Gower Can't Wait For Season To Start After Hatrick

Gower Can't Wait For Season To Start After Hatrick

Mark Gower says he can't wait for the new season to start after scoring his first ever hatrick in yesterday's 4-1 home win against Kilmarnock in a pre-season friendly.

The winger failed to score a single goal last season but already this Summer he has netted 4, the other goal he scored in the 2-0 win against Palamos during the Spain Tour.

"His third goal was a cracker similar to Tate's goal from fare out."
Yesterday's hatrick, which he completed thanks to a stunning right-footed strike, will give the former Southend United midfielder a huge boost in confidence ahead of the season's opening match next Saturday away at new-boys Leicester City.

Mark Gower told BBC Sport:

'Last year was pretty frustrating, I'm not used to going through a whole season without scoring,'

'It's nice to get a hat-trick, the first of my career and build a bit of confidence going into the season.'

'Last year I was trying so hard coming to a new club I wanted to get off to a good start,'

'Although I felt my level of performance was up to standard, playing in a front three I needed to score goals and that never happened.

'I think I put more and more pressure on myself but I've had a long summer to think about it and I feel that I need to relax in front of goal and today has proved right.'

'I can't wait for the season to start,'

'I've done enough as I can today. If I get the call, I'll be ready.'

Huge claps toward Gower, but you know what... You just have to believe the jinx & superstition with last years shirt number.

We've had a change of manager as well though, the number 11 shirt was just a phsycological thing

Yeah, but I mean not a single goal last season... Anyway regardless I can't wait until curtain up next Saturday.
