Appearances and goals are all striker is looking at
After coming off the bench at Gillingham on Saturday and scoring again, Jordan Hugill is hoping he has done enough for the manager to consider starting him against Swindon Town at the weekend.
Hugill impressed again and netted his fourth goal of the season, but says he is a part of the team and if the team doesn’t play well, it is as much down to him as anybody.
He says: “It is always good to get a goal, especially coming off the bench, but we are disappointed with the result, obviously.
“I didn’t think we did that well, but we started coming back towards the end and to get the goal, it was really good to get on the score sheet again.
“It’s great to get on the score sheet, but it’s a team game and if the team doesn’t play well, then I am part of that team.
“I have set myself targets and hopefully be the end of the season I can reach those targets.”
Jordan teamed up with fellow striker Ben Williamson at the Priestfield Stadium, both of them coming off the bench to make an impact on the game.
It is a partnership that could well be given time to blossom and although Hugill says it doesn’t particularly bother him who he plays alongside, he admits they make a good pairing.
“I have known Ben for a long time and lived out in Spain with him at the Glenn Hoddle Acadamy and I get on really well with him. He said:
“It isn’t about personal preference, I don’t pick the team, the gaffer picks the team. I will play with anyone, but there are partnerships you do like and Ben is a good partner to have, I think we play well together.
“I am looking to get as much game time as I can and hopefully keep banging goals in as well. I think I am out of contract at the end of season.
“But my only concentration is here at the moment, scoring goals and getting on the pitch and that is all I want to do at the moment, I don’t need to worry about that.”
