PATERSON: THE GOALS WILL COME

7 March 2016

Jamie looks ahead to Tuesday night's game

- Jamie Paterson reviews Derby defeat
- Attacking midfielder believes Town will start scoring again soon
- Paterson hopes to keep up his good record against Reading

Jamie Paterson believes it’s only a matter of time until Town gets back among the goals if the team keep performing as it did at Derby County on Saturday. 

Town has only drawn a blank in three games since David Wagner took over as Head Coach in November and Paterson believes the goals will come again soon.

"We went to Derby, which isn't an easy place to go, and we showed everyone how we can play against a good side. Sometimes we just need to take our chances. I know we've said that before, but that's all that is missing," Jamie told htafc.com.

"We went on a good run of scoring - 17 games in a row – and you are going to have these times when you can't really find the back of the net. We played really well and created chances and that's the main thing.

"The style of football we play is attacking, quick and exciting to watch and if we had gone 1-0 up or got an equaliser I think we would've gone on to win the game. It was disappointing in the end."

David Wagner's side enjoyed the most of possession and created a similar amount of chances to fifth placed Derby County at the weekend and Paterson believes it's only a matter of time before Town get the results the performances deserve.

Jamie continued: "We started well and had two or three really good opportunities in the first half. If we go 1-0 up, then we are in command as Derby will push on and that suits us. 

"They scored against the run of play in the first half, which was a disappointing goal to concede, but we never put our heads down; we kept going and played our football.”

Given the string of impressive performances during Wagner’s tenure, Jamie thinks it doesn’t matter who the opponent is on any given day.

“It doesn't matter whether someone is bought for £4 million or £100,000; matches come down to whoever puts the most effort in and plays well as a team. 

“You can see we are a really good side. I think we will get a few more wins now before the end of the season and push up the table."

Paterson has no set his sights on helping Town return to winning ways when the Club hosts Reading on Tuesday night. Interestingly, the attacking midfielder has scored in all three matches when the two sides have met this season.

"I've had a good record against them this season. Hopefully I can get another goal against them and start a little run going. We certainly won't let our heads drop and will continue doing what we are doing," said Jamie.

"We've been really unfortunate against Reading. In the FA Cup we were 2-0 up and in command, we've drawn with them at home and away and played quite well. I feel like we should've won all three of those games. 

"Hopefully we can implement the way we've played against them again, go and get the victory and score a few more goals."
