McClure: Promising signs

17 January 2014

Forward Matt McClure believes Wycombe’s performance against Morecambe has provided them with a platform to build on for the rest of the season.

“Obviously there are teams below us, but there isn’t too much difference between top and bottom in this league. Hopefully we can pick up a good run together and start taking more points.”

“Realistically now, I’ll be aiming for 15 goals, but the main thing is the team play well and we pick up points.

He said: “I’m confident I’ll better it. By how many I’m not sure, but hopefully I’ll get a few more.

Meanwhile, with six goals to his name already this term, the striker is feeling optimistic of beating his scoring record from last season where he netted 11 times in 28 appearances.

He said: “We are definitely capable of beating them. Our home form isn’t the best so we need to turn that around as well. What better place to start doing that against Oxford on Saturday.”

McClure is also confident the Chairboys can overcome high-fliers Oxford United on Saturday afternoon, despite their fine away record which has seen them unbeaten on their travels in Sky Bet League 2 all season, with six wins and four draws.

“We feel we have the characters in the squad to do it, we’ve picked ourselves up now, enjoyed Saturday and hopefully we will enjoy this weekend as well.”

“We probably went back to what we were doing last year, which got ourselves out of trouble – so that is definitely a start for what’s to come.

“The performance last Saturday summed it up with our hard work and getting into players’ faces.

“Everyone knows we came in on the Sunday after Wimbledon and had a little meeting about what we needed to put right and how we needed to go about things,” said the 22-year-old.

Although the Blues were pegged back late on, McClure was pleased with the team’s overall showing and believes morale is now high in the Adams Park dressing room.

Despite taking the lead through a Paris Cowan-Hall header on 41 minutes, the home side equalised with 12 minutes remaining through Kevin Ellison.

Wanderers put in an encouraging display at the Globe Arena, picking up a vital point against the promotion-chasers in a 1-1 draw.
