Faal full of confidence that more goals will come

10 November 2023

Confidence is high for striker Mo Faal who has backed himself to score plenty more goals this season.

The West Bromwich Albion loanee netted his sixth goal of the campaign in the win over Burton Albion in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy.

Speaking ahead of the trip to AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League Two, Faal admitted he feels he is currently in a good place.

“I’m very happy to have scored that amount of goals so far and I’m only going to score more because I’m confident at the minute, I’m playing good football and I’d like to think I’m on form,” he said.

“I’d like to think that will carry on. It’s my first time in the league and I’m happy to be on six but I have my goals set for the end of the season and I want to break that.”

The loan move has given Faal his first taste of EFL action and he is delighted with the manner he has taken to life in league football.

The 20-year-old spent time on loan with AFC Fylde in National League North last term and has welcomed what the added intensity in League Two has brought to his development.

He said: “It’s much different in the league - it’s what matters. If you can score a goal in the league, it matters. It’s faster, you’ve got to be more proactive rather than reactive and you’ve got to be stronger. I’ve found holding the ball up harder.

“If I can keep doing what I’m doing, I’m sure with the help of the manager and the coaching staff, I’ll be alright.

“This was the next step for me after doing well in the National League North. League Two is perfect for me to establish myself, put my name out there and score some goals.

“So far, I think I’m doing alright because I’m scoring goals. I just want to keep on that upward trajectory for the rest of the season and who knows what comes after that.”
