Wes Thomas was delighted to open his Notts County account with a brace against Chorley and feels he will continue to find the target throughout the season.
The striker came off the bench to net the fourth and fifth goals of the 5-1 victory against the Lancashire outfit with a poacher’s finish and a rocket from range.
And Thomas was happy with the contribution he made.
“It’s nice to get off the mark and hopefully there are more to come,” he said.
“I was disappointed not to score at Ebbsfleet on Saturday but I knew I would get opportunities - and if I do that, I know I’ll score.
“I thought as long as the game was going on, the defence would get tired and if I came on and was lively, I might get a couple of chances.
“That’s what happened for the first goal – I anticipated the ball going across the box and put it in the back of the net.”
The striker was pleased with the way Notts continued to impose their style on the game despite going behind and believes the victory will be important for confidence.
“It was a difficult start but we managed to get back into it and then we stuck to what we were doing and tried to play football,” said Thomas.
“We stayed disciplined and got the ball moving to create opportunities instead of getting frustrated and just pumping it forwards.
“There’s a lot more to come from us. We’re growing in confidence and are still working on knowing each other’s roles so it’s early days.
“It’s brilliant when the crowd are there at Meadow Lane and we want to keep it that way and make this place a fortress.”
