Stuart Beavon was delighted to answer manager Sam Ricketts’ call to start scoring away from home, The Leader report.

The experienced striker went into Sunday’s FA Cup first round tie against Weston-super-Mare at The Woodspring Stadium with three goals to his name, all of which he bagged at The Racecourse.

On a season-long loan deal from Coventry City, Beavon finally got his first away goal in the 2-0 win, netting after his first effort was saved by the goalkeeper.

“It was a good finish but I would have been happier if I’d scored the first one!” said Beavon.

“I went to play it across him and I just scooped it straight into his hands but when it come back I was like ‘there is in no way I am missing this’.

“I should have scored in the first half with my left foot as well.

“The gaffer said he wants me to start scoring away from home so I will take that.”
