Training ground move pays off for Max
EXTRA shooting practice paid off for Max Kretzschmar as he scored his first two professional goals for Wanderers on Saturday.
The shot from outside the area that opened the scoring against Hartlepool was thanks to the midfielder staying late at the training ground to work on his technique.
Kretzschmar said he'd taken manager Gareth Ainsworth's advice to work on his shooting after the Blues boss said his side need more goals.
The teenager said: "The one outside the box I work on quite a lot. The strikers work on their shooting but me and Josh Scowen do it after training. I'm happy it came off.
"Gaz said before the season we need more goals, not just from our strikers but from our wide players, our midfielders, even the defenders.
"I don't want to set too many targets yet, I just want to take it a game at a time. Hopefully the goals come my way if I get in the right positions - I'm sure I can take a few."
Kretschmar said he wasn't sure where to turn after opening the scoring in the 2-1 win at Victoria Park.
He said: "I was a bit confused after the first goal, I was thinking should I run to Gaz or the fans. Luckily I got two so I could do one of each.
"The fans making all those miles up here were brilliant. The miles go faster when you've got a win."
The 19-year-old came on at half time after Wanderers had survived a Hartlepool onslaught and he said: "We were a bit flat and Hartlepool were on top and probably should have scored in the first half. We said at half time they've had their chances so let's create our chances."
