After opening his goal scoring account over the weekend against a lacklustre Plymouth Argyle, Jason Scotland has revelled his best is still yet to come.
In customary swagger, the 29 year old's strike just before half time was enough to see Swansea City pick up the first away win of the season at Home Park. It has been a tumultuous summer for the striker who went under the knife in Germany to rectify a muscle strain. However Scotland has remained in upbeat mood and has admitted that he is two weeks from being fully fit despite the rigorous regime put on him by the coaching staff at the club.
Jokingly Scotland has also revelled that his team mates have urged the Trinidad and Tobago international to go and get the other 28 goals that would see him match his tally from last season
Scotland Told The WM:
|"I'm probably still two games or two weeks from getting there. I'm starting to feel good now and I'm recovering fast. There's definitely more to come from me in terms of my game and my goals. I'm still getting to my peak, but I will get there because this is a division I really want to prove myself in.|
I already feel a lot stronger, the programme set for me was to help me lose a little bit of weight, but also to get me quicker and stronger and that's important because I have to be able to hold on to the ball and bring other people into the game. It's a big role for the team and, if the ball comes to me, I have the responsibility to bring quality players into the game.
You have to work hard to do that and it's not easy because there are good defenders in this league, tougher players you come up against. People say it's all good I have scored goals in League One, but this is the big league where I have to show it. I have already promised myself I will prove people wrong and it's a good start. But hopefully we can all carry on and it's good to get that first goal - but the lads have already said there's 28 to go for me!"
