end product by putting four past Southend. "There was a few today where the defenders just nicked it in front of me but we're creating the chances and we just need to keep doing that and I'm sure we will be successful."

Jason Cummings and Callum Lang both started the game together as a strike partnership. "He's had a great start as well, so we're both looking to come into the team and score goals. We're both working hard. We're similar types of players, we work hard up front and we get about so we're thinking it could work nicely and keep working hard and the three points is most important."

Sam has big decisions to make as he now has around six strikers to choose from when they are all fit. "I think if you want to be successful in this league you need to have a strong strike force, so we'll all push each other on and keep working and hopefully we'll all push each other forward."

Lang is still settling in and getting used to Town life. "The boys have been great. The first day I came in they all welcomed me. The gaffer as well, he's a big reason as to why I come to the club, he's welcomed me in straight away and I'm really enjoying it."

Since Callum has been involved with Town, they have an extra four points on the board. "It's a good start, we'd be disappointed we didn't take three points last game but it's one of those games. It was tough, they didn't give us much first half to work with, then the last ten minutes it opened up but we got it right today and we got three points and we're looking to take that forward and get three points Saturday."

Callum joined Town on a season-long loan from Wigan Athletic. "I want to get game time and score as many goals as possible and move forward with this team, I think looking around the dressing room we've all got a lot of ambition and if we all put that together we can have a good season and see where it takes us."

"I enjoyed my time in the last two loans, it's been the best two years of my life and I want to carry that on and keep on enjoying my football and I think it's a great club to come and do it at. The lads have been great for me and the gaffer, so, yeah it's been a good night."

Hopefully, Lang will get on the scoresheet again Saturday as Town travel to Rotherham United.
