Cambridge United: Rory Gaffney to push himself after dream return

Cambridge United striker Rory Gaffney says he needs to "keep pushing" after making his first start in over a year following a foot injury.

The 26-year-old joined the U's in January from Limerick but had to wait until September to make his debut.

And, after making his first start since October 2014, Gaffney scored twice in 26 minutes as Cambridge beat Yeovil.

"I trained up front with Barry Corr and we did well so we tried to do the same against Yeovil," said Gaffney.

"I want to keep pushing and improve my fitness but there are areas I need to improve on and then I can bring more to the team apart from goals," he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

Despite having a congested fixture list in recent weeks, Gaffney says he was satisfied with their return, especially given his lack of matches.

"It's my first start in over a year and last time I played was in the League of Ireland last season so I am happy with the result," he added.

"We have had three games in a week and to get six points is a good return. Two points for each game is good."
