Ajose reveals impressive hunger to succeed at Crewe

Leeds United owned Nicky Ajose isn't satisfied with his record at loan side Crewe Alexandra.

Nicky Ajose has told the Crewe Chronicle that he’s not satisfied with the eight goals he’s scored for the club in League One.

The Leeds United owned forward is having a decent spell with his temporary side, but he feels he could give a lot more based on the various strengths of his game.

“I feel I am doing okay, but I’d have liked to have scored a few more goals,” he said.

“It’s a decent record I’ve got but I feel I can do more – so that’s what I’m trying to do.”

“I always feel if I get chances I’ll score, I feel I’m a good finisher, I’ve managed to put a few away recently and hopefully I can carry on.”

If he can stay fit and stay in the side then he has a good chance of increasing that goal tally over the rest of the season.

Crewe haven’t had the best of campaigns but are battling away, seven points above the bottom three in the Championship.

Ajose’s comments will please Crewe boss Steve Davis as well as Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn, who will be keeping an eye on all players on loan away from Elland Road.

Crewe have 15 games left in their League One season and there’s no reason why Ajose can’t hit double figures, develop his all round game and head back to Leeds looking to put pressure on the strikers at his parent club ahead of next season.

He’s got that hunger and desire that every striker needs to be successful and he’s relishing the challenge despite playing a division down from where his parent club currently sits.
