Maghoma | Hopefully I Can Fully Kick On Now

Maghoma celebration Wycombe

Fit-again Paris Maghoma is ready for lift-off in his Wanderers’ career as he heads home to London, writes Pete Oliver.

Maghoma marked his first league start since August following a spell out with a hamstring injury with the opening goal in the Whites’ mid-week win at Wycombe.

The on-loan Brentford midfielder impressed at Adams Park where he made his biggest impact yet since his summer signing from the Bees.

And the Enfield-born 22-year-old wants to back it up in the remainder of his time with the Whites as he prepares for a return to the capital at Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

“Injuries come and it probably won't be my last injury. It's something you have to deal with, but the staff and players here have been great and when you're injured you're still part of the team, coming to all the home games and supporting," said Maghoma.

“We have that big togetherness but hopefully that's out of the way and that's my last one for the season and I can fully kick on now.

“There's still a lot more to come for me. Now it's just about getting into a rhythm of things, getting the flow, picking up some more form and hopefully putting in some performances.

“I was buzzing to be back, getting the start (at Wycombe), being around the boys again and the most important thing getting the win. I had read that we hadn't won there so it is good to make that statement as well.

“It was a madness (at the end). The away fans were great and when Toally headed it in I was off and sprinting. It was great.”

Maghoma played for almost 70 minutes at Wycombe before making way for fresh legs as Ian Evatt’s men scored twice late on to secure a dramatic 4-2 victory.

That made it four wins out of five in the league for the Whites, who could potentially go into the top two with another three points at The Valley.

Maghoma is expecting a serious test against a Charlton side which has climbed into mid-table on the back of a decent run of their own ahead of a first defeat in eight games to Lincoln on Tuesday night.

But he believes Wanderers still have room of their own for improvement as they aim to stay among the early front runners in League One.  

“Again, it's about having that consistency; not getting too high, not getting too low, just finding that middle ground and having some balance,” Maghoma added.

“The form we're on is good. It could be better and that's what we're striving towards because we all know the end goal for us this season is to get promoted, so we need to keep reaching new levels and I think we’ll do that.

“Charlton will be a tough side. We know their front four are probably their biggest threat. But we know our game-plan and it’s just about executing it right.”
