Ben Brereton knows the goals will come for him as Nottingham Forest head to QPR tomorrow.
The 18-year-old is always looking to improve his game and believes that a positive attitude can help him to break his goal drought.
He said: “As a striker, my job is to score goals and I haven’t scored for around six games. If I get the chance to play on the weekend I will be definitely looking for a goal.
“After the games, I always look at my clips to see what I could have done better, if it was a good chance and I should have scored. It gets me down when I see that I’ve missed a good opportunity so I just have to keep working on it and hopefully as I get older I can learn.
“The manager has been good so far, I really like him and everyone else does too. He has had a lot of faith in me and has been playing me as a striker and I am happy to keep going.
“The manager and Simon [Ireland] have been helping me to improve on areas that I need to work on, such as holding the ball up and the runs I make, so it is good.”
QPR will pose a tough test for The Reds at Loftus Road on Saturday but Brereton is confident that they can build on Tuesday night’s second half performance against Reading to earn a first win in five games.
“Things have been upbeat in training all week and we just have to take the second half performance from Tuesday into the QPR game,” he added.
“The lads are all bonding, we are all getting on and we all want to win. It is coming.
“QPR are a good team, a physical team. They are good in the air, their strikers win lots of headers and their defenders too. We just have to go there with a positive mentality, a will to win and lots of fight. If we play our stuff and take our chances it could be a good game for us.”
