Nardiello eyes goal for Stanno

19 August 2010 05:00
Exeter striker Daniel Nardiello is determined to pay tribute to Adam Stansfield by opening his goalscoring account in Saturday's home match against Bristol Rovers. Stansfield lost his battle with bowel cancer last week and Nardiello hopes to honour his former team-mate with a performance the striker would have been proud of. "Adam would want us to go out there and get three points," the 28-year-old forward told the Exeter Express and Echo. "All the lads are going into the game committed and hopefully we can dedicate a win to him. We all know it is going to be an emotional day and we have to focus on the game. "I have done okay in the first two games and have been unlucky not to score. "I am more than confident that the goals will come sooner rather than later. It would mean everything to me to score my first goal at St James's Park on Saturday and get myself off the mark."
