SMITH FOCUSED ON SECURING VICTORY

13 April 2017

Nathan Smith is looking to put aside a personal accolade for the sake of three points at Newport County.

If selected for the fixture at Rodney Parade on Good Friday (3pm), the 30-year-old will make his 250th appearance for the Glovers over two spells.


The defender is proud of potentially achieving such a milestone but says he is focused on securing a victory in South Wales.


Smith told YTFC.net: “It’ll be a nice situation to happen (250 apps) and hopefully it does. It doesn’t really seem that long ago (since I made my debut).


“From the first time I was here to now, there have been a lot of characters and the people I’ve met have been interesting. 


“It feels surreal when people say I’m one of the experienced ones in the changing room because I didn’t have any experience (when I came here).


“However, there’s nothing else in my mind other than going to Newport and getting a win. 


“The result is the most important thing - 100%. We just want to get the best results we can out of the last five games and it’ll be down to hard work.


“We know what we need to do as a team and if we can get that job done, it’ll be the icing on the cake.”
