Swansea striker Jason Scotland believes that he did not have to prove himself despite coming under huge pressure from some sections of the Liberty Stadium faithful.
Speaking after the 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday Scotland got back to his best by grabbing a brace and assisting in Jordi Gomez's 28 second opener. In truth it could have been a four star show for the man from Morvant. Clattering the crossbar in the first half and inches away from scoring from close range in the second half it could have been a more productive afternoon from last seasons leauge one top goalscorer.
However the 29 year old has admitted that an ommition from the side than ran out 2-0 winners over Preston did him good after a summer of of recuperation. After going under the knife in Germany the striker had failed to set alight the Championship and his cause was not helped by a call up to the Trinidad and Tobago squad, in which he did not play a substantial role.
What a difference a month makes and with the former Dundee man setting his sights on becoming the championship's top goalscorer.
Scotland Told The SWEP:
|'I didn't feel I had to prove anything.The gaffer had a word with me (before Preston) because obviously I'm just coming back from injury, I've been playing a lot of games and I went to Trinidad. I haven't had much of a pre-season and the gaffer thought I needed a rest."|
"And it must have been the right decision because I came back today and did the business.I think the rest did me some good. I was feeling fresh and I think it was probably my best performance of the season.I want to get to the same level every week and be consistent every week. As a striker I want to be challenging to be top goalscorer and you never know I was up there last season in League One and I would like to be up there again at the end of the season.'
'It's something I'm obviously looking at.I was scoring goals last season.I was top goalscorer and I still wasn't getting picked. It's something I can't get my head around. But if I keep scoring goals and if I'm picked in the squad I'll be happy to travel and play.'
