CARLOS MENDES GOMES | Every Time I Step On The Pitch I Try To Do My Best

8 December 2020

Carlos Mendes Gomes discussed his progression after scoring his second goal in two games in Saturday's defeat to league leaders, Newport County at Rodney Parade.

The 22-year-old equalised for the Shrimps in the 31st minute of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two clash, after scoring the winner in the home victory over local rivals, Barrow at the Mazuma Stadium midweek.

"I'm really happy to get another goal," said Mendes Gomes.

"I've said before that I want to add more goals to my game. Any player wants to see progression and see improvement, especially stats like goals as a forward player.

"It helps playing with Adam (Phillips), his vision and ability to execute the pass is class. It feels good to be on the pitch with him.


"I believe that in the past year I've done well in that way, obviously we had the situation throughout this year with Coronavirus, so things have been a little slow but overall I'm really happy.

"I've always liked to go forward and be creative, in the past I've found the defensive side of the game a bit more difficult so I've worked hard to be as disciplined as possible and try to help the team in both aspects. Whether it's in attack or tracking back and making a tackle.

"Every time I step on the pitch I try to do my best, whether that's in a game or in training. I believe hard work pays off and you always get your rewards one way or another."
