Wood: Points are all that matter

21 January 2013

Match-winner Sam Wood has played down his role in the Wanderers' 1-0 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge.

Wood struck his first goal at Adams Park and second of the season to secure a hard-fought win for the Chairboys.

However, he said that it didn’t matter who scored the goal, so long as the Blues took home all three points.

“I’m not really known for my goalscoring, it’s just on the odd occasion,” Wood told Chairboys Player. “Normally it’s a big occasion though like the first game of the season.

“It’s nice to score and everyone wants to score goals, but I’m a team player and it’s all about getting the three points.

“It doesn’t matter who scores for me, but it is nice to get on the scoresheet.”

Wood has been outstanding for the Blues since joining in the summer and has proved equally adept at left-back or left-midfield.

The 26-year-old has also forged a superb relationship with the Adams Park faithful after a string of impressive and committed displays.

He said: “We spoke in the dressing room about the fans clearing the ground and we said we would do it for them.

“We all worked hard and it was a great move for the goal. It sat up nicely, was a great strike and its gone into the back of the net.

“Gaz told us on Friday that it was going to be on. He told us to prepare properly so no-one had any doubt about it. We prepared as normal and it’s paid off as we got the three points.

Wood added: “Dave (Winfield) said after the game that last year they didn’t get many clean sheets or 1-0 wins and they normally ended up 1-1 or losing.

“It’s a great feeling - we’ve kept a clean sheet, got three points and obviously we are moving up which is what we want to do.”
