Nugent will get the goals? So says Lawrence
The way that he is going at present I would think that Dave Nugent would have trouble scoring even with one of Wayne Rooney's 'contacts', although this has not stopped him from being tipped to 'rediscover his goalscoring touch'...
Liam Lawrence, who 'feels' for Nugent, thinks that the 'willing runner' who is 'honest and runs all day' will soon start banging them in and is backing him to get into double figures!
So far with only 7 goals in 55 games, even if a lot of them have been as a 'wide attacker', this seems unlikely but Lawrence believes that if chances are continually fed to him that he will take them and is happy to see him working the keepers, as he did against Leicester.
Yep he is a willing runner and puts a good shift in but he also expends a lot of 'wasted energy' as I lose count of the number of times that his poor first touch, or miss-control, sees the ball get away from him with him then having to chase it.
We keep hoping that he will come good but sometimes you just get this feeling that something is not going to work out and it seems very much as though this will be the case with Dave Nugent and Portsmouth Football club?
I would still fully expect him to move on in some capacity in January, and if he does not then he almost certainly will at the end of the season when his contract expires...
What chance he pops up with a couple tomorrow night now I have said this?!
