Uche Ikpeazu says he is keen to stay and is hungry for goals
.Some late persistence from Uche Ikpeazu saw the on-loan Watford striker notch the killer third goal against Gillingham at the weekend. Ikpeazu, 19, has formed a promising partnership with fellow striker Nicky Ajose and both forwards inspired Crewe to a 3-1 over Andy Hessenthaler’s Gills – a result which saw the Railwaymen move out of the bottom four
Ikpeazu, 19 added to his debut goal against Doncaster Rovers back in late November and the popular forward told Crewe Alex Player after the game that he wasn’t leaving the pitch without a goal.
Uche told Crewe Alex Player: “I am hungry for goals and I wasn’t leaving the pitch without one!
“I had missed a couple of chances in the game and I thought I was a bit unlucky with one of them but I have that mentality to keep going and be persistent.
“I am a physical player and I am not going to change that. The Crewe management are helping me. They are teaching me to use my body even more and are making me a better player.
“I enjoy it here and I’m enjoying my football. I don’t want to go anywhere else and I would like to extend my time here. The manager, the staff and the players all believe in me and I know that if I can remain injury free then I will score goals for the team.
He added: “There are 22 games to go this season and we are all optimistic about doing well. Everyone is feeling good.”
