“There are a lot of injuries at the club at the moment, so I have a good chance to establish myself,” he said. “Hopefully I can do a good job. The manager has put a lot of faith in me and I just want to repay him and get the goals that he needs.
“I want to do as much as I can do and don’t want to leave any stones unturned in my career. I don’t want to waste my career on things off the pitch.
“I am almost 24 now and am cracking on. I feel I should have had a lot of games under my belt, but I haven’t and this is a little window for me to do that. I have not helped the situation in my career but hopefully I can turn the corner now.”
