Swansea midfielder Thomas Butler is adamant that his goal drought will end and has given urged another goal shy team mate Mark Gower to do the same.
Gower thought he had opened his goal scoring account against Wolves two weeks ago but his effort was chalked off as Jordi Gomez was adjudged to have got the final touch in an offside position. For a player that scored 10 goals in the championship with Southend United in the 2006/07 season Gower has admitted that it has been on his mind but his ever improving form should see the Londoner have more chances end his baron spell, starting with Ipswich tomorrow afternoon.
Butler on the other hand has only made 9 appearances so far this term but has bemoaned his lack of goals, despite chipping in with 6 goals last season the Irishman has yet to find the back of the net this term. Urging his team mates to take their chances the former Sunderland man is adamant that his fortunes will turn.
Butler Told the SWEP:
|'We've both got into some great positions so far.But whether it's been a last-ditch tackle, a block or a deflection, they just haven't gone in.You just think, I would give anything for a bobbly goal right now, something that just rolls into your path and is nice and easy. But that's not the way it's happened. Mark's 'goal' against Wolves was a prime example.It was a great strike by him, a brilliant finish, but one little thing meant it was controversially disallowed.'|
'I said to him after the game: 'How unlucky was that?' and he was just shaking his head as if to say 'Give me a break'.That's just typical of the way things are going at the moment, but it's easier to take because the team are doing well.You don't get the chances you get in League One .Last year we might get five chances to score whereas this year we only get two.'
'We know we need to be more clinical, but I think that will come as we adjust to the division.''Wingers average around seven or eight a season,' the Irishman adds, 'so I would be happy with something around what I got last year again.
'I think that if I could just get a couple of goals, that would kick-start me and I could get a bit of a run going.You look at some players and the ball seems to roll to them for nice little tap-ins. But we never seem to get stuff like that. We get wonder goals where there are 50 passes before we score.'
'I think it's just a matter of time, though, before the goals start to come. You can't be unlucky forever.'
