AFC Telford United full-back Will Salmon is determined to force his way back into manager Andy Sinton’s plans after being dropped for the first time in his Bucks career.

AFC Telford United full-back Will Salmon is determined to force his way back into manager Andy Sinton’s plans after being dropped for the first time in his Bucks career.

Salmon was left out of the side for last week’s victory over Braintree and admits he faces a tough task to get back into a winning side.

He said: “I was absolutely devastated at being left out. It was a first for me since I have come to Telford but everyone gets dropped at some point.

“Being dropped is part of football and, hopefully, I can prove that I should be back in the team.

“The gaffer doesn’t need a reason to drop anybody but pulled me aside before the game and explained it to me.

“Obviously I was gutted but, at the end of the day, the boys got the result and the clean sheet which might make it hard to get back in!

“I’ve just kept my head down at training all week and hopefully the gaffer will see fit to bring me back in for Lincoln or, if not, Lincoln then the next game.”

Salmon made the most of a rare opportunity to enjoy the game as a fan.

He said: “I was able to watch the game in the stand. Sometimes when you sit at a higher vantage point you are able to learn things about the game and what could be doing differently.

“I’m not too bad watching and, hopefully, I learnt a few things and obviously we got the result which was the main thing.”

The former Ebbsfleet defender now believes the Bucks can push on in their remaining 14 games.

He said: “Last week was a massive win for us and now we’ve got two away games at Lincoln and Alfreton.

“We don’t need to go there and win, as long as we pick up something it will set us up nicely coming into March when I think we have seven games, so that could be make or break month for us. I’m a glass half full person.”
