Marc Newsham believes he can still have a big say in Boston United’s fortunes this season.

The striker slipped down the Pilgrims’ pecking order after missing the first half of the season due to an ongoing knee injury.

But now he is rehabilitated and eager to add to his 107 United goals and his six starts this season.

“We’ve got some tough games coming up and I’m sure there’ll be a be a bit of squad of rotation,” Newsham told The Standard.

“If and when I get a chance I’d like to take it and score a few goals.

“I feel alright, the injury feels a lot better. I’m still a bit sore after games but I’m going to get that.

“I’m training regularly and trying to contribute when I come on in games.”

After being Boston’s leading scorer for three of the past five seasons, Newsham admits that he does find it hard to watch Dayle Southwell and Mark Jones leading the line, but the forward has been in the game long enough to know you don’t always get things your own way.

“The form of Dayle and Jona is keeping me out at the minute,” he added. “That’s football, they’ve been doing well and I’m there when called upon.

“Hopefully, I can contribute before the end of the season.

“It is (hard to take). You want to play. “I’m not going to lie, obviously you want to play.

“But with the injuries I’ve been out for half the season.

“You can’t really complain, but I’m sure it’ll be a squad game before the end of the season.”
