Iwelumo out to make an impression

10 August 2010 09:31

Chris Iwelumo is looking for his first chance to impress Scotland boss Craig Levein against Sweden on Wednesday night.

The big striker was an unused substitute in Levein's first game in charge of the national side, the 1-0 friendly win over the Czech Republic at Hampden in March, but a raft of withdrawals ahead of the Stockholm friendly mean the Burnley strike could feature at some point in what is the last game before the Euro 2012 qualification campaign begins next month.

"I'm a confident, positive person and at the minute I'm in form," said Iwelumo, who scored the winning goal on his Clarets debut against Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

"I have scored one goal in one, you can't ask any more than that and I've had a good five or six games in pre-season.

"Let's hope I can take it into Wednesday and if I get some chances then I will put them away.

"The gaffer wants to have a look at a few different partnerships and hopefully I will get a few minutes."
