McClure has the midas touch

19 November 2013

Matt McClure is rediscovering his goalscoring touch, according to Chairboys chief Gareth Ainsworth.


"It was a great finish and that's what Matt McClure does. He's definitely back to his form and scoring goals."

"He was one of the bright sparks on Saturday,” said the 40-year-old.

The 22-year-old has found the net twice in his last 81 minutes on the field and will be looking to add to that in the FA Cup first-round replay at Crewe Alexandra tonight. McClure didn’t start against
Cheltenham Town at the weekend after coming at half-time of the cruel JPT defeat at the hands of Swindon Town 
due to a head injury.
Ainsworth said: "The injury came into the bearing of team selection and it's something maybe I regret now.
"Matt didn't have concussion, he was never diagnosed with concussion. He had dizziness and loss of memory, but the medical opinion was he never had concussion at
Swindon
.
"If Matt had had concussion, you have to have a week before you can be considered again. He was OK to play.

"He's got a big swelling on the back of his head. I didn't want to risk him with what's been in the news lately.

"I had to stick him on in the second half and I thought he did well when he came on. He changed things a little bit and he's prone to get a goal and he showed what a striker he is."
