Striker Sets His Next Target

18 April 2013

Striker Enoch Showunmi feels that he is growing in confidence with each game and is currently desperate to get his name on the scoresheet.

Showunmi has found a run of games hard to come by this term but under Chris Kiwomya, he has been a regular in the matchday squad. 

Six of the 30-year-old’s nine league starts have been recorded since the current Notts boss took over in February.

Showunmi is still to score under Kiwomya but is determined to repay the faith shown in him by hitting the net for the first time since his winner in the January 1-0 win over Oldham Athletic. 

“I’ve had a few games now and it’s been about building on my performances and getting my fitness up,” he said. 

“I feel now that my fitness is lasting 75 to 80 minutes and it was just about playing games.

“There hasn’t been that many games for me this season but now I just need to get that goal.”

Saturday’s opponents Doncaster Rovers can clinch the npower League 1 title should they beat the Magpies and both Sheffield United and Brentford drop points. 

Showunmi feels that the squad will head to the Keepmoat Stadium full of confidence, following the 3-1 triumph over Colchester United last weekend, and are determined to prove a point against the table toppers.  

“It’s good to get back to winning ways because I think every player in the squad will say that it’s not as good as it should have been,” explained the former Tranmere Rovers man.  

“The players in that dressing room should be higher up the table and for one reason or another it hasn’t worked out.

“We just want to finish the season strongly so that we can push on next season as a club.

“They’re top of the league and we can see where we’re at in terms of the team.

“If we can go out there and play well and get three points then we can say that this season we haven’t played as well as we can do.”
