Match preview- Myles Arnold
2 October 2020
Midfielder Myles Arnold previews the Meadowmen’s league trip to Wednesfield, their third game of the 2020/21 campaign.
So far, the Meadowmen have picked up an opening day draw against Worcester Raiders and fell to defeat 1-0 away at Shifnal Town, they will be looking to pick up their first three points on Saturday.
Arnold has had a whirlwind of an experience at the club, playing under a few different managers and systems and believes that there’s no reason for the club’s winning mentality to change.
On Saturday’s opponents:
“I think they will be one of the few sides that even when not at their best, they will manage to pick up wins. Obviously, to do well on the road is always tougher, it presents challenges that maybe we aren’t too prepared for but if we stick together and play the way the gaffer wants us to, I think there’s not much that won’t go our way this season.
“We know what they’re about and there’s no room for error in this league. We think we know what it takes to beat them and will give it everything to do so on Saturday.”
On getting the first win of the season:
“I’ve been here for a while now. I’ve seen new managers come in and implement their system on the squad. I think it’s clear that all the new managers can think about is the first win they pick up. We’ve won already and the feeling was great, but those were in the cup competitions, the league is a different ball game.
“It’s a long, hard season and the players are all aware what it means for the gaffer and his staff to get that first three points. It will come and I assure you we will all give 100% to make sure it’s sooner rather than later.”
On his position changes:
“I’m used to playing everywhere. To be honest, I don’t really care where I am on the pitch, I will give 100% for my club and work hard every game to hopefully be involved in the success at AFC Bridgnorth.
“I think since he’s come in (Ward), there has been a boost not only in the changing room, but all around the club. Supporters are coming back in, players are enjoying playing their football again and everyone wants this club to do well. You just have to look at Buxton, Hartlebury and Knowles, they’ve already been here and could definitely play at a higher level. They just live and breathe AFC Bridgnorth and with players like that, you can’t go wrong.”
