Ryan Inniss post bradford win

Defender Ryan Inniss spoke to the media following NCAFC's immense 2-1 victory over Bradford City at Rodney Parade.

Ryan Inniss was delighted to get on the scoresheet as Newport County AFC beat Bradford City and has challenged himself to add more goals to his game. 

The centre back, on loan from Crystal Palace, cancelled out Clayton Donaldson’s lofted header for his first goal of the season. 

The 24-year-old was also involved in the second goal, causing problems at the near post at a corner that led to Scot Bennett stroking the loose ball home.

That proved to be the winner and Inniss feels that was just what the team deserved after recent performances.

“We feel like we’ve been knocking on the door. We feel like we’ve been playing better but just not getting the results we desire,” he said.

“It could be us trying too hard but we are over the moon to get that win and try and kick on especially after the cup game, which we felt we played well in and could have got a result.”

It was the perfect response from County, and Inniss, following Wednesday night, and now he hopes more goals will follow. 

“I wanted a penalty, I stepped up with conviction and missed, it was a poor penalty but I got rid of that the next day,” he added.

“It is what this game is about and I was extra pumped to try and make a contribution.

“I feel like I can offer a lot more in terms of [in] the opposition’s box so hopefully I can go on a run now. 

“I’ve been almost trying too hard. Someone of my stature and the way I attack the ball I should be getting five or six a season.

“The longer the season has been going on I’ve definitely been creating the chances so I feel I’ve been letting them down a little bit but it’s almost like I’ve been snatching at things, trying to take the net off and the one that hits me goes in. 

“Hopefully I can relax now and nick a few more but I’ll definitely be pushing myself to contribute more for the team."
