David Wotherspoon hoping he will add to his Hibs super strike
Goal hero wants to add more goals to his game after forcing his way in to the team.
Hibernian goal hero David Wotherspoon does not want his wonder strike against Inverness to be the end of his scoring exploits this season.
Wotherspoon hit a stunning half volley past Caley Thistle goalkeeper Ryan Esson on Saturday to give Hibs a 2-0 first half lead.
While the team was not able to cling on to secure another victory, the Scotland Under-21 international admits the screamer has given him a confidence boost after battling back into the team under Pat Fenlon.
Speaking to the Edinburgh Evening News, Wotherspoon said: “I’m usually pretty happy just to get on the scoresheet, never mind score a goal like that one.
“As soon as I hit it, I knew that it was a good one and I thought it was going in. It just sat up perfectly for me and when I chested it down the only thing on my mind was to have a shot.
“I was really pleased with it. I maybe haven’t scored as many goals as I would have liked lately.”
While the midfielder insists that goalscoring is not the only part of his game he wants to improve, he said that creating chances for strikers should go hand-in-hand with chipping in with goals himself.
After being left out of the squad for May’s Scottish Cup Final at Hampden, Wotherspoon admits it is good to be getting game time again at Easter Road.
He said: “We’ve only played seven games this season so I am hoping that I have got plenty times to add a few more this season.
“Obviously when you score it’s a confidence boost and, as a midfielder, you look to get on the scoresheet if you can, but your main objective is to make sure that you’re supplying the strikers in your team.”
