David Amoo predicts there is far more to come from him after a slightly delayed start to his Preston North End career.
The summer signing from Liverpool made his North End debut in Saturdayâ€™s 2-0 defeat to Morecambe.
And he followed that up by scoring the equaliser in PNEâ€™s 1-1 draw at Bamber Bridge last night.
A minor groin strain had ruled him out of the opening two friendlies at Southport and Chorley.
He was going to be eased back into action after being named as a substitute against the Shrimps.
But Lee Trundleâ€™s early exit from the forward line with a knee injury saw Amoo summoned into action by the 17th minute.
And the 21-year-old got an extended run-out, lasting until the closing stages.
Amoo told the Evening Post: â€œI got a bit of a niggle in training and sat out the first two games as a bit of precaution.
â€œAt Morecambe I think the plan was to play in the second half.
â€œWhen Lee got injured, I was straight on.
â€œWhen the gaffer signalled to me, I thought he was going to say that Iâ€™d be coming on in the second half and to have a stretch ready for that.
â€œBut I was straight on to the pitch and into the attack.
â€œIt was great to play because Iâ€™d been disappointed not to have been able to make my debut in the first two games.
â€œAny player will tell you that they just want to be out there on the pitch, getting a feel for the game again after the summer.
â€œI admit it was disappointing that we lost the game and we didnâ€™t play that well.
â€œBut Iâ€™m sure the performances will get better as pre-season goes on.
â€œWeâ€™re still learning about each otherâ€™s games and how we like to play.
â€œThere are so many new lads here that it will take a little bit of time to adapt.
â€œOff the pitch, we are gelling really well as mates, but on the pitch you need to play a few times before you click.
â€œThere are some great characters here, some really big leaders, and Iâ€™m enjoying being among them.â€
Amoo opted for Preston after being freed by Liverpool at the end of last season.
He knows League One well after loan spells at MK Dons and Bury â€“ the pacey winger scored the Shakersâ€™ winner against North End at Gigg Lane last November.
South Londoner Amoo said: â€œComing to Preston was an attractive move.
â€œThis is a big club with a rich history, and it is trying to build to get out of this division.
â€œI played for Bury twice against Preston last season.
â€œTheir away support at Gigg Lane was superb, and playing at Deepdale a few months later was amazing.
â€œItâ€™s a great ground and the atmosphere was good.
â€œWhile I really enjoyed my time at Liverpool, it was time to get out and knuckle down somewhere else.
â€œI want to try and cement a regular first-team place, and hopefully I can do it here.
â€œAt Liverpool I got a brief taste of first-team football, but I wasnâ€™t really close to making the big push.
â€œSometimes in your career you have to branch out and try somewhere else.
â€œThis is an exciting challenge,â€ he added.
