Last season`s top scorer Jason Scotland is hungry to add to this season`s tally, but admits that chances are hard to come by when he is the Swan`s solitary front man.
The Trinidad and Tobago international bagged his fourth of the campaign in the home win against Watford on Sunday and feels that there is much more to come.
Speaking to the Evening Post he said:
'It was great to get the result and it was nice for me to get on the scoresheet.
I'm a little disappointed I haven't got a few more this season. I'm not getting as many chances as I did last year, but hopefully I can get a few more in time.
'It's hard as the lone striker because you are quite often taking two defenders on and the ball will break to them. If you have two strikers the ball can break to one of your team-mates, as happened for Bussy's goal.
'It's a bit frustrating for me at times, but the football people who come to watch our games will see how difficult my role is.
'The crowd seem to get on my back quite easily so there's pressure all around, but it's a job I'm willing to do because I want to play.'
Whilst he may want to play, the likelihood of him doing so against Birmingham have been hampered by a call up to the Trinidad national squad.
'The game is on the Wednesday and then we play Birmingham on the Friday night, so I'm not sure whether the gaffer will have a word with my coach.
'I don't know if the gaffer will fancy me going back, but it's an important game — we need a point to reach the next qualifying phase — and I have to do my international duties.
'I want to play for my country but I want to play against Birmingham too. They are one of the top sides in the division and you want to prove yourself against the top sides, but if I'm realistic I think I will probably be on the bench.
'I don't want to be, but I have to accept that I will be tired and the body might not be ready.
'There are other players in this squad who can do a job for the team and maybe I will be on the bench, coming on for maybe 15 or 20 minutes.'
