Crawley Town midfielder Bobson Bawling wants to build upon his two goals on Tuesday night during their 3-1 win in the Sussex Senior Cup against Whitehawk and force his way into the League 2 starting XI.
The former Watford youth has been used mainly from the bench during his two and a half years at the club since being signed in July 2014 by John Gregory.
Bawling, 21, said: “It’s always good to get goals in your game because it boosts your confidence as well as a player.
“I feel the performance especially in the first half was very good from our side.
“I thought our performance in the second half lacked a bit of quality, especially in front of goal.
“I had a chance which I missed from which I should have scored. But overall it was a good performance, we stuck to our gameplan.
“Obviously getting into the starting team is the aim. It’s good to get game-time, 90 minutes.
“I showed out there that when I get into good positions I can get goals as well.
“The harder I work, the luckier I get and I hope to get into the starting team very soon. I am just goinbg to keep working hard.
Bawling would not go as far as to predict Crawley could reach the play-off spots but believes they can use a good start to 2017 to go on a run.
He said: “We got off to a great start to the New Year and I feel the team is doing well in training and everything around is uplifting.
“I feel if we can continue the form we can get some good results and who knows where we will be at the end of the season.
“It’s too early to say we will reach the play-offs. I’m superstitious and would rather not say, because I don’t want to jinx it so we will have to see where we are, but we have enough quality to do so as well.”
