Zoko: My Best Position

23 February 2013

Francois Zoko hopes to be given the chance to play in what he describes as his best position from now on.

Zoko came off the bench at half time to great effect and helped the Magpies come from behind to beat Bury at Meadow Lane.

The forward scored two impressive goals in front of the Kop, as Notts went on to defeat the Shakers 4-1. 

Zoko had not found the net on home soil since September 2012 but was delighted to play such a big part in the victory, which he describes as the most important thing, and feels that he can thrive in the central attacking role handed to him by first team boss Chris Kiwomya. 

“It was the first game that I played the position I played at Carlisle, in behind the striker where I can go into the gap to look for something,” he told the press. 

“When I play there I know I’m not the best player in the world and sometimes things don’t happen sometimes it can happen like this.

“I can have one or two chances like against Bury and I’m happy for the team and me too.”

He added: “I like it there because I can feel the game and feel the situation – it is my position.
“I try every time to give my best and when I came here I played on the wing -  but I played.

“This is my best position, when I am a little bit free, and I know that I can make a difference.

“Even if I don’t score I can help my friends score and I hope I can continue like this.”
