Marshall reaps reward for hard work

After his first league goal of the season on Saturday against AFC Wimbledon, Mark Marshall has explained his desire to push on and make more of an impact on the team.

“I’m a firm believer if you keep working hard, more times than not something positive will happen. Now I want to get back on the training ground and continue to work hard, I’m not going to rest on this, I want to get more goals and to provide assists for my teammates.”

The 31-year-old admitted that manager Lee Bowyer deserves some credit for the goal that gave the addicks a two-goal lead.

“I will be honest with you when the ball came to me, I was thinking of checking back on my left foot. But recently in training he’s (Bowyer) been encouraging me to let the ball to run across me and shoot across the goal.”

“You are never too old to learn, obviously he (Bowyer) played at the top for a long time, so he is a good person to take information from.” 

Marshall will be looking to continue where he left off when Gillingham visit The Valley on Saturday.
