We sat down with Reece Brown after he collected his League Two Player of the Month award.

He discussed his form in March, how his approach has changed this season and how he wants to cap the season with promotion. 

Congratulations on being named the League Two Player of the Month, how does it feel?

I’m happy to receive the award.

I think I was nominated once earlier in the season and didn’t quite get it done, I didn’t score enough goals, but I am happy to get it now.

Five goals and two assists during the month, did it feel like you were in a rich vein of form?

I felt like each game we went into, I just went in thinking I could score again. Once you get one or two, you just get that little feeling.

It was a good month, it was my birthday month as well and this is the best present I could have got.

Once you’ve got those goals, you just seem to get yourself in those areas where the opportunity can be presented to you and luckily I could put them away.

Which goal stood out for you?

My favourite? For the build-up, my Colchester goal, and then just for the goal itself, the Carlisle goal at home.

Did that performance against Colchester feel like a pivotal moment in the season?

We were going through a little rough patch at that stage and playing a team around us, to beat them 3-0 at their place, it was a good day and a good performance from the team.

That goal against Port Vale at the end to wrap up your brace was another special one wasn't it?

I don’t know how I did it. So late in the game, I don’t know how I ran so far.

I slowed down a bit as well, expecting the defender to run into me and prepared for it and then went and scored.

Our fans were there and my dad was in the crowd as well, so it was a special moment for me.

Which do you prefer, assisting goals or scoring them?

I don’t really mind, either for me, as long as there is a goal at the end of it, whether it is me scoring it or someone else scoring it, the goal is the important thing.

You said at the start of the season, it was a pivotal one for you, is that how you've approached it?

I’m just getting old. I can’t mess about any more.

Last year was my first year in this league and you get a bit of understanding and this year I just wanted to come in and knuckle down and just really get going and give it a really good go.

Luckily, it is working so far.

Now you just want that cherry on the cake of promotion come the end of the season?

That’s all we want now with five games to go, possibly another three, and hopefully we’re promoted and playing in League One next season.
