New man Alex Jakubiak says he is enjoying life at Fleetwood Town and can’t wait until he makes his first team debut
The Watford loanee was brought in by Uwe Rosler in August to widen the options up front, but the forward is yet to see any first team action.
Jakubiak did feature on Tuesday in the Development Squad game against Wigan, scoring once in their 2-0 win, but is now hoping this can lead to making his first team bow.
“I’ve enjoyed my time here so far, but I’ve been a bit frustrated I haven’t played yet,” said Jakubiak.
“I’ve proven in the past few years I can score goals so hopefully I can get the chance to show the Fleetwood fans what I can do.
“The lads and manager have both welcomed me and I’ve really enjoyed training. The facilities here are great and for a League One club to gave a training ground like this is amazing.”
With his midweek goal fresh in his mind, Jakubiak has set his sights on making an impact on his team-mates and put last Saturday’s loss at Rochdale behind them.
“From the bench, it’s disappointing to watch us lose, but we were able to pinpoint what went wrong and what we need to improve on.
“We came in on Sunday and watched the game back, and we worked on problems that we had.”
It’s the competition for places up front that could be what keeps the 20-year-old out of Uwe Rosler’s starting XI, but it’s a challenge Jakubiak says he relishes.
“They’ve all performed well already (the strikers) and all got on the scoresheet, so it’s going to be tough, but I know what I can do so I hope I can get involved and get my goals.”
Despite the recent poor form of MK Dons, Jakubiak says it’s important not to look too much into their opponents’ recent results.
“We might look into a bit of video footage to see how they play but that’s about it. We don’t focus on their league position, and we’ll only play our game, especially being at home.
“We only look at ourselves and don’t want to look into them too much.”
Football League player, should he appear on Saturday.thThe on-loan man also says he’s looking forward to potentially being the Cod Army’s 100
“It would be a huge honour. The club have come up into the Football League in the past 5 years, and they’ve had players like Jamie Vardy, so to be in the history books alongside someone like him would be special.”
