Bowen admits he’s not been happy

By Hughie Southon

Jarrod Bowen has admitted his disappointment  his form but was thrilled to be back on the goals case at the weekend.

Like the rest of the squad he hasn’t been at his best this season and is as critical of himself as some fans choose to be.

In real terms Bowen has been a remarkable signing at just over £20 million and his drop in form is therefore all the more noticeable.

But despite being disappointed with the way things have gone this term he has pledged to keep on keeping on in the series of tough games we are facing.

The victory over Everton will have done much for his and the squad’s confidence as we head into the next game  against Derby County in the FA Cup fourth round.

After that it will be back to the Premier League and the likes of Chelsea and Spurs among the opposition sides we meet.

Commenting on his own form he said: “Sometimes when it’s not falling for you, it’s not falling for you, but you keep making the runs because you might get one out of ten times.

The first goal is an example of that, you make the run hoping for a flick on and the ball drops and then even the second one as well [I kept running and got on the end of Michail Antonio’s deflected cross].

I’ve not been happy, obviously, with my goals and assists output. But you know I never hide, I never slump, and I always give 100 per cent to try and score goals for this club. To get two, I am buzzing!”
