â€śOf course, I realise I need to make the most of any opportunity I get,â€ť he said.
â€śI was maybe disappointed that I wasnâ€™t on from the start, but you have to quickly get your mind right and get in the mindset that if youâ€™re called upon, you get into the game.
â€śHopefully Iâ€™ve proved that Iâ€™ve got the confidence and ability to get into the team.
â€śI hope Iâ€™ve put my hand up for Saturday.

â€śIn every game, I try to do my best and I want to show the manager that Iâ€™m capable and confident in my own ability."
