Yates predicting Harrad goal haul

19 August 2012

Shaun Harrad scored his first goal for Cheltenham in their 2-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge and his manager insisted there will be plenty more to follow for the striker.

Harrad, 27, on a season-long loan from Bury, scored deep into first-half injury time with winger Jermaine McGlashan wrapping up the three points at the start of the second half.

"Shaun Harrad is here to score goals and he will," said Town boss Mark Yates. "I believe if he plays 35 games, he'll score 20 or 25 goals.

"His general play was good and it was nice to see the new players involved in the goals."

Daggers boss John Still was pleased with the way his side performed despite the scoreline.

"I thought the result was a bit unjust," he said.

"The first goal we were disappointed with, but you can't do much about the second. Other than that it was the only shot they had in the second half.

"We played very well and I was very pleased with the performance. We were better at this stage of the season than I thought we would be.

"I will be honest, we are away from home and, after that goal early in the second half, I didn't think we were in trouble.

"We needed one to go for us but it's early days yet and I was very pleased with the performance."
