Shrewsbury's Aaron Amadi-Holloway desperate to progress further
Aaron Amadi-Holloway may have found some form at Shrewsbury Town, but he is still a long way from where he wants to be.
The striker has scored twice in his last three starts and is expected to return to the starting line-up when Town take on Burton Albion in League One tomorrow (3pm).
But after waiting 17 appearances to get off the mark, Amadi-Holloway’s form isn’t reason for cheer – just another reason to work harder.
“I wouldn’t say I’ve progressed a lot to where I want to be,” said the summer signing from Oldham.
“Last year, I thought I’d be doing a lot better than I am right now.
“I was like ‘Next season I’m going to smash it and start really well’.
“It really hasn’t happened, but there’s still time.”
He added: “I’ve still got a bit to go, definitely.
“My stats now from last year are still way off but I’m getting there.”
And the 25-year-old former Wycombe and Fleetwood man is taking heart from the goalscoring exploits of team-mate and eight-goal top scorer Fejiri Okenabirhie, who waited patiently for a run of games before going on a scoring streak.
Amadi-Holloway said: “The consistency is very important – especially for goalkeepers and strikers it can be a little bit more important.
“If you get a flow in your game, like with Fey scoring the goals, you’re just going to continue to do it because there’s that form and run of games that strikers just need.”
