DRFC Sharp - I feel like I can score in every game

Doncaster Rovers striker Billy Sharp feels he is almost back to full fitness and will score in every game at the moment.

The on form striker netted his eighth and ninth goals of the season in the 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Sharp missed seven weeks of the season after suffering an ankle ligament injury on the opening day at Brighton and Hove Albion.

The striker failed to score in his first four appearances following his return but he has now hit eight goals in his last ten appearances.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Post, Sharp said, "I feel as though I am going to score in every game at the minute and I am nearly 100 per cent in terms of fitness although I struggled in the last 10 minutes."

Sharp says the recent upturn in form, which has seen Rovers beat Southampton and Leicester so far this month, takes Rovers into the busy festive period with the momentum to move away from the relegation zone.

"We have just had three very tough games and have won two. I feel we should have won all three but beforehand we would have taken the two. We go to Burnley with the momentum and in a positive mood," he continued.

His form will also have alerted a number of clubs who will be interested in signing the striker in the January transfer window.

The clubs record signing has eighteen months remaining on his current contract but he has a gentlemen`s agreement with the club, which will allow him to talk with clubs who offer 3 million.

The 26 year old is hoping for a move to the Premier League but seems happy to stay at Rovers in the meantime.

Sharp turned down a move to Southampton after the south coast club offered 3.2 million for him in the summer.

He's the inform striker in the championship at the moment. I wil be gutted if he leaves in January. A club like us just cannot replace a striker who has scored like he as for us in the championship.
