After Nathan Byrne on Saturday against Carlisle, it was Joe Walsh’s turn to get the first League goal of his career against Bournemouth last night.
The defender headed home from Mat Sadler’s free kick on the stroke of half time to hand Reds a 2-0 advantage heading into the break.
Having started his first League game against Carlisle on Saturday, Joe has put in two impressive performances as Reds have picked up six points, and the youngster is determined to keep his place in the side.
Joe said: “My confidence is going up every game and it’s great to be out there playing.
“I’m getting used to the pace of the game which is great for me.
“Hopefully I can stay in the team as long as I can because I’m really enjoying playing my football at the moment.
“It was a very good team performance. They are a decent side so we had to be switched on, especially when they scored.”
Joe admits he never thought of himself as a goalscoring defender, but he’s now got two goals this season, and while he is hoping he can continue that, he knows the most important thing is clean sheets.
He added: “I was buzzing to get another goal, this time it was a header from an excellent ball in from Mat (Sadler).
“I was happy with it and I don’t care how they go in. I didn’t really see myself as a goal scorer but I’ve got two now which is great.
“The main thing though is not conceding because if you keep clean sheets then you can’t lose.
“That’s my aim every game and hopefully we can do that against Brentford on Saturday.”
