Cofie Targets Goals And Play-Offs

9 February 2013

New signing John Cofie hopes to be the man that can get the goals to fire Notts County back into the Play-Off picture.

On so many occasions this season, Notts have been punished for missed chances, including the midweek loss to Stevenage. 

Caretaker boss Chris Kiwomya was given the green light to bring in the 20-year-old striker on a youth loan from Manchester United, with the deal completed in time for this weekend’s Meadow Lane clash with Crewe Alexandra. 

The former England youth international linked up with his new teammates for the first time on Friday and was eager to do everything he could to show that he is worthy of being included in Saturday’s starting 11.  

"I’m not looking to come here and expect to get into the team straight away, but I’m going to work hard and hopefully the gaffer can see enough to pick me for Saturday,” he explained. 

“I’ve spoke to the gaffer about what is needed and I’m not saying there’s pressure on me but I’ve come here to do well. 

“I’m going to go on the pitch, play my game how I know I can, so hopefully I can do stuff to help the team out.”

The powerful, fleet-footed frontman is excited about the challenge ahead and is already targeting his former loan club, Sheffield United, who are currently in sixth place, five points clear of Notts. 

“I’ve come here to try and help the team and five points is nothing,” he continued. 

“If you win a couple of games and the teams above us drop points, there you are.

“It’d be great to play well, get in the Play-Offs and hopefully promotion talk is not far away.”
