Dapo Afolayan eyes scoring streak in League One 12926498

Dapo Afolayan reckons he can help himself to goals in a Wanderers side that continues to score at will.

Ian Evatt’s team has hit the back of the net more times than anyone else in League One after four games and preserved an unbeaten start with an impressive victory against Oxford United on Saturday.

Afolayan brought his side level just before half time with a fine finish from the edge of the box, Eoin Doyle supplying the winner with a 63rd minute header from Josh Sheehan’s corner.

And as the goals continue to flow for Wanderers, winger Afolayan is confident he can continue to profit.

“I know I have it in my locker and I’m glad I finally showed it and one went in,” he said of his spectacular strike. “It was a good goal, I enjoyed it. Hopefully I’ll get a few more.

“I don’t have targets, it’s just as many as I can get. Keep getting in the right areas and the goals will come.

“It is a contrast to last year. It is something I obviously needed to do. I need to help the team out more.

“We have scored the most goals in the league so far this season and I think with the players we have, we should all be scoring. It’s enjoyable and I am happy to help.”

Wanderers have not only scored more goals than anyone else in League One, they have also created more goalscoring opportunities.

Afolayan, who has now scored three times in his last five games for Bolton, admits he is enjoying himself at the moment.

“It’s really good playing in this team because there is so much quality in the high areas of the pitch,” he said. “It is quite easy at the minute. We work for each other, do the harder stuff, then go and express ourselves at the other end of the pitch. “We are seeing it week in, week out, with the quality of chances we are creating.”

More than 15,000 supporters were at the UniBol on Saturday to watch another entertaining game, and a sell-out 4,700 will be in the away end at Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night at Bolton return to Carabao Cup action.

Afolayan reckons the remarkable numbers are helping to bring the best out of Wanderers.

“It is always nice to have that sort of support because it does drive you on and it is something we missed last year,” he said.

“I know the fans missed being here too, so it is great to see them in big numbers. They are loud.”
