Golbourne was a popular bwin free bet to score on his debut at Watford on Saturday, and he didn't disappoint. The 23-year-old left-back needed just 28 minutes to score his first goal for his new club. after coming on in the second half.
It was the former Exeter City recruits first goal for nearly a year having last scored for Exeter last April in a 2-0 home win over Oldham.
“I’m really pleased with the way I played, I was happy to get on the pitch,” reflected Golbourne, who was introduced with the Reds trailing 2-0.
“As a left-back sometimes when you’re losing the game you don’t expect to get on, it’s usually the strikers that come on to try and make an impact.
“To score capped off a nice debut for me, but playing was the most important thing.
“It was just a shame we couldn’t get the points as well, that would have capped it off nicely.
“I hadn’t scored this season, but I got a couple last season. Hopefully that’s the first of many for the club.”
It's a big step up for Golbourne who has spent the majority of his career in leagues 1 and 2, but he did experience Premier League football with Reading and so the prospect of Championship football doesn't phase him.
“It’s a bit of a step up and I’m sure I’m going to come up against different opposition and a different standard, but I’m looking forward to that,” he said. “That’s the challenge for me. It’s a bit more composed than League One, you get a little bit more time on the ball and the game is more structured.
“It’s not so much about scaring the opposition, but it’s still a very physical level. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
