Wright delight as he ends week on high

7 October 2017

Last action hero Danny Wright was delighted to finish a 'difficult week' on a high as he scored a stunning stoppage time winner to help Cheltenham claim a 2-1 derby day victory over Swindon Town.

Wright has been forced to endure a mixed week after he was sent off against Forest Green Rovers in the mid-week defeat in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The striker then saw a second half penalty against Swindon saved after climbing off the bench. 

But the hitman was to have the final word with a sensational winner deep into added time to send Cheltenham into the top half of Sky Bet League Two. 

“It had been a week to forget until the last minutes of that game, but you have got to keep plugging away and football can be a funny old game,” he said.

“It fell nicely for me and there was no chance of me missing that one – everybody was going in the net along with the ball.

“It’s been a disappointing week, but to end it on a high is a positive and we can build on that; for me personally and for the lads.

“The penalty wasn’t in the corner and I felt I rushed it. Usually I build some tension for the goalkeeper and slot him the other way.

“Tuesday night was stupid from me,” he added. “I have got to learn from that and it can’t happen again. Fortunately, I was available today. I never go out to hurt anybody, it’s an incident and I’ve got to prove it.

“To end the week on a high is a big turnaround. It’s a big positive at the end of a difficult week and it just goes to show you have got to keep plugging away.”

Cheltenham have now picked up four league wins in five games and Wright wants that momentum to keep going.

“We are looking good with a few wins on the bounce,” he said. “It’s definitely better than it was a month ago, but this can’t stop. We’ve not achieved anything yet.

“We’ve got a game that can get us to the top end of the table and we’ve got to keep producing.”
