Dunfermline’s Kevin O’Hara is hoping to avoid the tag of ‘super sub’ as he gets set to feature against his former club Alloa this afternoon.

O’Hara has been in and out of the Pars team this season, with more than a few performances coming as a substitute.

O’Hara hopes to take his chances when given a start to force his way into the first-team. Although he does accept that it won’t be easy, as the Pars have a fair number of forwards on their books.

“You want to be the guy”

“It is never a great thing to be named as a super sub. You want to be the guy who is starting every week and scoring goals” he said.

“It is obviously more difficult to get into the Dunfermline side (than it was at Alloa) but I am going to keep working hard, and hopefully I can score goals every week and be playing every week” O’Hara commented.

O’Hara has scored seven goals in 20 appearances this season, three of those came against his former side Alloa, in a 4-1 win back in October.

“Help me improve in my game”

Perhaps manager Stevie Crawford will have that game in mind when he picks his team for today’s game. O’Hara has disclosed that he and the manager talk regularly about how the 22-year-old can improve his game.

“I have conversations with the manager every week, and we always try and help each other. He tries to help me improve in my game and shows me some clips from previous games that I can improve on.

“It is always good when the manager has been a striker himself when he has played” O’Hara concluded.
