Striker Enoch Showunmi feels much better now that he finally has something off his chest – a goal.
Showunmi netted for the first time since August in the Magpies’ 2-1 triumph over Sheffield United at Meadow Lane by directing a pacy Jamal Campbell-Ryce cross over the line with his chest.
The former Tranmere Rovers frontman had started the season in fine form with goals in back-to-back games against the Blades and Fleetwood Town but was later sidelined with a back injury.
Since returning in November, Showunmi has seen limited pitch time but has been given the opportunity to shine with starts in the most recent three games.
The County number nine has looked stronger in each match and delivered arguably his finest showing in the Black and White stripes on Saturday afternoon at the focal point of the team.
Showunmi was delighted to get his goal to help Notts complete a comeback in front of the biggest home crowd of the campaign.
He said: “Jama put one in a minute earlier so I knew it was going into that near post area and luckily it’s hit my chest and gone in, so it was great to get the equaliser quite soon after they’d scored.
“It was good to get the goal because it’s been a long time and I’ve obviously been out for a long time.
“I’ve had back-to-back 90 minutes, which is good for the fitness, and I’m feeling extremely fit.
“I’ve said to the gaffer that I’m raring to go and I’m ready to play.
“He’s played me in the last three games and thankfully I was on the scoresheet.”
