Wing-back pleased with recent displays
Paul Dixon is set to make his 50th Huddersfield Town start this weekend and the defender believes that Town fans are finally starting to see his real ability.
The Scotland international has been a regular in the side over the last couple of months and is becoming a key component in Mark Robins’ 3-5-2 formation.
The winger has picked up his first assists of the season in the past few weeks and set up the winner against Grimsby in the FA Cup.
Speaking to htafc.com, he said: “The Manager wants me to get forward, which suits me because that it is what my game is all about. The Town fans are seeing the real Paul Dixon at the moment; I used to produce these kind of performances week in, week out for Dundee. I love creating chances and getting crosses into the box, whereas my shots are just me hoping!
“I have had a decent run in the side and I am enjoying my football. As the old cliché goes I am taking each game as it comes and trying to perform to the best of my ability. So far it is working out and I hope that it can continue until the end of the season.”
Dixon had to fight off competition from Jake Carroll for the left-back berth at the start of the season and admitted that at times it was tough.
“I just got my head down and worked hard,” he said. "When a chance came my way I grabbed it with both hands. One weekend I wasn’t involved in the squad at all and I spent it at home, which does start to put doubts in your head. I managed to get back in though, and have just continued to work hard.”
And on an international recall, he said: “I am not thinking about Scotland, I am only concentrating on Huddersfield Town. I want to stay in the team and get Town as high up the table as possible. If a Scotland call-up happens then I will be delighted, but I need to play well at club level for that to happen.”
