McClure's making his mark

28 January 2013

Matt McClure says being more relaxed in front of goal is one of the main reasons for his fine scoring form.

McClure is the Wanderers’ top marksman so far this season with eight league goals and those efforts have come at a superb average of just over 102 minutes per strike.

“I’d have liked to have had a few more and I’m sure there will be a few to come before the end of the season,” he told Chairboys Player.

“I think I’m playing quite well and it’s just nice to get the games to be honest. I was saying to Gaz that this is the first time I’ve played more than 10 games in about three years.

“It’s probably a bit of luck as well because I was getting the chances, but not taking them. I think I was too eager to score when I was a bit younger, but I’ve calmed down a bit since I got my first goal - hopefully they keep coming now.”

McClure missed Wanderers’ 1-0 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge last time out to be present for the birth of his baby girl Layla, but the 21-year-old admitted that the Chairboys were never far from his thoughts.

He said: “I kept checking my phone (for the score) at the hospital. It was nice for Woody to get a goal after his performances in recent weeks.

“All the boys gave me pats on the back when I came back into training and it was nice, but it’s back to work.”
