Goals on the way for Leo
Leo Ulloa has predicted he will not have to wait much longer to be part of a Championship goal rush for Albion.
The Argentinian target man spearheads the attack at leaders Cardiff tonight in search of his first league goal.
Gus Poyet’s £2 million January signing made a dream start by scoring on his debut against Arsenal in the FA Cup at The Amex but has drawn a blank in three Championship outings following his move from Spanish club Almeria.
Ulloa said: “He (Poyet) doesn’t tell me but I know I am here to score goals so I want to start scoring as quickly as I can.
“I am calm. I am not too worried, because of the way the team is playing. In the first 20 minutes against Blackburn Rovers we created a lot of chances so I know the goals are coming. I cannot lose confidence now, because that would be bad for me and the team.”
Top scorer Craig Mackail-Smith is pushing for a return to the starting line-up after he was dropped to the bench for the 1-1 home draw with Rovers last week.
Ulloa said: “He has different skills to me. We play in the same position but we are not the same kind of players. I think we have a very good relationship. Now it is Gus’s decision to play with me, him or us together.”
