PRESS | Defender Ryan Inniss Pre Salford League Clash

1 November 2019

Despite impressing in the backline for Newport County AFC, defender Ryan Inniss is looking to make more of an impact in the opposition box.

The 24-year-old is yet to score in his seven appearances for the Exiles but he admitted it is something he is aiming to change with his next chance coming against Salford City at Rodney Parade tomorrow.
 
"On a personal note I should be scoring more," the loanee confessed.
 
"I'm a presence in both boxes but if you look at my CV I haven't scored a lot of goals.
 
"I'm getting on the end of a lot of things at the moment so I'm hoping to produce more goals. 

"[The strikers] are good players, that's their job to score goals but if we can add goals to the team it is only going to make us better.

"I feel like I am attacking it better and with more belief, that is something I have gained here.
 
"I am going up there with a willingness to get on the end of it even if it's to put it back across goal or try put it in the net.
 
"I'm waiting for that first one and when it comes hopefully I can go on a little run."
 
The main objective for Inniss, and the Club, is to bounce back from the 3-1 defeat at Colchester United last weekend and continue the remarkable unbeaten run at Rodney Parade, which currently stands at 15 league games.
 
"That wasn't us last week. It hurt me, it hurt the boys and obviously we want to bounce back," said Inniss.
 
"We're strong at home and I'm really looking forward to getting back out there.
 
"When you step out at Rodney Parade it feels a little different.
 
"It is like anything in life, not just football, when you build up momentum the train keeps on rolling and we want to keep that going. 

"I just think it has built up a reputation because at home we are a hard team to play."
 
The Exiles are only three points off the top of the SkyBet League Two table but that isn't something that surprises Inniss.
 
"I've played against Newport before, I knew what type of team they were in terms of character," he added.
 
"In terms of the players I saw before I came here and especially since being here being up there is no surprise."
