He quite likes a goal against Dumbarton- but Falkirk striker Declan McManus insists he’s just happy to be finding the net so consistently.
The Ross County loanee netted a brace against the Sons as Falkirk ran out 3-0 winners. It takes him to six goals in three games against Jim Duffy’s side in recent times.
Overall though he’s been a key player for the Bairns. He’s the talisman at the Falkirk Stadium, netting 13 in 23 matches so far this term.
His goals have helped lift Falkirk up to third ahead of their trip to Peterhead. The most he’s scored in one season is 18 back in the 2014/15 season, so you’d like to think that record could be broken this term.
McManus says it’s been nice to get on the scoresheet so regularly for Falkirk, whilst he’s also benefiting from the experience of new boss Lee Miller.
“I’m just trying to score as many goals as I can,” said McManus. “When I first come in I scored in my first three games then I had a wee dull patch. It’s just what happens in football.
“I’m just trying to be as consistent as I can and I never scored last week so I wanted to make sure I got myself on the scoresheet.
“I’ve played in this league before and it’s always a tight one. It usually goes all the way but we’re willing to fight for every point. I’m trying to learn as much as I can off Lee.
“He’s had a great career and I don’t think he’s putting himself on the bench to bring himself on! I always respected him as a player and he’s helped me a lot. I’m starting to show that with the goals.”
