Clarke-Harris sets goals

24 July 2013

No room for sentiment says striker


Newly-signed striker Jonson Clarke-Harris admits Latics' strikers will have to adopt a ruthless approach in the 2013/14 campaign.

The 19-year-old (pictured) is one of four, possibly five strikers, who will be vying for the two striking spots.

Clarke-Harris said: "It is hard to explain as a striker because you obviously want to battle for your place.

"But at the same time you also have a feeling of guilt for your mates.

"It is unfortunate but it is your job at the end of the day and you have to do the best you can."

Clarke-Harris is happy with whatever strike combination manager Lee Johnson fields.

He continued: "I play well with all the lads as we all train together.

"I don't know all their strengths yet and I am sure they don't know all mine.

"It is work in progress and as the season goes on we will get to know where players are going to put the ball and what runs to make so it ought to become easier.

"We are only four or five weeks in so you cannot expect too much from us."

Clarke-Harris is happy how he is settling at Boundary Park.

"Obviously I want to start, but at the moment it is all about getting minutes on the pitch, practicing and bonding with certain players," he explained.
