"Having been unlucky with a couple of injuries at the start of this season, I haven't been able to play too much football but there's a lot of games coming up to try and get into the team and from when I'm picked, try and impress and help the side climb the table."

He is in the on the substitutes bench for this afternoon's home game against Maidenhead United.
