BRADFORD (Park Avenue) forward Oli Johnson believes reaching double digits in goals is more than achievable for himself this season.

Despite OJ's strike in Avenue's 3-1 defeat at Kettering Town only serving as consolation, it meant he got off the mark.

Scoring goals over the last 12 months or so has been one of Bradford's major problems, netting a mere 25 times in 33 games in their 2019/20 Vanarama National League North campaign.

Johnson, who bagged a poor three goals in 20 appearances last term, thinks he can add more to this much-improved squad.

He added: "I am starting to find my feet, fitness wise. I had a few niggles early on.

"Whether I play either out wide or up top, I feel like I can contribute with a few goals. Double figures would be nice.

"We are in a lot better shape than we were last year. I think we have got quality in the squad.

"We have experience in this league and I think that will tell as the games go on.

"We might need to add a bit to the squad. Maybe a bit of size because we are not the biggest of teams."

Park Avenue travel to Edgar Street tonight desperate to get going against a team who are unbeaten in their opening couple of league fixtures.

Although the visitors are pointless after their first two, Johnson feels morale in camp is still high.

He added: "We want to get those points on the board, sooner rather than later.

"We don’t want to end up at the bottom seeing other teams pull away from us at an early stage.

"We went there last year, did well, and arguably could have won the game.

"We go there confident, the spirit is still in the dressing room, we know where we are just falling short at the minute.

"Whatever has gone on so far this season we will put it behind us, go to Hereford and expect to get a result."

An early Ben Stephens screamer and a Josh Scott brace condemned Mark Bower's men before the break at Kettering.

After almost three weeks without a game, Johnson was glad to resume playing but felt his team could have done better.

He said: "It was good to get back out but not the ideal result.

"We knew they were going to be direct and put it on us early. We had a plan to counter that but we didn’t really execute it.

"That first goal was a bit of a freak one. Then we conceded another two where we have to defend our box better.

"The lad who scored the two headers has just won the battles with whoever was marking him. I think a little bit of luck went against us.

"We responded well second half, got that early goal, and it was a shame we didn’t build on it, press on and get another one."
