Gower : Backing Scotland To Shine In Championship

Gower : Backing Scotland To Shine In Championship

Swansea midfielder Mark Gower has given his backing to Jason Scotland after the Striker recaptured his form against Wolves on the weekend..

Scotland doubled his goal scoring account for the season with a brace of goals against promotion candidates Wolverhampton Wanderers. It is that form shown on Saturday that Gower believes that if the 29 year old can replicate week in week out, the Trinidad and Tobago international can cause problems in the second tier of the British game. Gower has also urged fans to be patient with the striker then he will produce the goods.

Since his arrival from Southend United on a free transfer in the summer the Londoner had failed to show why Swansea manager Roberto Martinez coveted the winger. However the midfielder is beginning to find his feet in his new surroundings and is proving to be a canny acquisition to the Swansea ranks. Gower played a pivotal role in the 3-1 win over Mick McCarthy's side and was a shade unlucky not to open his goal scoring account for the season after officials disallowed his 37 th minute goal after Jordi Gomez was adjudged to have got a touch in and offside position to steer the the ball past wolves keeper Carl Ikeme.

Gower Told The WM:

"It looked like dropping him did the trick.It obviously worked because he`s gone out and shown just what a good player he is.And it`s great playing with him when he`s in that kind of form because you know the ball will hold up with him, you know you can make your runs without him giving it away and he will use you if it`s right.He`s great off both feet and there`s more to just goals with him - he`s got his own unique style and if things don`t come off, with the way he`s laid back, then it can frustrate.'

"So I`m really pleased for him because he was under a bit of pressure, but got his goals which speak for themselves.He will get more at this level, I`m sure of that. We just have to get him the ball around the box and, if people are patient with him, he will do well, I`m sure of that."

Gower on his disallowed goal:
'I didn`t think he touched it - not that it mattered in the end.I`ve hit the post a couple of times - but hopefully it will come soon.I`m sure getting one will have the right impact on me and hopefully it`s just a matter of time."
