Jack Paxman: Phoenix Performance a Massive Improvement Compared to Ashford Midweek

02/12/2019

Jack Paxman has reacted to a much improved Ramsgate performance on Saturday afternoon against Phoenix Sports in the Isthmian League. 

“Saturday’s performance against Phoenix was a massive improvement from the Ashford game midweek,” Paxman said. 

“We kept our shape a lot better, we moved the ball a lot better and more importantly we didn’t give Phoenix any time on the ball which I thought was key.”

“It’s obviously disappointing to concede the own goal because I think as a defensive unit we were all very solid.”

“I thought we limited them to a slim amount of chances throughout the game but unfortunately these kind of things can happen in football; you’ve just got to forget it and move on.”

Paxman was on the scoresheet for Ramsgate for the first time this season, but the defender has admitted he’d like to score a few more.

“I’m always pleased to get myself a goal to help the team get a result, and whilst we didn’t get the three points it could be a crucial point at some point down the line.”

“No matter what position you play, the feeling of scoring a goal is great. I’d definitely like to chip in for a few more.”

“Who knows, maybe this goal can help lead to a few more this season.”

The Rams now take on Leatherhead on Tuesday night at The Southwood Stadium in a bid to progress to the last-16.

“Leatherhead will obviously be a tough game, but If we are defensively sound at the back and clinical in the final third, we will cause them a few problems.” Paxman said. 

“If we perform like we did on Saturday we can make it very difficult for them.”
