Alfie loving United's start
Another stunning goal and a 2-0 win left Alfie Potter very happy on Saturday. Alfie is now joint top scorer for the U’s with three goals from six games so far this season and his fine individual goal against Burton erased any unhappy memories of last season’s visit to the Pirelli Stadium.
“It was very pleasing” Alfie told Yellow Player.” It was a hard place to go – you saw that last year when we got slaughtered. But I thought it was a very professional performance and I’m delighted with the three points”.
Alfie has now scored two brilliant goals at Burton, Saturday’s effort mirroring a similar slalom effort two seasons ago. We asked if this one was even better?
“I don’t think so” Alfie told us with a grin. “A few people said it was on a par, I can’t actually remember the start of it but it but I would have taken any goal. We seem to be winning our away games and drawing at home; if it has to be that way then so be it but hopefully the performances at home will pick up as well.”
Captain Jake Wright labelled Alfie as the most dangerous player in the division after the U’s’ third away win of the campaign, but Alfie was quick to return the praise for the United back line of Jake, Johnny Mullins, David Hunt and Tom Newey as he talked to Yellow Player under a brilliant Rainbow background:
“You see that determination every game we play. The two centre halves just chuck themselves in front of everything and the two full backs are as solid as you will get in this league. They defend first, and that is what you need. I thought they were excellent on Saturday.”
The unbeaten U’s now face another difficult away trip, this time to Cheltenham Town on Saturday. United’s wing wizard is focussed on that game and knows that nobody is getting carried away after six matches.
“We can’t get ahead of ourselves and the staff won’t allow that to happen anyway” he said. “We need to keep putting in performances like we did at Burton, don’t let the standards drop and we will be alright.”
