Matty Virtue hopes his goal against Accrington Stanley will be the first of many this season, given the way he likes to get forward.
The midfielder, who struck a 92nd minute equaliser at the Wham Stadium, believes his current role in the side will present him with plenty more opportunities.
“I feel like I can get goals and I feel I can get forward from midfield, especially with Jay being more of a deeper player. That allows me to push forward and I did that against Accrington. I think I can come into this team and bring goals,” Virtue said.
His appearance at Accrington was his second league start of the campaign, with the 22-year-old having to bide his time following an injury-hit start to the summer.
“Nobody wants to get injured in pre-season, especially with a new manager coming in. You want to put your mark on the team and get that run in the team. I didn’t really have that, and I’m only really getting that now,” he admitted.
“I’ve now had two games in a week, and this was my first 90 minutes. Hopefully I can kick-on from there.”
