Beck Ready To Kick On

Owen Beck is hoping there’s plenty more to come after his latest impressive cameo.

Beck came off the bench as Wanderers tried to force a late equaliser and potential FA Cup replay against Barnsley.

The on-loan Liverpool youngster played his part in Jon Dadi Bodvarsson’s goal as the Whites made it 2-1.

And while Wanderers couldn’t ultimately complete a comeback to avoid a first-round exit, Beck underlined his potential and determination to make his mark at the University of Bolton Stadium.  

“I thought I had a positive impact on the game. I’ve got to gain momentum from this and keep pushing now,” said the left-sided defender.

“I’ve got to keep working hard, training hard and when I get an opportunity I need to perform and show the gaffer what I can do.

“I’m enjoying it here. It’s a long season and I’m hoping to get as many games as I can under my belt.

“I feel like I’ve learned a lot. I’m around more senior players in a first-team environment and I feel like it’s doing me good and I’m learning a lot and picking up on things.

“In reality, I just want to be playing and I need to keep training hard and give myself every chance to do so.”

Prior to his FA Cup bow, Beck’s previous Wanderers’ appearances had come in the Papa Johns Trophy as the 20-year-old got up to speed following a short stint in Portugal at the start of the season.

The Wales U21 international is with the Whites on a season-long loan from Anfield and is looking for a collective response to the Cup exit when Ian Evatt’s men resume their top-six challenge in League One at Cambridge United next Saturday.

“We’ve had a disappointment, but we’ve got to re-group and get ready for the next game,” Beck added.

“We know we’re good enough. We win together and we lose together. We’re together as a team and no matter how the result goes we’re all one.

“We need to re-group as a team, stick together and we’ve definitely got the quality to come through and start picking up better results.”
