Jaden Brown featured in Town’s latest B Team game against Salford City
- Jaden Brown benefitting from positive attitude
- Defender impressed against Salford City with Town B
- Youngster netted both Town goals
Jaden Brown expressed the importance of having a great attitude and the opportunities that hard work can present after scoring two goals in the B Team’s defeat to Salford City on Saturday afternoon.
The 21-year-old has excelled so far this season, flourishing in the Club’s B Team, as well as making several appearances in the First Team.
Brown believes that having the correct attitude is important to be able to progress into the First Team picture.
“When you play these types of games you get judged a lot on your attitude and how you perform, and I feel that these games are important.
“I want to be playing First Team football, I want more minutes, so these games mean a lot to me.
“Scoring twice does boost my confidence, and it was also getting 90 minutes into my legs – I feel stronger, I feel I could go again if I am honest.
“You can never be too content or too happy or too low, so when there are a few weeks where I don’t play, I will go harder, and when there are a few weeks that I do come on I still have to go hard.
“With Carlos Corberán, it just shows that everyone can get a chance if they work for it – like Pat Jones coming on in the past few games.
“When we play these games, everyone has got to be their best because it’s not just any friendly game, it means a lot, and we can showcase ourselves to the coaches and everyone else watching.
“I know what position I am in, I know what situation I am in, so if I go into this game with the wrong mindset, it is only going to knock me down a few steps.
“The main thing is about attitude and working hard. Even today on the pitch some things didn’t come off for me, but as long as I know that I have worked hard and I have worked my hardest, that’s not a problem because we work on the errors.”
Brown scored two superb first-half goals for the B Team in Saturday’s 4-2 defeat against Salford City.
His first was a brilliant bullet-header after making a late run into the area, with his second being a deep, sumptuous run and a drilled effort across the goalkeeper.
The defender stated that his effort came from something that Jon Worthington instructed him to do, as well as admitting that he was disappointed that the Young Terriers were not able to finish the game off against the Ammies.
“It was just what the gaffer wants me to do really; pass and run forward.
“For the first goal I passed, went forward, and made the box because you never know, it could fall to you. The second goal I did exactly the same – passed and ran forward.
“It felt good to score two goals but, at the same time, we didn’t win the game.
“I felt in the first half we could have taken more of our chances and I think if we were more ruthless, then that would have killed the game off in the second half.
“I thought we controlled the ball the better, but we just didn’t defend well enough in the right moments.
“I was a little disappointed because they saw our threats in the first half and made it harder to break them down in the second half.”
