The goals will come

Thomas confident of finding the target

20 September 2019

Notts County striker Wes Thomas is confident goals are to come from him in the weeks ahead.

The forward’s season tally currently stands at two following his brace in the 5-1 demolition of Chorley last month.

And, while he acknowledges he should have more goals to his name, Thomas is not dwindling on any missed chances.

“I always feel that, with the way I play, I’m going to get opportunities,” he said.

“I try not to focus on the chances I’ve had, thinking ‘I should have put that away.’ I always just think ‘I’m going to score goals' and try to stay positive on the situation.

“Eventually I’m going to go on a run. I said to the boys that I’ll probably score five in a game soon!”

Thomas is generally content with his start to the season following what he described as an ‘adjustment period’ – both for him in terms of building match fitness and for his team-mates in understanding his style of play.

And, now he’s fully settled in, he’s looking forward to being spurred on by the threat of Nathan Tyson, Kristian Dennis and Kyle Wootton taking his place.

“We all want to be in the starting 11, so it’s pushing all of us,” he said. “It’s tough but it’s something you want to be part of.

“We all get on really well. There’s no bitterness between us.

“We understand that if you’re doing the business, you deserve your place.”
