Hedges hoping to continue impressing
14th October 2014
Ryan Hedges is hoping to continue his recent good form after he helped the Under-21s to victory over Crewe on Monday.
The development squad earned back-to-back league wins for the first time this season with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Landore.
After going a goal behind in the first half, Hedges brought the scores level with a fine half volley just minutes after the interval.
Owain Jones completed the turnaround midway through the second half when he converted a Connor Roberts cross, and Hedges nearly put the game beyond doubt when he shot wide from the edge of the box.
But the striker was pleased to get himself on the scoresheet once again as he scored his second goal in three outings.
"It was a great performance from us in the second half," he said. "The first half wasn't the best, we didn't really get out of first gear.
"But after half time we looked like a different team and we picked it up and got the win.
"It was pleasing to get another goal, that's my second in three games and it was a great ball in and it sat up nicely for me.
"Towards the end of last season I wasn't bringing the form I was showing in training into games, but I think now the perseverance is showing."
Monday's win also made it two league wins on the bounce for the Under-21s and Hedges is hoping that his team-mates can continue their push up the table.
"This win is exactly what we needed," he said. "The performances have been there but we haven't quite been able to turn that into wins.
"Hopefully now we can climb the league after this."
