Matty hopes winner will signal better fortunes

Have your say

WHITBY Town forward Matty Tymon is hoping his winner at Frickley will signal a change of form for him in front of goal.

Tymon climbed off the bench to grab an 89th minute goal which earned Whitby a 2-1 win as they bid to avoid relegation.

He admitted: “The goal on Monday was fortunate, it was like an instant reaction.

“I had to take it straight away and didn’t have to think about it, which helped.

“It’s been a long time since I scored and I’ve missed quite a few chances in between that, so it was just a relief really to get the goal and it turned out to be the winning goal for three points, so it was even better.

“You just think to yourself, am I ever going to score and it just carried on and carried on, but thankfully now I’ve hopefully got some confidence and if I get a chance on Saturday, I should be able to put it away and go on from there.”

The 21-year-old former Hartlepool hotshot also revealed that despite taking his place, fellow frontmen Jamie Clarke and Andy Appleby have offered nothing but support, since arriving at the club.

“They’ve both been doing well, but it is good coming on and playing with both of them - they are good and it’s easier to create chances when you’re alongside better players.

“As strikers you always talk to each other - they’ve been really just saying keep your head up and the next one will come along.

“It’s nice to have people in there who are a bit older and been there and done that and good to get that input.

“Andy Campbell’s also been a massive help, despite being injured, he’s been in and around the changing room and giving me words of advice.”

Tymon wasn’t expecting Town to be in such a poor position, but has high hopes of better times ahead, adding: “At the beginning of the season, we looked quite good, but were just throwing games away with one daft goal.

“Hopefully we can go on now and pick a few points up.”
