Leyton Orient striker Scott Kashket is hoping Saturday’s late stoppage-time strike is the first of many senior goals for the O’s.
The 19-year-old came off the bench to score a late equaliser at the weekend against the U’s, and was delighted to score to get up and running with such an important goal.
“It was good to get my first goal, and especially one that meant something with us getting the draw and a valuable point,” Kashket told leytonorient.com. “It’s my first goal and hopefully that is the first of many.”
The youngster has had to bide his time for his chances, regularly featuring off the bench in the latter stages of matches, and he believes he is learning all the time as the O’s head to Luton Town tonight
“I have to be patient at the moment and the most important thing is how the team are doing. I have just got to wait for my time and make sure I take it.
“It’s good to be in the first team environment, training all the time. There are not that many similar players to me at the club, but when I watch Jay and the other strikers you do pick things up and take little bits out of their games and try to add to your own game.
“I feel I have done okay so far, but the more you get to play, the more you get to understand the game.”
