"I'm hoping to try and bring that into my game a bit more this season."

He added: "The gaffer [Jim Bentley] always tells me to be positive and get my shots off at goals. It shows the belief he's got in me."

"If we can some consistency, get a good little run going and get plenty of points as early as we can, potentially we could have a very good season," he added.
