The belief has always been there at Albion

Jacques Maghoma celebrates his penalty success

Comments (0)

Hello and welcome to this week’s edition of my captain’s column.

I’m going to start by saying what a magnificent result on Saturday for the boys away at Fleetwood.

To go to one of our promotion rivals and score four was a terrific effort by all involved.

Mags (Jacques Maghoma) is continuing his terrific season by scoring another two vital goals.

I’m delighted for him that he’s getting the goals his efforts deserves because goals aside he puts so much effort into every 90 minutes he plays.

To go away and score four goals is something the boys can be proud of and take a lot of confidence from – especially with all the history of not having had the best of away records this season.

Jacques is on fire. There’s Calvin Zola and Billy Kee up top as well.

The boys at the back are also keeping clean sheets so it bodes well for the run-in.

The belief has always been there at the club.

You start every league campaign with ambitions of winning every game then suddenly you’re there in third, fourth, or fifth.

Things are going well, you’ve played everyone at least once, and start to believe in yourself even more.

You can go into the run-in having that extra belief that we are promotion material, a top seven team.

Hopefully the boys can now continue this run and win a few more.

I had a disappointing Saturday myself as we went down 2-1 at home to Barnet.

It was a game we should have never lost but are missing that little bit of luck at the moment in front of goal.

It was good on a personal level to get another 90 minutes under my belt and I’m certainly finding myself getting fitter and stronger as each and every game goes by.

York travel to Oxford on Saturday for what’s going to be another vital league game.

Let’s hope wins for the Brewers and the Minstermen will happen on Saturday.

I was looking forward to seeing Justin (Richards) on Saturday but a knee injury has shortened his season.

I’m gutted for him because in my opinion he’s still one of the best forwards in Division Two.

I want to take this opportunity to wish him a speedy recovery.

My boys from the reserve team chalked up a very impressive win away to Bury on Tuesday.

I had about six missed calls and eight messages from all the lads saying they were missing me, but it’s great to see them win, even if it is only a reserve team fixture.

A winning habit is, and should always be, a hard habit to break.

I hope you’re all enjoying my column.

It’s difficult for me writing it as a York player but I will endeavour to do my best over the coming weeks to hopefully give you a little insight into life at another football league club as well as life as an Albion player.

As always be loud and be proud!
