Don hoping to impress enough to earn a longer term contract at Blues
Don Cowan is targeting games and goals as he looks to earn a long-term contract with Blues.
Having made his debut for the Club against Yeovil Town on Tuesday night and got through 70 minutes, Cowan is hoping he’s done enough to earn a starting spot against Hartlepool United on Saturday in League 2.
Don’s short-term contract means he’s looking to impress in as many games as possible, and as a striker, that means scoring goals too.
A broken ankle while at Stevenage means the last couple of years have been frustrating for Don, but after four weeks of pre-season training with Blues he says he’s now feeling better than he’s felt in a long time.
Don said: “I’m just really glad to be back playing football to be honest having suffered a broken ankle when I was at Stevenage. I’m almost back to full fitness, I’m probably feeling better than I’ve felt in a long time.
“I just want to try and score goals and make as many appearances as possible so I can do my best to impress the manager and the fans and earn a longer contract.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far and I would love to stay. It’s a great place to be so I’ve just got to try and see what happens. My aim to just do as well as I can and hopefully be here for longer.
“I feel like I’m almost at full fitness and know I can do much more when I get to that stage. The fitness levels here are absolutely brilliant, the lads have worked so hard in pre-season and I’m pushing myself as much as I can.
“Hopefully I can be involved against Hartlepool on Saturday. It’s a long journey there so we’ve got to prepare right. I just hope I am involved in the game and can try and get my first goal. It’s another chance to pick up three points.
“We want to try and put a winning run together in the league now as that’s our main focus. It’s a tough place to go but if we approach the game in the right manner, we can come away with the three points.”
