Scott Quigley hoping for a festive feast after hitting the goal trail just at the right time

Shropshire’s Scott Quigley is hoping to continue his purple patch through the busy League Two festive period.

The striker has bagged twice in his last two games with Barrow AFC picking up their first win in ten games last time out.

It comes after the sacking of manager David Dunn, who was replaced on Wednesday by former Grimsby Town boss Michael Jolley.

After a string of injuries earlier in the season the former TNS striker has found his form again, and is keen to kick on further.

“I feel like I’m playing really well at the moment and I’m on a bit of a run that I want to continue,” said the striker.

“I feel fit and sharp after being in and out because of injuries earlier in the season.

“We’ve got our first win in about ten games now which is great and I just want to keep kicking on really.

“I’ve got a bit of consistency and had a few games in a row now, so its just about continuing that and trying to hit some form as a team.”

Dunn was sacked with the club having just earned 13 points since they returned to the EFL.

Jolley now comes in ahead of festive fixtures with Port Vale and Tranmere Rovers, games which Quigley believes his side can win.

And he also believes AFC have the right balance in their squad to be able to deal with such a busy period of fixtures.

He added: “It is always tough when a manager goes but these things do happen in football.

“We just want to get our heads down now and carry on and pick up some results.

“It is always a tough period, but we can handle it and we know what we are expecting.

“If you take the top two or three off the squad list then we have an average age of about 23, so there are plenty of legs in there to deal with this schedule.

“But there’s also the experience to guide us through.

“We’ve got a good chance of getting results in these games, and for me I’m looking forward to seeing some old mates when we go to Port Vale.”
