Bowery Hoping For Sustained Run

11 October 2017

Jordan Bowery hopes that his first league goal of the season against Stevenage will be the start of a few more goals. Bowery coolly slotted home a stoppage time winner to give Crewe their first win in six league games and now the former Aston Villa, Chesterfield and Leyton Orient man is hoping to get a sustained run in David Artell’s side.

The 26-year-old accepts that competition for places up front is tough with the likes of Chris Porter and Chris Dagnall all battling it out for a starting role.

Bowery, who also scored in the Checkatrade Trophy against Newcastle United said: “It is up to me to take my opportunities.

“With the strikers we have here and perhaps only two places up for grabs, one or more are going to miss out. I am like everyone else, I have to fight for my place and make sure I do everything I can to keep it.

“The competition is good and I have had to bide my time this season because in the first month of the season, Coops, Dags and Ports were on fire for us. I had to wait but I am feeling good now. My sharpness is back after missing most of the pre-season and I am ready whenever the gaffer needs me.

“When Ports was rested the other day, he didn’t sulk or anything. He was supportive and that goes to show what a good professional he is.

Jordan added: “I just want to play as many games as I can and do my best for the team. I know it is down to me. I know I have to score and create goals and if I can do that then it is up to the manager to make the decision.”
