"I definitely need to add that side of things to my game" says Downes

Flynn Downes says he needs to add more goals to his game.

The Town midfielder headed in his first goal for the Club this season and the second of his career in the 3-0 win over Shrewsbury at the weekend to help keep Blues at the top of League One.

“I was pleased with the goal and I know I definitely need to add that side of things to my game,” Flynn told the Club website.

“The manager has encouraged me to get into the box and it’s one of my personal targets for this season, to score more goals. It’s something I should be doing.”

The Academy graduate has impressed this season and is reported to be interesting Premier League clubs but the 20-year-old is not fazed by the speculation.

“I guess it’s nice in a way but I don’t really take a lot of notice,” added Flynn.

“I’m enjoying my football here and we are playing well and are top of the league. That’s all that concerns me, helping the boys win promotion.”
