Elmander unfazed by goal drought

25 March 2009 08:05
The Sweden front-man is currently away on international duty as he bids to get back on the goal trail for club and country, having not registered since December 13. Elmander has experienced a mixed first season in the Premier League having joined Bolton in the summer from Toulouse for a club record £8.2million fee. To date, Elmander has scored just five times for his new club in an injury interrupted campaign, but he remains confident he will soon show his true worth. "I feel in good shape. It went well in the last game. You'll never be 100 per cent as a footballer, but it feels good," Elmander told Fotbollskanalen. "I feel no pressure. I feel no pressure from the club but if you are striker and play in England, then you have to score, that's the way it is." Asked if he felt under pressure to break his barren run he said: "No, it's something for the media to write about. "I've been there before. Then all of a sudden you are hailed again. I am not the typical striker that scores in every game even though I have reached a higher level and become better at it. "Now I am playing in a better league, and maybe we are not playing that kind of game that gives me all the chances, so I am working more for the team."
