Goal count important to 'Beano'
Oxford striker James Constable insists he is desperate to get more minutes in the pitch after enduring the longest goal drought of his career.
The 28-year-old finally rediscovered his touch during Tuesday's win at Cheltenham to end a run which stretched to 21 games without a goal. But Constable, who's known as 'Beano' to his team-mates, revealed confidence was never an issue during his barren spell and is keen to regain a central role in the side. "In training, I'm scoring goals day-in day-out, it's not like I'm lacking in confidence," he told the Oxford Mail. "I know I can score goals - 80 for the club in four years shows I can do that. Obviously it's been unfortunate this season I haven't played as many games as I would have liked. "But I'm desperate to get out there and score some goals. But whatever team is picked, I can assure the fans that the XI out there are going to do the best they can to get the win."
