Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland is confident goals will come this season. He was pleased with his performance in the recent 0-0 with Aberdeen, even though he failed to find the back of the net.
He did hit the bar in the game, and so far he has scored three goals this season. However, he has not let his lack of goals bring his confidence down. Indeed, the player sounds confident that the goals will come this season as long as he keeps playing well.
“You need a wee break”
“On another day I could have had a couple of goals but that is life as a striker. You need a wee break and a wee change of luck and some of those chances could have gone in” he said.
“It is not happening just now, but I am sure it will turn eventually. I thought I played well, and I am sure if I keep that up the goals will come” he went on.
“Come on the goals”
“Hopefully it will swing soon. It is a good start to the new year, so we will take the point and move on – come on the goals!” Shankland concluded.
It is a good sign for the player that even though he has not scored regularly manager Micky Mellon has kept faith in the 25-year-old even though he has not been a regular goalscorer this season.
That shows that the manager has belief in the player, just like the player seems to have faith in his own abilities. That is a promising sign for the rest of the season for Shankland.
