Rob Sinclair grateful for Football League opportunity

Midfielder is already a Lamex Stadium favourite after two fine displays

ROB Sinclair said he is grateful to Graham Westley for giving him the opportunity to play in the Football League.

Sinclair impressed after coming off the bench against Macclesfield Town when his side was 2-1 down on Saturday before teeing up Charlie Griffin for his 89th minute equaliser.

The midfielder was then given a start against Portsmouth in Monday’s 2-1 Carling Cup First Round defeat and put in a creative and agile first half display.

“It was brilliant, a dream come true for me to be given the opportunity in the Football League,” Sinclair said.

“With the gaffer’s spirit we’ll never give in and we’ll give it all right to the death and I think we deserved a draw (against Macclesfield) and should have nicked it at the end.”

Sinclair is behind his teammates in terms of match fitness after getting injured in his first week at the club but has looked lively and was giving a standing ovation when taken off against Portsmouth midway through the second half on Monday evening.

“It wasn’t a great start. I came in and tore my groin within three days and it was a horrible start but I’ve got myself fit, worked hard and am back in the team now.

“I’d love to play in all the games. Every game I want to play in and hopefully the gaffer will pick me.”
