Smith Hungry For More Goals

Korey Smith is keen to add more goals to his game next season.

The midfielder scored twice in 54 appearances in 2014/15 – both of which arrived in the space of 28 second-half minutes against Cheltenham Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last October.

But Smith is hungry for more after repeating the feat with a brace in yesterday’s 5-0 win over Brislington and Keynsham Town.

“It was nice to get a couple of goals,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“Obviously one went under the keeper, but it’s always nice to score and it was a good run out.

“I would like to get a few more. Obviously I scored two in the cup but didn’t score a league goal last season, so that’ll be a little personal goal of mine.

“But if I don’t score a goal again and we do what we did last season then I won’t be complaining!

“My position is quite defensive and obviously I’m not the biggest so I don’t really go up for set-pieces and I’m not usually at that end of the pitch, but if I could break away sometimes and get a couple of goals, that would be nice.”

It was City’s third annual Community Match following previous local affairs with Ashton & Backwell United and Portishead Town.

“All the little kids have been here playing football and running around getting their signatures, so it’s lovely for them and a really good day for the club,” Smith added.

“Obviously there was a little bit of rust there from the boys but that’s what these games are for and we’ll get rid of that.

“We’ve been working really hard and the lads are quite fit already. We’ll carry on now and look forward to the season.”
