Paris hoping to find his feet

14 January 2014

After his fifth headed goal of the campaign, Paris Cowan-Hall is now aiming to hit the target with his feet, but insisted he doesn’t care how he finds the back of the net.

The 23-year-old's first-half goal against Morecambe has also inspired him to aim for double figures this season.

"I’m happy to score with anything – I’d score with my bum if I had to," he joked. "But now that I’ve scored five with my head, I could do with a couple with my feet.
"I had a few chances with my left on Saturday where I could have scored but they’ve been headed away or cleared off the line.

"Double figures would be nice – 10 is a nice round number to aim for." 

Cowan-Hall revealed that although he felt it was three points missed rather than one point gained on Saturday, he was pleased with how the team performed on a difficult surface.

"I’m disappointed that we didn’t get three points because for a large period of the game we were on top,” he said. “I had a couple of chances to double what I’d already scored so it’s more of a disappointment than anything.

"The gaffer has said to us already that he wants us to be a bit uglier and grind out results when we need to.

"The pitch wasn’t ideal but both teams had to play on it so we played the way we needed to play.

"I had to adapt to the pitch – it’s hard because sometimes I can’t just knock it and run, or take people on as I’d like to, but it’s the same for everyone.

"I was doing alright down the right, although I couldn’t run with it the way I normally do but we had a game plan and we executed it. I thought the whole team did well.

"It was encouraging because it shows that we were willing to work for each other and the gaffer." 

Cowan-Hall is already looking ahead to this weekend’s showdown with Oxford United as the Chairboys seek victory at Adams Park.

"The point is a good foundation for next week,” he said. “The minimum the gaffer can ask for is hard work; everyone has good days and bad days.
"But Oxford is a big game for us. We definitely need to kick-start our home form too."
