INTERVIEW | Green Light

Devarn Green says things are very ‘positive’ in the Southport camp after a victory over Farsley Celtic made it a second 3-0 win.

After beginning the campaign with two goalless draws, Liam Watson’s side have found their scoring boots in the last two games

“The main focus was to start better than we did last season,” says Green. “We have to keep this going because it is only early days, but things are very positive.”

“Everyone is buzzing at the minute and there are good vibes so we need to keep that going.”

The winger, who both assisted and scored a goal against the Celt Army, was very pleased with both team performance and his own after the game on Tuesday night.

“I’m feeling very good,” he says. “The most important thing is I got my goal and we got the win, so it’s onwards and upwards.”

Green added his name to the scoresheet on the 29th minute, putting the ball past the keeper after getting onto a rebound.

“I actually lost my balance a bit because I didn’t expect it to fall to me. You have to gamble with those kind of chances; I did and it paid off.”

“I’m trying to add more goals to my game so I’ve been working on that a bit more in training and it’s paying off and hopefully I can get a few more because it’s very important to be clinical.”

Green also praised the performance of the defenders in the squad, with the Port yet to concede in the first four game of the season.

He said: “We are very solid at the minute. As a unit we’re very strong, because we’ve got some great defenders with Ryan (Astles) and Dean (Winnard). We’ve also got Zehn (Mohammed) coming in, and obviously Reagan (Ogle) to complete a strong back four.”

Heading into the weekend, Green is unsure of what to expect from next opponents Darlington.

“You never know what to expect in this league. The game against Farsley was really tough even though we won 3-0. It is a long travel to Blackwell Meadows so to go up there and getting a win would be a plus.”

The 22-year-old says it will be more of the same in training for the Port squad.

“We are going to carry on with the same that we are doing, we aren’t going to change what we are working on.”

“Getting the win is the main focus. We need to look at ourselves and not the opposition.”
