Davis delighted to make an impact with two goals

IT was a delighted Ash David who scored his first two competitive goals for Blyth Spartansin the win at Matlock Town on Saturday.

The former Whitby Town man said: “It feels good, really good.

“It’s been a few weeks I’ve been waiting and I’m really happy it’s happened.

“I came on at a pivotal point in the game when they had the lad sent off and it changed the game, so I was determined to make a difference and I’m happy to have done so.”

The striker said Spartans manager Tommy Cassidy called on him to get a goal to bring Blyth back into the game as they trailed 1-0 at the time of his introduction.

“Tommy told me to get on and get a goal, but also we changed our formation to 4-3-3. That stretched the game and allowed us more room in particular for Robbie Dale,” he added.

It meant me and Faz (Craig Farrell) got more space and we both managed to chip in with goals.”

With an FA Cup tie on Saturday at home to Workington, it is a big week for Cassidy’s men, but Davis feels both Spartans and himself personally can go into the game with confidence.

He said: “I’ve waited for my chance and I know we have two good strikers at the club with Faz and Airey.

“They’ve been doing the business and scoring so I’ve had to be patient.

“Hopefully I’ve done enough today and we can all go into the next week full of confidence.”
