Lee Trundle is hoping that his double strike at Peterborough United yesterday will persuade the club to sign him on a permanent deal.
The Bristol City striker is back at the Liberty Stadium after the leaving Swansea City two years ago in a £1m move to Ashton Gate.
The scouser is out of favour with Robins boss Gary Johnson and he's looking to earn a permanent contract with the Swans in the New Year, after his loan move expires.
Trundle came on as a second half substitute at London Road yesterday and he scored twice in just 8 minutes to put us in front after going behind. Trundle was moments away from winning us the game thanks to his superb individual strikes, but Mclean equalised for the Posh in the 5th minute of injury time.
Trundle was disappointed with the result but he said:
'I'm hoping for a long-term deal in January, I haven't hidden that's what I'm after,'
'All I can do is keep knuckling down and when I'm needed get on and pop up with some important goals.'
'Coming off the field it feels like a defeat after conceding that late on, all the lads were down in the dressing room,' Trundle told BBC Sport Wales.
'Although I'm not pleased with the result the goals may have helped me a little bit.
'The manager just said to go on, get myself round that box and make myself dangerous.
'That's where I like to be, to get the ball in and around the box, into my feet and get my shots off.
'Luckily for myself both went in. I definitely wasn't looking for anyone to pass to!'
Paulo Sousa is not hinting as to whether or not he'll be keeping Trundle in January, he said:
'Lee was part of my plans when I brought him here. We have until next year to decide and then we decide.'
