Platt: I`ll Be Worth Weight In Goals
Colchester United`s record signing Clive Platt has pledged to stamp his mark on the Championship next term as he bids to justify the reported £300,000 outlay splashed by manager Geraint Williams.
The former MK Dons man has however pleaded in tonight`s Colchester Evening Gazette for the fans to have patience as he adapts at a higher level and also asked that he is not compared to the now departed Chris Iwleumo.
Platt told the Colchester Evening Gazette "I'm playing at a higher level but the goals don't move.
"Last year was the best I've had in front of goal and I've learned a lot from that," added the 6-foot man, who chalked up 18 goals.
Of Iwelumo and Jamie Cureton, who netted a combined 41 league goals last season, Platt was praiseworthy, but insisted he will not try to emulate them.
"They scored a lot of goals last season and they did brilliantly - but they're both different to me. I just want to score as many goals as possible and do the best I possibly can."
