CHE Adams wants to put his tough start to life at Saints behind him and hopes to embark on a scoring run before the season’s over.

The striker ended his goal drought in spectacular fashion against Manchester City on Sunday night, lobbing Ederson from 35 yards out.

And now the 23-year-old hopes he can add to his tally before the season comes to an end at home to Sheffield United on July 26.

The former Birmingham ace said: “I’m beyond buzzing, especially as we got three points as well because that was the main thing.

“To get on the scoresheet is a nice feeling and hopefully it’s the first of many.

“I know I can score goals, but it was about getting the chance to. Everyone’s faith in me has paid off and I hope I can keep repaying it.

“There are only five games remaining, and I want to help us get as many points as possible.”

Adams was linked with a move to Leeds in January, but Ralph Hasenhuttl made it clear that he didn’t want his £15million man to leave.

The striker has built up a brilliant relationship with his teammates, who were all desperate for him to break his goal duck.

This was evident during the Watford win in June when all the players leapt out of their seats to celebrate what they thought was an Adams goal, only for his effort to drift narrowly wide.

Asked whether Hasenhuttl’s insistence to keep him in January has paid off, Adams replied: “Yeah.

“There is a lot of competition in the forward areas and to score means a lot to me. Hopefully we can keep going now.

“I want to grow in confidence and get as many points and minutes as I can.”

Adams is now turning his attention to helping Saints achieve a third win on the bounce.

Hasenhuttl’s side will visit Everton’s Goodison Park on Thursday full of confidence following victories against Watford and Man City.

And Adams admits the club are gunning to make it a trio of wins, adding: “That’s the aim.

“We want to pick up three points in every game and we managed to do that against Man City.

“We want to carry this on into the game with Everton on Thursday.”
