Talented front-man confident in new look system...
SCORER of our first goal of the new campaign, Romaine Sawyers, has warned opponents that there are more goals to come.
The St.Kitts and Nevis international smashed home a thunderbolt from the edge of the area to open the scoring on Saturday but has refused to reveal his goal target for the season.
“It was a good start to the new season,” he smiled. “We were unfortunate not to take all three points because we were in a commanding position for long periods of the game.
“With a new formation I think we showed we can score a lot of goals.
“For me personally, it’s one closer to the target I’ve set with the gaffer. I’m not going to reveal that target but when I reach it I’ll remind you about it.”
“Nine times out of ten I think the keeper expects you to go across goal. So he took one step and his bodyweight didn’t allow him to get back across goal and thankfully it ended up in the top corner.
“I had enough time to think through the finish so I’m glad it came off."
Sawyers was deployed in a familiar number-ten role against Oldham Athletic but insists having more attacking personnel on the pitch gives him an added freedom.
“With Cook and Bradshaw up-front it allowed me to make runs that went unnoticed from deep,” he revealed. “The two up front occupy their centre-backs and I can make a late run into the box which worked perfectly.”
“This formation will allow us to score goals. If all of us can chip in and help Bradders with the goals then it can only be a good thing going forward.
“We saw how successful it was with Swindon and Bristol City last season and I think it’s a very good system.
“Once we get used to playing it competitively I think it will really suit us.”
