Josh Daniels previews Salop's fixture with Cheltenham Town

17 December 2021

Right wing-back Josh Daniels spoke to press ahead of Saturday afternoon's match at home to Cheltenham Town.

Daniels is currently enjoying his first run in the team since the start of the season and has been preparing himself for another game ahead of the busy Christmas period.

He's struggled with injuries so far this season and picked up two ankle injuries before the end of November. 

Now - with just the black eye he endured last weekend - Daniels is hoping to continue his run in the team and keep Salop's strong home form going.

On the fixture:

“We look after ourselves, we have to go in and give it our best and if we do that then there’s no reason we can’t come away with the three points.

“It [the reason the home form is so good] must be the fans because that’s the common denominator. For us last year I think it was quite opposite, we won a lot of games away from home and we couldn’t really win last year at home. It’s been a strange one for me because we went on good runs away from home around Christmas last year, but it’s been crazy with it going the opposite way. But one thing I can say is that the fans have been brilliant so long may that continue and hopefully we can get the away wins sorted.”

On his season so far:

“It’s just two impact injuries this year, one on each ankle, obviously I was out for six weeks and came back for Carlisle when Ethan [Ebanks-Landell] came off injured. I didn’t think I was going to play for as long as I did, but I’m glad I got to because I wasn’t sure in my head where I was.

“I haven’t had a run of games since last year which was tough for me. I’ve worked hard this year and pre-season was probably one of the best I’ve ever had – I felt great. It was just impact injuries that hindered me but like I said I’ve worked hard, I’m back now and if I can come in and help and do a job then that’s what I’m here for.”
