McGoldrick sets goals target

22 September 2010 12:30
Nottingham Forest forward David McGoldrick has pledged to repay the faith shown in him by manager Billy Davies by firing 15 goals this season. The 22-year-old missed all of pre-season following shoulder surgery, but returned to action on Tuesday afternoon as the Reds reserve-team drew 1-1 with Rotherham at the City Ground. Davies has backed the Nottingham-born player to make a big impact this season after a disappointing debut campaign following his arrival from Southampton last summer. McGoldrick told the club's official website: "It was encouraging to hear his comments. It gives you a lift when you have a manager who believes in you like that. "My aim now is to score 15 goals this season, to repay the faith he has in me. I want to respond to the backing he has shown. "I do feel like I have a point to prove to Forest fans, but I believe I can score goals. You have to have belief in yourself, you have to back yourself."
