Oldham's Kuqi would swap goals for points

Oldham striker Shefki Kuqi would swap his recent form in front of goal for points on the board in League One. The former Newcastle and Blackburn Rovers striker's brace against Crewe on Tuesday night took his tally to 10 in 14 games since joining Paul Dickov's side in August.

"Am I enjoying my football? Well, yes and no," he said. "It is probably one of the best spells of my career but I won't be happy with that. I think now I've played a few games and seen the opposition I should have a few more, but that's football.

"If I could give five of my goals and swap them with five more points, I'd rather the team had five more points and I had five less goals.

"When I joined I had no idea because I hadn't played this league and I didn't know what the teams are like but now I'm looking at the teams and thinking it is a good chance for us. I don't know what the rest of the team are thinking but in my opinion we should be at least four or five positions higher in the table. That's why I sometimes get upset."
