Leading from the back

20 August 2013

Harry Maguire is delighted to be United's leading scorer after three games, but insists winning games is more memorable.

Speaking after netting his second of the campaign in as many home league games to date, the defender, who received more than a helping hand from Colchester goalkeeper Sam Walker, remarked:

"I am happy to be contributing goals, because last season I was disappointed with my return. Both goals have been pleasing, although the one against Notts County was more satisfying because it proved to be the matchwinner.

"Once Febian (Brandy) had taken the quick free-kick at the weekend, all I thought was to take a touch out of my feet and hit and hope to be honest.

"I connected reasonably well and if you hit the target sometimes you will force the goalkeeper to make a mistake and thankfully that was the case on Saturday.

"The Gaffer has been urging the lads to try their luck from distance, more often than not it won't go in but if you keep shooting anything can happen, as we saw."
