Max Watters says he hopes to keep making a positive impact after netting in each of his last two appearances.
The striker found the net in last week’s Papa John’s Trophy tie with Aston Villa Under-21s and followed that up by scoring his second goal in as many games after coming off the bench in MK Dons’ 4-1 thrashing of Crewe Alexandra.
It takes Watters’ goal record for the season to three in nine appearances – a decent return for the 22-year-old after an injury-affected start to life at Stadium MK.
“It was unfortunate to get the injury against Tottenham and be out for a few weeks,” he told iFollow MK Dons after the win at Crewe.
“It wasn't a great start but I'm nearly back to full fitness now - I just need to get on the pitch and get as many minutes as I can
“The way we play football, there are always going to be chances for me. I just need to put them away and give the Gaffer something to think about.”
Watters’ goal against Crewe - a fierce low strike through the goalkeeper’s legs - put the icing on the cake of what was a terrific away result for the Dons. While, of course, pleased to find the net, the Cardiff City man was just delighted to see the team get back to winning ways.
“It's a great feeling to score but it's all about winning,” he said. “I'm a team player and I want to do what I can do to help the team win.
“Today is a good result away from him which will give us a lot of confidence heading into next Saturday.”
