Defender Ben Gordon has spoken of his relief and delight after scoring a rare goal to cap his successful recall to the Gainsborough Trinity line-up.

Gordon bagged the all-important second goal in the 4-1 win over Workington on Saturday, which boosted Trinity’s promotion push. And he is hoping it can trigger a fruitful spell for both himself personally and the team.

“It was frustrating to be left out of the side for nine or ten games,” the much-travelled 27-year-old full-back told Gainsborough Trinity TV after Saturday’s match.

“But I kept training the best I could, and when I spoke to the manager, he said that when I get back in the team, to make sure I take my chance.

“I have played the last three games now, and I just want to keep my shirt until the end of the season. As for the goal, I probably don’t score as many as I would like as a modern-day full-back who wants to get forward.”
