Freddy: I'm raring to go

22 September 2012

Striker Freddy Eastwood admitted he was disappointed to miss the start of the season following his winning goal against Exeter City.

Eastwood, making only his second appearance of the season following a calf injury, came off the bench to head home an 88th minute winner at Roots Hall.

And the former Wolves frontman hopes he can now be involved more regularly.

“I have been very disappointed as I felt that I was very close to being tiptop fit at the start of the season but I pulled my calf,” Eastwood told the official website.

“The boys have been doing well in the meantime but now I am back hopefully I can play my part in going on another run.

“I played some part today and got on the scoresheet so I am raring to go and looking forward to getting a start now.”

Eastwood’s winner came after fellow forward Barry Corr also climbed off the bench to score.

It was Corr’s first taste of action in 17 months following injury problems.

And having worked closely with the Irishman in his final weeks of rehabilitation, Eastwood was delighted to see his teammate back in scoring action.

“For the last few weeks I have been training with Barry and doing some running together,” he said.

“He has been looking good and today he made a big difference.

“My injury has only been short term but I am sure for Barry that watching all the others for so long must have been devastating for him but I am pleased for him now.”
