Swansea City Alex Samuel
5th October 2016
Swansea City youngster Alex Samuel revealed his objective this season is to get more games and goals.
The 21-year-old striker, who was on loan at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton last season, netted the Swans' winner against Newport County on Tuesday during the 2-1 Checkatrade Trophy victory at Rodney Parade.
And Samuel, making only his second start this season, admitted that waiting for his chance had been a challenge.
"It is tough when you are not getting game-time, but that is football," said the Neath-born striker.
"My faith has kept me strong. You have to keep working hard and be prepared to take the opportunity when it comes.
"I've been working hard and my chance came on Tuesday - I am glad I took it. It was an amazing feeling to score the winning goal, the game could not have gone any better.
"It was a close game but we did control it. Playing teams from the Football League is much more physical than the development leagues.
"The competition (Checkatrade Trophy) is a good test to see where our strength and ability is, which is a good challenge we enjoy.
"I must look to push on from here, make sure I push for more game time, score more goals and keep developing to become a better player."
