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.

he can relax in games now without the urge to try and shoot and get a goal at every opportunity
