Goal-Getter Bodvarsson Feeling Great

January signing in the right place to score goals after late equaliser adds to his tally

9 March 2022

Point-saver Jon Dadi Bodvarsson believes he’s in the perfect place to keep scoring goals after joining Wanderers.

Bodvarsson’s injury-time equaliser against Morecambe made it three in five games for the Iceland international.

The January signing had previously endured a lengthy lean spell at Millwall, where he had fallen out of first-team contention this season.

But Bodvarsson couldn’t be happier at how things are panning out at Wanderers where he is a key part of manager Ian Evatt’s plans.

“I’m very confident at the moment. I feel great,” said Bodvarsson, whose 94th-minute strike against Morecambe secured a 1-1 draw to extend the Whites’ unbeaten home run to seven games.

“I feel like I can express myself on the pitch and be myself since I came here – something that was maybe lacking at my previous club.

“I’m just over the moon really for my start at the club and long may it continue.

“Scoring a last-minute equaliser is always nice to give us a bit more of a positive atmosphere at the end for the lads.

“It was a tough game but we at least got a point from a hard game and we keep moving forward.”

Wanderers were unable to extend their winning home run after Morecambe had survived an early bombardment from Wanderers before pinching the lead through Cole Stockton.

But Bodvarsson came off the bench to reward the Whites perseverance at the death with the gap behind the play-off remaining at seven points ahead of Saturday’s crucial visit of sixth-placed Plymouth Argyle.

“They were fighting for their lives and made it hard for us,” added Bodvarsson, whose smart finish made it goals in back-to-back games.

“We had a good spell in the first 25 minutes of the game where we could have put the game almost to bed.

“So maybe we were our worst enemy. That happens, unfortunately, sometimes but we managed to get at least something out of the game at the end and that’s a positive.

“We’re still in it. We’re disappointed today. Luckily Saturday is not far off now and we’re looking to get a good result from that game and keep that play-off belief still on.”
