In a gruelling week of fixtures which has seen the side face Notts County on Tuesday and now Carlisle on Saturday, McQuoid assured supporters that the team have prepared thoroughly.
“We just have to deal with it - obviously there is a lot of travelling in football,” he told afcb.co.uk. “We just rest as much as we can, and chill out on the coach on the way up there as well. We have lots of things to do – there is always a bit of banter going on!”
“The starting players haven’t trained as much this week, just to keep their legs fresh, but it varies on the week. The manager always varies the training dependent upon how many games we have.”
McQuoid opened the scoring on Tuesday night at Meadow Lane – his goal early in the second half being the first in an inspired comeback from the visitors. And this, he explained was something he was pleased about as goals are an area of his game he wants to improve upon.
“It was my first goal since I came back, so it’s obviously nice to get back on the score sheet.
“Hopefully it’s something I can add to my game being back here again - hopefully there will be many more to come.”
The Cherries’ goals have been coming from all areas, with all three on Tuesday coming from different sources – in Josh McQuoid, Harry Arter and Matt Tubbs respectively.
This again is something the former Millwall striker believes can only benefit the team.
“It’s good to be getting goals from everywhere because it means that everyone is contributing to the game.
“It goes the same with defending - it starts from the front and everyone throughout the team has to contribute to scoring.
“It’s good to have loads of people scoring, because it’s good for competition for places – it’s healthy so it’s nice to see.”
