Coach gets rewards for positive outlook on training ground

Terry Connor’s ‘positive thinking’ got its rewards on Saturday with two goals from David McGoldrick giving Town victory over Brighton. 

Mick McCarthy and the striker praised the work TC does on the training ground on finishing after the 2-0 win, with the Town boss saying: “TC does a lot of work with the strikers and I could see all that practise in Didzy’s second goal, the twisting and turning and shooting across the ‘keeper. He deserves a lot of credit for the way he works with the strikers.”

Terry spent 15 years as a frontman for clubs including Leeds and Brighton and told the Club website: “It probably helps that I was a striker when I’m coaching the front players. 

“I’ve been there when you’ve missed chances but you’ve got to stay positive.

“We do a lot of work on the training ground around creating and scoring goals, right through the team. It’s frustrating – like at Wigan – when he we played well  from back to front but the ball didn’t end in their net.  

“That’s when you keep on at the players - encouraging them to shoot, encouraging them to take defenders on.”
