Leon takes his chance
Mettam grabbed Gainsborough’s leveller at Woodside Park and with Ryan Kendall out injured he hopes to play more than just a bit-part role in the remainder of the season.
He said: “I’ve waited quite a long time to get a chance, it came round today and gladly I took it and got the goal.”
“After a decent performance today and a goal, I want to be playing next week but we’ve got a fantastic squad here.”
“There is a squad there for a reason and if the gaffer decides to change it, you never know I might be out next week but hopefully I can stay in.”
The 24-year-old was signed by former boss Brian Little before the start of the current campaign and his only other goal this season came in the 2-1 victory at Droylsden in August.
