Crawley Town defender delighted with scoring return to the side - interview on Reds Player
Sonny Bradley had plenty of reasons to be cheerful after Reds’ 5-1 win over Barnsley on Saturday gave us hope of avoiding relegation from League One.
The win lifted us up a place to 22nd and Sonny scored his first goal for the club and his first anywhere since netting for Portsmouth last April in a 4-4 draw against Bury in League Two.
More importantly, the defender was back in the side for the first time since the 2-2 draw against MK Dons and he was in his preferred central defensive role, having played only five times previously in the heart of the defence this season with his other five appearances coming at left back.
Sonny said: “I think Joe (Walsh) has been our most consistent player this season so to lose him for three games is a blow but it’s an opportunity for me and one I’m determined to take.
“The goal was nice but it was far more important for us to win the game and to do so in the way we did, with five goals, will be fantastic for confidence.
“We know we still have a lot to do to stay in this league, but after conceding five against Doncaster last Tuesday and bouncing back the way we did shows we’re moving in the right direction and I want to be as big a part of that as possible.”
