BAKER'S GOAL HUNT

27 January 2017

Midfielder interviewed in Exeter programme

He has provided an assist for each of Pompey’s last three goals at Fratton Park.

But Carl Baker hopes that he will be the one to finish a move off when the Blues host Exeter on Saturday.

Conor Chaplin and Gary Roberts are the only players to net more than the six goals the midfielder has managed so far this season.

So Baker hopes he can increase his tally this weekend and help the hosts put pressure on the top three in League Two.

“It’s a tricky one because I’m happy with how I’ve performed overall, but always feel that I can give more,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash.

“I’m happy that I’m feeling fit and healthy, and haven’t missed any training sessions, so I feel ready for the rest of the campaign.

“But I’m disappointed because I’ve gone 10 games without scoring now and that’s what I judge myself on.

“I’ve started every league game, but a couple more goals would have been nice in the first half of the season.

“The greatest feeling in the world is scoring, but if you can’t do that then providing an assist is the next best thing.

“To get a couple against Orient last time out and then also set-up Christian for the winner against Luton before that was pleasing, especially because those goals ensured we won the games.”

To read the full interview – where Baker also talks about Pompey’s promotion hopes and what he got up to after last week’s Crawley game was postponed – pick up a copy of the magazine from programme sellers around the ground.
