Cedric Van Der Gun says he's got a lot more to offer after an impressive performance in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.
The Dutch winger scored the first goal to help Swansea City beat Barnet 3-0 to progress through to the second round - where they'll face Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.
Van Der Gun has found it rather difficult to get a regular role in the first team and he could find it even more difficult following the signing of Chelsea's Scott Sinclair. But he performed well on Tuesday night and caused plenty of problems for Barnet down the wing.
His skill and pace also helped to win us a penalty early on in the game, but Shefki Kuqi's spot kick hit the bar.
Van Der Gun said he was pleased with his performance, but believes he's got a lot more to offer:
"I know what I am capable of and I really want to show that to everyone,"
"I feel I have a lot more to offer. I played well, but I know I can do more.
"Offensively the game went very well for us as a team, a couple of things could be a little bit better but for me it was one of the first times I felt I played very well against a good opponent for a long time.
"I`m not the biggest, but I used to score a few headers because it`s all about timing, if you get up earlier than your opponent you can get your head to the ball."
"In midfield and up front there is lots of competition for places.
"I`m a winger and I want to be playing.
"We have signed another winger so we will have to wait and see what happens, but I am going to do my best.
"I can`t say what`s going to happen because at the moment I really don`t know. We will have to wait and see what happens.
"If I can train well and play, I know what I am capable of.
"I love playing football and when I am on the pitch I always enjoy myself.
"I want to show what I`ve got, especially in the games, because that`s the most important time, but also in the training sessions as well."
Van Der Gun also added that the team played too defensively under Paulo Sousa last season which didn't suit his more offensive style:
"We had a great season last year, getting seventh place was a great achievement, but unfortunately we couldn`t quite make it to the play-offs.
"But I still think we played a little too defensively and my strengths as a player are offensively.
"I would rather play a little bit more up front where there is more space for me to use. I can do a lot of good things there."
