Ajose: Finish the season on a high

6 May 2016

NICKY Ajose says that there is a determination among the Town playing staff to finish the 2015/16 campaign on a high.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash with Shrewsbury Town at SN1 (12.30pm KO), the striker admitted that it had been an ‘up and down’ season for the club.

“(It’s been a) mixed season, really,” he said. “From a team perspective we’ve been up and down. From a personal point of view, mixed as well. I would have liked to have scored more goals. I would have liked to have been here at the start of the season - I missed a couple (of games) last month which is also disappointing because I was in a good run. I’ve still managed to get a decent tally and hopefully I’ll be able to score a couple more at the weekend and finish (the season) off on a high.

“For the fans it will be good to see us finish with a win. It’s been a difficult season and it’s important that we finish on a high and show that this year has been a bit of a flash in the pan, hopefully. There’s a real determination from this side to finish on a high.”

The frontman also lauded the contribution of Head Coach, Luke Williams in his development at Swindon Town and declared that this season has been the most prolific of his career so far.

“When I came back it’s like I’d never been away,” he said. “He (Luke) teaches me new things, he helps me with the mental side of the game and fills me with a lot of confidence. I owe a lot to Luke for the time and effort he’s put into me.

“The stats show that it has been (my best goal-scoring season). Obviously the last few games I’ve not managed to score but I’ve not had any chances - I hit the bar with a free-kick but that’s about it. That’s just how it goes sometimes as a striker: you go a couple of games with no chances then you get a game where you get four or five so you just need to be ready and switched on.”
