PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT FOR McGEEHAN AT WYCOMBE

8 February 2016

The midfielder hit 10 for the season with his spectacular effort

Hatters goal-scorer Cameron McGeehan was delighted that shooting practice paid dividends on Saturday as he hit double-figures for the season against Wycombe.

The midfielder scored a wonder strike to notch the only goal of the game five minutes before the break, looping home a half-volley from 25 yards after the Town were under pressure for large periods of the first half.

The youngster was pleased to net the side’s winner, his 16th in Hatters colours, doing his part for the team as well as increasing his own personal tally in front of goal.

“It was a tough first 20 minutes and we needed a bit of magic to kick us on," McGeehan said. "Luckily the ball fell to me, and I’ve been practicing my shooting every day, scoring a few goals this season and it was a good strike.

“I was happy to get a goal for the team. With those ones they can sometimes go into Row Z at Kenilworth Road so it was nice for this one to nestle in.”

The visitors didn’t have it all their own way at Adams Park, being forced to dig-in in the opening half hour to keep the game goalless against the then eight-placed Wycombe.

But Nathan Jones’ side soon settled into their rhythm, putting together good passing moves before McGeehan opened the scoring.

McGeehan added: “We didn’t start well as a team, and we weren’t able to get it down and pass it as we have in the past few weeks, but that’s credit to Wycombe. 

“We’ve seen they’ve been successful over the past couple of seasons. They’re a tough team to play and we knew that coming here, but we probably didn’t deal with it as well as we could have. 

“But once we did we were able to get a foothold and did quite well.”

The Hatters came out stronger in the second half, limiting the hosts to just one shot on target all game to stretch their all-time unbeaten run at Adams Park to 11 games.

And McGeehan feels Jones’ half-time words had a strong influence on the Town’s second successive victory away from home.

“It was good to score before half-time. It changed the game around a bit, but we were coming into the game five or ten minutes before that,” he added.

“We managed to come out in that second half and battle. We could have played better than that as a team but sometimes you have to come to places like Wycombe and grind out a result.

“The gaffer said to us we need to win that battle all over the pitch, hold the ball up better, and we didn’t in the first as well as we could have. Once we did that in the second half and stuck to our men, we managed to nullify their threat.”
