Winning Goal A Brilliant Feeling For Bradley

Conor Bradley admits being the Whites’ joint leading scorer has come as a pleasant surprise.

Bradley hadn’t scored a senior goal in his fledgling first-team career until last week.

But the winner against Morecambe made it two in two home games for the on-loan Liverpool wing-back to put him alongside midfield men Aaron Morley and Kyle Dempsey on two goals apiece in the opening weeks of the season.

“I definitely wouldn’t have been expecting to be joint top goalscorer, but I’ll take it and keep going and keep working hard,” said Bradley, who followed up his Carabao Cup cracker with the decisive strike in a 1-0 victory over the Shrimps.

“It was a brilliant feeling to score again and I’m just really happy with the three points.

“It was a hard-grafted three points and we’re buzzing with that.

“We knew it was important to get the first goal because we knew if they got it they would probably sit in and it would be hard to break them down.

“So we knew that was important and thankfully it just landed to me and I put it away.”

Bradley has enjoyed an outstanding start to his season-long stay with Wanderers and struck up an instant rapport with the Whites’ fans.

And the 19-year-old admits things could barely be going better after helping Ian Evatt’s men to an unbeaten start to the campaign which sees them sitting fourth in the League One table and looking forward to a second-round cup tie at home to Aston Villa.

“We’ve made a really good start but we know it’s going to be a long season. There are going to be ups and downs,” Bradley added.

“It will be a difficult season so we will just keep our heads, keep going and keep working hard.

“I’ve loved it so far. We’ve been doing really well. We’re still undefeated, so it’s going really well.

“The support has been unbelievable. I know I’ve only played a couple of games here but the support has been brilliant.”
