Trev: I'm Going For Goals

Trevor Sinclair is aiming to continue his goalscoring streak at Elland Road - and kick 2002 off in style.

With two goals in two games opening his account for the season, he looks well on course to match Glenn Roeder's target for him of half a dozen or so goals.

But he insists:

"I'm aiming higher than that but if I get that, fair enough.

"It's two in two and I'm hoping to keep it going as well; I had a bit of a barren patch after coming back from being injured last season and not scoring, so I'm delighted to get a couple."

Of his strike against Liverpool, he says:

"Jermain is going down across the box and I took a gamble because he had a couple of players behind him; I thought if he is struggling to get a shot in I can be there to support him.

"I caught it nicely and it just went in the bottom corner."

He is playing with a smile on his face that belies his decision to ask for a transfer earlier in the season, and he says:

"I'm enjoying it; I had a bit of an indifferent game against Derby but the lads played well, fortunately, and got me through it really - and I obviously got the goal."

That spectacular volley against the Rams was nearly equalled by another attempt - a full blown bicycle kick this time - against Liverpool, and Trevor says:

"I tried it again because the ball just stuck to me nicely, but the keeper's pulled off a good save - I'll keep on trying, though."

As for the trip to Leeds, he says:

"We'll probably have our work cut out and it will be a tough game, especially on their patch; we need to be solid and nick a goal on the break."

But he says it is too early to be thinking about Europe, adding:

"It's a dream at the moment because we are way outside that, but if we keep on picking the points up we have got a chance."

"We have to do well against the teams around us now as well, and I'm sure we'll be climbing up the league."
