Weso ready to ditch mask
Date published: 13 January 2014
MASKED marauder James Wesolowski hopes he can bin his headgear next week.
Weso has played the last two games in a special face guard to protect against damage to his fractured cheekbone.
“Once you are playing, the adrenaline kicks in and you forget you have got it on,” said the midfield man.
“It just adds that bit of extra protection. I will have to wear it for one or two more games then hopefully get rid of it.”
Wesolowski admitted it was a grind against Boro, but he believes that there are good enough players in the squad to see Athletic push up the league.
“It was a good day. We always knew it would be a difficult against Stevenage, who make it hard for you to play football,” he added.
“We ground it out after getting the early goal. In the second half, we didn’t play as well as we can do but the main thing is the three points which gets us away from the bottom end of the league.”
