Baker-Richardson targets more goals

The striker, who joined from National League North side Leamington FC in August, scored his second of the season as the young Swans beat Colchester United 5-1 in the Premier League Cup last week.

The 22-year-old’s assists have helped his side to victories over Cheltenham Town and Newport County in the Checkatrade Trophy, but Baker-Richardson had not hit the back of the net since August.

“A goal has been long overdue, but I never give up," he said.

“I hope now I have broken my duck I can move forward from here and help the team to more wins.

“It has been a frustrating season. I have been getting the game-time but not converting the chances I have had. That needs to change.”

Baker-Richardson scored 21 times for Leamington last season before making the switch to South Wales.

And he hopes for a return to form as the under-23s prepare visit Liverpool in Premier League 2 this Friday (12.30pm).

“I know I can score, I proved that last season,” he added.

“I feel there is more to come from me. But I have to stay focused and keep working hard.

“Liverpool are top and have made a great start in Premier League 2, but we want to continue our good run in the league and must go there with the belief that we can match them.”
