it has been a frus­trat­ing sea­son. I went on loan and it did not re­ally work out. “But since I have come back I have had plenty of sup­port, the club have shown their be­lief in me.

“You can get to a place with sit­u­a­tions like that, and with in­juries, where you ques­tion your be­lief in your­self and I think I had lost a bit of that. But I have come back and for me it was im­por­tant to get that ex­pe­ri­ence, those min­utes and to score is a dream come true.

“That’s what you are paid for and that’s what you want, to be pulling on that first-team shirt and im­press­ing the man­ager. I have to keep go­ing well and hope I can.

“I’d had a good sea­son last sea­son. I went up to Shrews­bury and I don’t think I was as fit as I would have liked to be and sit­ting in the stands was tough.

“But I’ve had a word with my­self, told my­self to bring that ex­pe­ri­ence back and un­der­stand there are ups and downs and now I want more.

“My fam­ily will be able to come to the game at the week­end so it would be great if I could get some min­utes in front of them.”
