Leeds United star Alex Mowatt wants one more goal to make it 10

Alex Mowatt

The midfielder set himself a target of ten goals this season and is currently on nine.

Leeds United go into the final game of the season against Rotherham United this weekend probably impatient to get the troubled campaign over with.

Off the pitch, things have been a mess. On the pitch the club have simply been up and down. They have gone on good runs of form and poor runs of form, leaving Leeds United set to finish the season in 15th or 16th position in the table.

One reason behind their lack of success has been their lack of proficiency in front of goal. Only Mirco Antenucci has reached double figures for the Yorkshire club, who have scored 50 goals in 46 Championship games.

One player who does however has his eyes set on hitting his tenth goal of the season against The Millers this weekend is Alex Mowatt.

The midfielder is currently on nine goals from an outstanding individual campaign and told the Yorkshire Evening Post of his desire to make it 10 this weekend:

“That was my aim at the start of the season – to get to 10. I always thought of myself as a midfielder who scores but to look at my record last season, when I scored once, you might not think so. Goals aren’t everything but in my position I feel like I have to be scoring. I want to get one more before the season ends.”

Mowatt has been superb this term and without his excellent performances the campaign may have ended more grim than it has. Leeds will want to ensure they keep hold of the likes of Mowatt, Lewis Cook and Sam Byram in the summer if they are going to succeed in their chase for promotion next term.
