Leeds United winger Ezgjan Alioski has told The Yorkshire Post that he hopes to score more goals for the club.

Alioski made the comments after winning the Goal of the Month award for his strike against Nottingham Forest away from home at the City Ground on August 26.

The 25-year-old, who joined Leeds from Lugano in the summer transfer window, found the net in the 87th minute of the encounter with a stunning strike from 20 yards.

The goal was Leeds’s second in the match, as the West Yorkshire outfit picked up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 2-0 win.

Alioski has thanked his Leeds teammate for helping him score against Forest and has outlined his ambition to find the net more.

“I hope to score many more goals for Leeds, but this goal and this award is very special.”
