St Mirren star Eamonn Brophy has caught the eye recently with his impressive performances for Jim Goodwin’s Buddies – and the 25-year-old hopes it can help push him into Steve Clarke’s Scotland plans.
Brophy has five league goals to his name this season and the striker believes he still has “another couple of levels” in him.
With Jamie McGrath missing this weekend again for St Mirren, Brophy and Connor Ronan will be an important part of the Buddies attack and Brophy hopes he can continue his recent fine form.
“I feel good. Last season was a nightmare and I didn’t start this season as well as I would’ve liked,” Brophy said [PDE]
“But the last couple of months I feel I’ve done well. I’m getting sharper and it’s the fittest I’ve felt in a long time.
“I still feel I’ve another couple of levels to get to, but I’m slowly getting there.
“I’d hope scoring will help my chances (of a recall). I’ve been involved in the past and it was the highlight of my career by far.
“But I’ve just started playing well this season. I’d a nightmare season last season when I missed a lot of games, so I’m just concentrating on doing well here now.
“That’s five goals in the league this season so hopefully if I keep scoring I’ll be knocking on the door.
“There are fixtures in the next few weeks and if I was involved in those it would be amazing.”
With Lyndon Dykes suspended for Scotland’s next game against Moldova, it opens the door for Clarke to potentially hand a call-up to someone like Brophy for next month’s games.
If he can maintain his scoring form, he might just give Clarke a decision to make with Scotland one win away from a World Cup playoff spot.
