Tubbs hopes work will pay off

MATT Tubbs is putting in overtime to get back to his best.

Still without a goal since his August switch from Bournemouth, the striker is mustard keen to show the supporters the finishing power that marked him out as a feared marksmen during days at Crawley Town with Steve Evans.

He got a pat on the back from the manager for his movement and willingness at Brentord on Saturday, where he made his first start in seven weeks.

But it's goals upon which he will ultimately be judged and he needs one to get kick-started. Tubbs, who has been putting in the hours on the training ground, doesn't mind how it comes.

He told the Advertiser, ahead of tomorrow's NYS clash with Swindon: "Having no pre-season was frustrating for me. I'm trying to find my feet and get game time. I also do a bit extra after training and it all helps.

"Hopefully, I can get a chance that goes in off my knee and after that a few more will follow. The good thing is, the lads here will create chances for me, it's just about being in the right place at the right time."
