Crystal Palace frontman Kwesi Appiah is determined to prove that he can score goals for Notts County in the Football League, after becoming a hit in non-league.
Prior to teaming up with the Magpies earlier this month, Appiah had netted an impressive 10 goals in just 13 league starts for Cambridge United in the Skrill Premier.
This followed on from his last spell outside the top four divisions, where he tucked away a remarkable 35 goals in just 34 games for Margate, which ultimately led to his switch to the Eagles.
Appiah is out to send a message back to his parent club by showing that he can continue to score in Sky Bet League 1.
The lively striker is eager to earn a longer Notts loan deal and play his part in helping the club to secure a place in Sky Bet League 1 for the new season.
He told Magpie Player: “Scoring goals at Cambridge gave me massive confidence and hitting the net is what you need to do as a striker.
“That record speaks for itself and I was confident enough to take it on now into the Football League, where I can hopefully get some starts and some more goals here.
“On a serious note, I want to prove myself at a higher level and I hope that can happen here – that’s my plan.
“I want to let Crystal Palace and everyone know that I can score goals at this level, so if that works out it works out well for me, Notts County and Crystal Palace.
“I’ll work hard on the training pitch and I’ll fight as hard as I can for that starting place."
Appiah is in contention for a start when Notts face Preston North End at Deepdale this Saturday.
