Holloway Relishing Striker Competition

19 July 2017

Striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway was happy to get on the scoresheet yesterday and is excited to continue building a strike partnership with Craig Davies.

The former Fleetwood Town man netted in the opening minute of the second half to put Latics ahead, however Curzon Ashton equalised on 62 minutes through Daniel Shaw.

Speaking after the game, Holloway said: "It was a good game and a good run out.

"It was good to get a goal but I think we should be scoring a few more goals against teams a few leagues below us but the shift was all that mattered to the gaffer.

"They played five at the back so it was a bit of a struggle with three big centre halves next to you, it was a bit of a fight, a bit of a tussle but it was a good game and I enjoyed it."

The striker is looking to build an attacking relationship with new signing Craig Davies.

"He’s a runner, he likes to run a lot so I need to play off him, we’re going to learn how to play with each other and help each other score some goals this season," he commented.

There are five players competing for a starting role in attack but the striker thrives on competition.

"It’s good to have competition for your places, I think last season I always thought ’probably I’m going to play next week’ but now we’ve got some more strikers in, I’m on my toes a bit more and I know I have to perform to stay in the team," he said.
