Hungry Adebayo hunting goals and points

23 January 2018

Young striker Elijah Adebayo is determined to hit the goal trail for the Robins – after revealing the bittersweet emotions of grabbing his first Football League goal.

Adebayo, 20, scored his first goal for Cheltenham in a pulsating Sky Bet League Two clash with Mansfield Town at the One Call Stadium.

However, his late strike was cancelled out as the Stags came back to win a controversial encounter that left the Fulham loan man with mixed feelings.

β€œThe Mansfield game was bittersweet for me,” he said. β€œIt was nice to score a goal, but it would have been even better if that was the winner or we got more for three points.

β€œI just want to kick on, take every game on its merits and push myself for Cheltenham. I always want to be scoring goals.

β€œThis is my first Football League loan and it is a massive learning curve for me,” he added.

β€œIt’s mentally and physically a step up for me and these next four or five months will be really good for me. I will be tested every week.”

Adebayo will now hope to be involved as the Robins face Barnet this weekend at the LCI Rail Stadium – and believes if the team can produce a similar performance as last weekend the right result will come.

β€œIt’s a big period for us,” he said. β€œOn Saturday we showed that even with nine men we can cope with anything. I felt the boys were fantastic, from the start to the end. We never stopped working for each other.

β€œThese next few games, if we show the same spirit and desire then I am sure the results will take care of themselves. We need these points and have got to battle for every single one.”
