Forest Green Rovers striker Christian Doidge has paid credit to his team mates ahead of their play-off campaign writes Tom Feaheny.

The Welsh striker has so far scored 25 goals helping the team into the top five places. Doidge says he’s pleased with how it has gone for him since joining.

“It’s been a good season, I joined in the summer, I didn’t know what to expect but I’ve enjoyed playing in the Vanarama National League, I think scoring goals as well has made it even better.

“The vibe in the dressing room is good. It’s important we get wins going into the final games before the play-offs.

“I’ve moved a little closure to home. It means I’m closure to my friends and family, that’s been nice. I’m in a good team, I’ve had more chances to score and show my finishing skills.”

Rovers are being managed by Mark Cooper who joined at the end of the last season and Doidge says his boss has helped him.

“I’ve enjoyed working under him, he sold the club to me in the summer. He’s managed at a higher level, when he says something you listen. He’s taught me a few things and I’ve improved this season.”

Forest Green may face Tranmere in one of the play-off games and after their recent victory over Micky Mellon’s team, Doidge knows how tough that game would be.

“We weren’t at our best, it was a tough game, they have a lot of quality. It is all about momentum, as soon as you get there you have to take every chance you get.”

Doidge had spells at Southampton and Bristol Rovers before eventually being at The New Lawn. The forward said those set backs had helped him.

“I’ve always wanted to prove people wrong, I’ve had a good season, I couldn’t be happier. It’s massive if we can go up, we’ve got big ambition, I want to be part of the journey. All the players want to be involved in League Two next season here.”
