Odelusi keen to make up for lost time

8 February 2018

Striker Sanmi Odelusi admits he is eager to make up for lost time as he continues his comeback from injury.

The hitman scored on his debut against Colchester United after signing on a deal until the end of the season.

However, the 24-year-old suffered a hamstring injury after that Sky Bet League Two clash and was forced to sit out until a substitute appearance against Grimsby Town last weekend.

The Dagenham-born forward continued his road to full match sharpness with an impressive 45-minute appearance for the reserves in midweek against Plymouth Argyle.

And now – with Port Vale arriving at the LCI Rail Stadium this weekend – he is ready to step it up again to help the Robins towards crucial league points.

“Every game now until the end of the season is important,” said Odelusi.

“We aim to do our best, the aim is to get three points. The boys have been working hard in training and taking everything onboard that the gaffer wants.

“It’s all about giving 100 percent. I want to help the team, it’s not about individuals but the team. I will always put in 100 percent for the team.

“The gaffer has spoken to me one-on-one about where he sees me fitting into the team and I agree with him.

“The boys are all talented, are good at what they do. If we put it together it will produce good results.

“The injury is getting better, it feels good and I managed to get through 45-minutes for the reserves in midweek which helps,” he added.

”After my first game I felt it slightly in training when I pushed off. Sprinting is a big part of my game so it was better for me to go to one side and rehab.”
