Joss Out To Prove A Point

4 October 2012

Midfielder interviewed in the official matchbook ahead of clash with former club...

Joss Labadie is desperate to be selected in the squad to face his former club on Saturday.

Notts will take on npower League 1 leaders Tranmere Rovers in what will be, on paper, the toughest game of the season so far.

Rovers are undefeated this term and have taken an impressive 24 points from the opening 10 matches. 

Labadie spent two seasons at Prenton Park before arriving at Meadow Lane and is eager to make an impression against his former club. 

“Things didn’t work out for me there for one or two reasons last season,” he told The Mag. 

“I just want to play football and I didn’t get that chance last year.

“Things have worked out really well and I’ve got no regrets. 

“I enjoyed my time at Tranmere and they’ve got great staff, great players and I made great friends there.

“It’s a good club, with good fans, but my time there was up and I’m here now. 

“I’m a Notts County player and I’m chuffed to bits with that.”

He added: “Football’s football and I’m a professional, and as soon as I step out over that white line, there’s no friends with the opposition and against Tranmere will be no different.

“In football you’ve always got to prove people wrong and going up against your former club will be no different.

“If I’m selected, I’ll be looking for a good performance and a good team performance, but first and foremost is the three points.”
