“There is so much competition for places at a club like this. Whether that’s from the start or to come on. This is probably like an interview for the game next week and we are all playing for a spot. I’m just trying to work on my game, I came back into the team in the Dundee game, I managed to get two goals and obviously that is something I am trying to add to my game, to get more goals.

“We are never going to be the perfect team, we never want to be the perfect team because we will always keep striving to be better, in terms of being more clinical in front of goal that is something we can go away and look at and work on.”
