JOSH CARSON will carry on trying his luck from long range after scoring his fifth goal of the season - all from outside the penalty box.

The York City winger netted his side’s second goal in Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Wycombe after his 25-yard drive bounced off the turf to deceive visiting keeper Matt Ingram.

No City player has had more attempts at goal than Carson this season with his tally of 48 (23 on target and 25 off) two greater than nearest team-mate Michael Coulson.

Following his latest effort, the 20-year-old Irishman is in no mood to stop shooting now.

He said: “Saturday’s goal wasn’t the best strike I’ve ever had but it took a funny bounce and, fortunately for me, it ended up in the net. I was always told as a young lad that if you don’t shoot, you don’t score and that if you don’t hit the target, you won’t score either.

“I haven’t hit the target on various occasions this season, but I always seem to be getting shots away and that shows I am willing to have a go.

“I am always staying behind at training to practise, so I just need to keep shooting and hope that more will find the net because it was nice to get on the scoresheet again.”

With Carson’s goal coming from a quickly-intercepted Wycombe corner, the Northern Ireland international added that it provided a strong example of City’s devastating potential on the counter attack.

“We leave two players up for opposition corners and not many teams do that so, when we get the ball, we have two on three, then I break as well and it’s three on three,” Carson explained.

“It’s all down to good tactics really.”

Carson had earlier earned his side a second penalty in as many games when he was tripped by Wycombe forward Dean Morgan.

In City’s previous match, Carson incurred the wrath of a vociferous home crowd when he went down under a challenge from Mansfield’s John Dempster.

The ex-Ipswich man insisted both spot-kicks were correctly awarded and the reward for quick bursts into the area followed by nimble footwork.

“I’ve just been told to drive into the box because players don’t want to tackle you when you’re in there,” said Carson. “Those two players have tried to and, fortunately, I have got the penalties.

“If you can move the ball quickly, by the time players react they can clip you and it’s a penalty.”

Carson is also enjoying the partnerships he has forged with Lanre Oyebanjo and Michael Coulson.

He said: “Banj is so fast and we have got that telepathy. With Couls, we have been working on one-twos. He’s always telling me if I get the ball into his feet, he will give me it back and that’s what happened for Saturday’s penalty.”

This is all good. Speed and movement into the box, and cut back crosses from the by-line hard and low - football's not complicated. Make defenders commit...more penalties to come!

Earlier in the season I was critical of the apparent lack of training ground work on interplay and understanding between players. Clearly such a moan would not be appropriate now.

All you ever do is slag off other contributors or go on about how you were always right in the past. It's very boring, please stop it.

WHY do you assume I am slagging Edsoni off, I am interested that he has taken the trouble to see for himself the players during training not only on match days. As far as being right all the time, my comments are up for discussion as any one else You take exception to that, that's you problem,
As I have seen on here Edsoni is well able to stick up for himself without you putting you two pence worth in.
