Cherries: Hollands looking for a perfect 10

05 November 2009 07:00
CHERRIES captain Danny Hollands believes he must propel his goals tally into double figures if his season is to be considered a personal success.

The 23-year-old, who netted three goals last month, sets himself high standards and won't be happy until he hits a 10-goal target from midfield.

I've got to try to get into double figures so I can say to myself I've had a good season, said the former Chelsea reserve team skipper.

I had seven last year which wasn't far off, but hopefully this year I can try to get to that 10 mark and, as a group of lads, hopefully we can achieve something.

I think last season I was second top goalscorer, but this season Brett (Pitman) is running away with it.

You have your strikers to be the top goalscorers but everyone in the team has got to try to chip in.

I class myself as a box-to-box midfielder and I try to grab as many goals as I can.

Since Howe took charge, Hollands only trails Pitman in the goalscoring stakes, despite being called upon to do his share of the defensive duties.

In some ways me and Anton Robinson are told to sit and let the two wingers do their stuff, said the central midfielder.

We've got Liam Feeney who's very attack-minded, but if I can break forward, the gaffer says do so, and I was lucky to get three goals last month.
