Lockwood determined to push Latics on
Date published: 04 March 2014
ADAM Lockwood would love to keep his place in an Athletic team he believes can “go places”.
The 32-year-old former Yeovil, Doncaster and Bury defender joined Athletic at the turn of the year on a deal until the end of this season following his release from Bury.
Manager Lee Johnson’s former team-mate made his debut as a substitute against Wolves on January 28, but since then he has started at the heart of the defence in Athletic’s last six games.
Those matches have seen two wins, two draws and two narrow defeats.
Lockwood has impressed in those games and would like to keep the momentum going: “I’m really enjoying my run in the team, obviously. To be part of this club is an honour.
“The lads have been brilliant with me and I just want to keep playing as big a part as possible between now and the end of the season.
“I’ll let other people judge whether my performances have been good enough. I want to try to help the lads, while they’re helping me.
“I’ve been around a long time so I’ve got the experience, but football is always going to be a learning game however old you are.
“If we all keep doing that, working together - which is the general ethos under the gaffer – then hopefully we’ll go places.”
