New dad James Constable on Wycombe and Rochdale
Striker James Constable will be looking for a special goal this weekend as United welcome Rochdale to the Kassam Stadium. ‘Beano’ as he is known to the United fans has scored 95 times for the U’s so far but would have loved a goal against Wycombe on Saturday to mark the arrival of baby daughter Amelia who was born last Thursday.
“She’s doing really well” Beano smiled as he talked to Yellow Player after Saturday’s game. “We are all home and well and I am delighted. Hopefully she can come and watch us soon and see a successful season. I didn’t get too many shots against Wycombe but I would have loved a goal to end a great week. Hopefully that can come next week and I can get a lot more after that as well.
“I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get more out of Saturday’s game but in the grand scheme of things it was a pretty good week” James said.
United took a point from Saturday’s game after Johnny Mullins’ injury time drive secured a 2-2 draw.
“We will look back hopefully and see it as a point gained at the end of the season” James said. “Obviously we wanted to go on and win it, and we thought we would do that when they went down to ten men but they slowed it down and made it difficult. We were delighted to pick up a point but probably felt that we should have had a bit more.”
United will take Saturday’s point and move on to face Rochdale on Saturday with James hoping that United can end a great first month with a win.
”This season is going to be tougher than ever with the teams that have come down or come up into the division. We have started really well and didn’t want to lose that unbeaten run. Hopefully this Saturday against Rochdale we can go out there and get all three points”.
