Interview with Forfar Athletic’s David Cox


David Cox was delighted to grab the winner against Clyde after having to settle for setting up the winning goal the previous week.

The 27 year old nodded home Jamie Bain’s cross in the last minute to seal the side’s second 4-3 win in a row and ensure they kept their seven point lead at the top of League Two.

Speaking after the game, the attacker spoke of his joy at the victory and feels his hard work in training is now paying off.

“It was such a fantastic win, we had a great start to the game but after we scored I felt we stopped playing a bit. To be fair to the boy it’s a great strike from him and with the header we need to better defending wise with that but it was good to pull it back, it was the same again last week the boys dug in and it just shows what kind of character we have in the team.”

He continued: “It was brilliant to get the winner, like I said last week obviously we came from behind again and it was good to set Swanks up for the winner but to get the winner today was great. We’ve worked in training trying to get me to stay in the middle and stop wandering around the pitch as much, it’s proved it’s working so long may it continue.”

The former Airdrie man believes he is excelling after moving up to a striker position with four goals since the beginning of November but feels he can perform whether it is there or out on the wing.

“I wouldn’t say I have a preference really, because I’m quite pacy and that I can play on defender’s shoulders in this league if you’re quick enough you can outpace most defenders. I do like playing in both positions I can put away my fair share of goals as well so it’s just a case of it being hard going from one position to another and getting changed every game.”

“Now I’m in a settled position however and I’ve spoken to the gaffer so we’re working on things in training and that, everything is coming together so setting up goals, scoring goals, the boys are doing absolutely brilliant.”

Cox also reckons squad morale is at a high at the moment, pointing to the side coming back from 3-2 two games in a row as a sign of the team’s strength.

“It’s a great dressing room, great bunch of boys and it just shows there, last week as well, how we can just pull together after being 3-2 down in both games near the end and to bring it back to get the win. It was a great turnout from the fans today as well, they were brilliant and the boys are loving it.”
