Matthew Lund says Salford City are aiming to keep climbing after going unbeaten through November. 

The Ammies’ midfielder has scored twice in his last two games, including the opening goal in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Oldham Athletic which he headed beyond the reach of Jayson Leutwiler on the stroke of half time.

Three more points in what has been an unbeaten November put Salford back into the top half for the first time since the first game week of the season as the league schedule breaks for the Emirates FA Cup Second Round next week.

But after a good month of results and two goals to take his season tally to four, the 31-year-old says he and his teammates are looking forward to continuing. 

“It’s been good, the last week especially getting seven points on the board, if we can keep this form up it’ll be good, keep us pushing up the table and that’s what we want to do.

“Tuesday was a massive point for us, coming from behind in the circumstances that we did, but today was brilliant, a different game with the conditions, and having to deal with pressure at times, but to score off two set pieces was massive for us.

“I’ve always thought I could score goals, try and get into the box. I’ve said to the Gaffer before I want to try and score more than I have done this season, and I’ve had chances and just not taken that at times, but it’s good to see I’ve popped up with a couple in the last couple of games and I’ve got to add to that.

“It was a good time to score, I think the game was quite edgy at the time so yeah it was probably the best time to score, to go in at half time 1-0 up was massive for us.

“We want to be higher but we’ve got to keep going game by game now, there’s still a lot of games to go. 

“It’s a good chance for us next week in the FA Cup and hopefully we can go and get into the next round of that, that would be good for us so we’re fully focused on that now.”
