Striker delighted to get first two senior goals but disappointed to get knocked out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy
Cauley Woodrow was delighted to get his first two goals in senior football, but admits it doesn’t make up for defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Woodrow bagged twice in the space of three minutes to give Blues a 2-1 lead, before the Daggers road back to win 5-2 at Roots Hall.
The striker, who only came on at half-time, says it was great to score twice, but was disappointed it didn’t help Blues to a win.
He said: “I was delighted to get my first two goals in senior football. It’s been a little while coming and I missed a couple of chances at Oxford on Saturday so it was nice to put that behind me.
“When we went 2-1 we needed to protect that lead for a while and then build on it, but we allowed them to get back into the game.
“We’ve got to do better defending set pieces because they have cost us again this evening and that is a big disappointment.
“Obviously for me it was great to score twice but I’m gutted that we didn’t win the game and get into the next round of the competition.
“It’s probably the craziest game I’ve played in but we should never have allowed them to get four goals in such a short amount of time.
“Once that has happened it’s always tough to get yourself back into the game.”
The striker hopes his display in the second half has done enough to earn him a starting place against Burton Albion on Saturday.
“We’re all disappointed to be out of the cup but now we’ve got to put this behind us and focus on our next game,” he said.
“It was a great performance on Saturday and I was pleased to be back in the starting line-up.
“Hopefully the two goals against Dagenham will have helped boost my chances of starting against Burton at the weekend.
“It’s important we bounce straight back from the defeat and try and make it two wins in a rwo in the league.”
