Abraham Still Eyes Golden Boot

Tammy Abraham still has desires on finishing top scorer in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

The on-loan Chelsea forward’s brace in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Wolves moved him on to 21 league goals for the campaign.

He trails current top scorer, Leeds United’s Chris Wood, by three goals, with Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle on 22 and Glenn Murray of Brighton & Hove Albion tied with Abraham on 21.

However, the 19-year-old’s first target is to ensure City remain a Championship club next season.

“Obviously it’s only one game and nothing is sorted yet, but the boys have put in a cracking performance against Wolves,” Abraham told Bristol City Player HD.

“Of course we’ve had bad results this season but I feel like we can beat anyone on our best day.

“We want to stay in this division and we’re good enough to do that. We had plenty of meetings leading into the game and we had to pick ourselves up (following the 5-0 loss at Preston).

“We know serious the situation is. We need wins and we have to give our all in the last five games now.”

He added: “I’m motivating myself and I’ll be doing everything I can to fight to finish in that top place (in the scoring charts).

“The boys are helping me to get my goals. The number one target is to keep the club in the division though.

“I wouldn’t say I’m surprised with how well things have gone for me personally. I knew what I was getting into; I knew it would be tough but I felt like I could adapt.

“I felt settled as soon as I arrived. It feels like a family and I can’t thank everybody enough. I’m delighted with how it’s gone.

“I don’t have a target. I’ll just keep pushing for the first spot.”
