McGurk: Proving a point

26 March 2014

Forward pleased to grab winning goal

Burton Albion forward Adam McGurk was pleased to get back on the scoresheet as he returned to the side in Tuesday’s 1-0 against Wycombe.

McGurk’s goal was the difference between the sides, and the forward is pleased to get the points.

“Obviously we’re delighted with the three points. That’s what we want and we need the points to catch the top three. I’ve got myself on the scoresheet too so it’s been a good night all round,” said McGurk.

The Brewers were a constant threat in attack, with McGurk and Billy Kee linking up well throughout the game, something McGurk believes works well. McGurk also believes he had a point to prove after a recent spell out of the team.

“A couple of times during the season things just haven’t come off for us, but Billy and myself have a good understanding. We created a few chances and I was disappointed not to have scored a few more, but now we have to look forward to the next game.

“Any player will tell you it’s frustrating to be left out of the side, but it’s the manager’s decision. There was a case of proving a point, and it’ll be the same over the next seven games and that’s what I need to do,” McGurk said.

McGurk’s partnership with Kee was successful against the Chairboys, and McGurk is keen to make sure it continues in the same vein in the coming matches.

“Billy’s a good player and we understand each other. We knew what each other would do and we just need to keep going. It’s easy to do it in one game but it’s doing it over the next seven games and we need to keep picking up points,” he added.

McGurk was forced off with injury in the second half, but is confident he’ll be fit again for the weekend trip to York City.

“Hopefully it’s more of an impact injury. I tried to run it off but I couldn’t put any weight on my knee, but once I rest and get a bit of ice on it I should be ok for Saturday.”
