Gorre sets first-team target
10th February 2015
Kenji Gorre revealed his first-team target after another two goals for Swans Under-21s against Crystal Palace on Monday.
The former Manchester United man grabbed a first-half brace at Landore as the Swans came from behind to lead against Palace.
Despite a stoppage-time equaliser from the visitors, the game saw Gorre take his season's tally to 12 goals in all competitions for the Under-21s, who returned to the top of the Professional Development League Two South table.
And the winger wants to cap a fine season personally by breaking into Garry Monk's first-team squad between now and May.
"That's my aim between now and the end of the season," said Gorre. "I've set myself that target and I just have to keep working hard. There's lots of competition at the moment and I know I have to be patient.
"I want to just keep doing well and if the goals are coming then that's a bonus. But I want to help the team and if I can get assists as well then that's great."
Monday's draw against Palace saw the Under-21s return to the top of the table - and extend their unbeaten run to 13 games.
And Gorre played a key part, scoring a fine solo goal to equalise before seeing a speculative effort from 25 yards find the net with helping hand from the goalkeeper.
"It looked like we would see the game out in the closing stages but they were a constant threat from corners and we knew what to expect," said Gorre.
"But it was nice to get back on the scoresheet. The second goal was fortunate but the only thing on my mind was to get a shot at away and fortunately I hit the target and it went in."
