Don Me 'ead, Son
SONNY Bradley scored his seventh Sky Bet League Two goal of the season to win Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash for Argyle at Doncaster Rovers, and he is not finished yet.
All seven goals have come from headers, with set-piece deliveries from Graham Carey and David Fox being particularly productive, and all have resulted in wins for the promotion-chasing Pilgrims.
“I want more now,” said Sonny.
“Confidence is building; I feel good; and with the deliveries we have got...Foxy and Graham’s deliveries are spot on and all you have to do is make the right run and good contact. You don’t have to go out of your way. When the ball comes in like it does and you make a good run, it’s a goal every time.
“I’ll press on for some more goals this season; if I can, hopefully they’ll be part of more wins; if we do that, hopefully we’ll go up.
“I’ve just got to keep going, keep working on the set-pieces; mix it up; try something different; keep the opposition guessing. If we keep working on it and the deliveries keep coming in like they are, then I don’t see any reason why I can’t score any more.”
Only one of Sonny’s seven – an injury-time winner against Cheltenham Town – has come at Home Park, with the other half-dozen providing for some memorable away-days, not least of which was Sunday’s win at the Keepmoat Stadium.
“I’ve had chances at home,” he said. “I’ve hit the bar; I’ve hit the post; a couple wide. They just haven’t gone for me. When you look back, they all seem to be pretty important goals. I think everyone will be happy with me, going back today.”
Perhaps the only thing that threatened to spoil Sonny’s moment was his impromptu overenthusiastic goal-celebration.
“I don’t know where the knee-slide came from,” he said. “I felt my hamstring straight afterwards and I thought ‘Why have you done that?’ but I got up and the lads were celebrating with me.
“It’s a great feeling and, when you get that feeling, you want it again.
“And again. And again.”
