Match Preview | Cameron Coxe

U's defender happy to help out attack

11 March 2022

Cameron Coxe was part of a U's defence that kept a clean sheet last weekend, but wants to also help the U's at the other end of the pitch.

The U's beat Port Vale 1-0 thanks to fellow defender Tom Dallison's header, and the U's will be hoping that they can build on that at Scunthorpe this weekend.

It's a game between two sides both looking to avoid relegation - the hosts sit at the bottom, nine points from safety, and the U's are five points clear of the bottom two.

Coxe returned to the U's starting eleven at the turn of the New Year, and has been an ever present in the U's side since.

As well as helping out the defence, Coxe enjoys getting forward to help the U's on the attacking front.

Ahead of the Scunthorpe clash, he said: "I love to attack and help the team going forward."

"I think we've played some decent football recently in the past few matches so it's been great to get myself back in there.

"When i was younger, I was a winger but I was moved back because I could get up and down well so they thought full back would be the perfect position for me."

Cameron came very close to his first goal for the U's in the recent home game against Hartlepool, and he hopes that he will get that goal soon.

"I'd love to get on the scoresheet now. I've not scored in a while to be fair and that chance the other night - I thought it was in. I'll keep trying though."

For the first time in a few weeks, the U's have had a free midweek without a game and preparations for the Scunthorpe game have gone well.

Coxe explained that it doesn't matter where the opposition are placed in the league table, preparations remain the same.

He concluded: "You prepare for every game the exact same, whether they're first in the league or bottom of the league."

"Football's a crazy game where anything can happen on the day, so you've got to be prepared right and get everything spot on to get the points."
