STAR striker Jason Scotland has admitted Swansea City’s winless streak has taken the shine off his recent goal rush.
Scotland, last season’s top scorer with 29 goals, has been getting back to his prolific best in recent weeks.

And, after another stunning strike in the 1-1 draw at Blackpool, he now has four goals in the Swans’ last three games.

But, while the striker’s form has been improving with every game, Swansea have stuttered to six successive draws.

Despite dominating their opponents, Roberto Martinez’s men have been unable to secure all three points.

It’s a situation that has left many at the club, Scotland included, frustrated.

And, as happy as he is to see his name on the scoresheet, the skilful frontman insisted he would always prefer three points.

“I’m happy to be getting goals, but it takes the shine off it when we don’t win,” he said.

“I’d rather I didn’t score and we won because then we would start climbing the table and be up where we want to be.

“Obviously I’m delighted with the goal against Blackpool. But I’m not happy with the result because six draws on the trot is not looking good for us.

“We always play the better football, but we don’t always get three points. That was the case on Saturday and we were disappointed to come home with just a point.”

Scotland and Swansea’s quest to end their winless streak will continue at home to Coventry on Boxing Day.

And the Trinidad and Tobago international is naturally hoping he can play his part in helping the Swans get back to winning ways.

If he does score, Scotland will move into double figures for the season.

And, while happy his current tally of nine goals is enough to put him joint eighth in the race for the Championship’s golden boot, the 29-year-old claims he still has a way to go before he hits his target for the current campaign.

“It’s a good tally at the moment, but I’m looking for more,” he said.

“I’m not going to tell people my target yet, maybe after Christmas.

“I just want to get my head down and try to get as many goals as possible for the team.

“That’s my priority over the next month.”
