The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

MICHAIL An­to­nio is just as keen to pro­vide more as­sists for his Not­ting­ham For­est team-mates as he is to score him­self - and he’s ea­ger to add to both tal­lies in the com­ing weeks.

Since his £1.5mil­lion sum­mer move from Sh­effield Wed­nes­day, the 24-year-old has lit up the City Ground, and his link-up play with Britt As­som­ba­longa has been a key rea­son for For­est’s strong start to the sea­son.

The free-scor­ing winger has al­ready sur­passed his sin­gle-sea­son scor­ing record be­fore the half­way point of this cam­paign with ten, and he’s hun­gry for more.

“I haven’t set any real tar­gets, I just want to take them as they come,” he said. “If I score, I just say to my­self ‘that’s another one on the tally’.

“I like get­ting the as­sists as well, and I want to get more of those be­cause I know they are im­por­tant to the side.

“Hope­fully I can add to that tally as well, be­cause it is a big part of my game.

“Britt is a mas­sive in­flu­ence on me. He gets goals and you will al­ways miss him when he is not in the side. He is a player you al­ways want to play with.”
