Grant learning from Gaz

5 October 2012

Joel Grant says he is thriving under the tutelage of fellow winger and caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth.

Wanderers host Torquay United on Saturday (k.o 3pm) in the club’s first Community Day of the season and Grant, who returned to the side on Tuesday, is looking to continue his impressive start to the campaign.

“I have a learnt a lot from Gaz and he makes the game very simple,” the 25-year-old told 1887. “Sometimes I like to complicate things and dribble, but he tells me to get my crosses in and that definitely helps. I’m looking forward to continuing under him.

“I don’t want to jinx it, but I have found a bit of consistency. One thing that has helped me is the injury that I picked up last season.

“It meant I had to work hard over the summer to get myself back and I feel a lot fitter and mentally things are a lot clearer on the pitch.

“I’m feeling good, results haven’t gone as I would have liked, but if we keep pushing we will knock a few doors down soon. 

“I’ve been a bit more direct, but again that’s down to fitness. I feel I can push the ball past people and last, not just doing it three or four times in a game. It gives you an edge on your opponent if you are fitter than him and quicker than him.” 

A full interview with Joel will be in Saturday's edition of 1887. Pick yours up for £3 from the usual outlets around the ground.
