Jason Scotland Found Life Tough At Wigan

Former Wigan Athletic striker Jason Scotland has been speaking about his time at the DW Stadium and how his lack of goals made him feel he wasn`t 'doing his job`.

Scotland`s former club Swansea take on his new side, Ipswich this weekend and the Trinidad and Tobago international has been reflecting on his career and he says he wish he`d stayed in South Wales where he was happy but at the time he found the lure of a move to the Premier League too big to turn down.

The burly striker said about his move to the North West: 'I had to take the chance but I do regret leaving'

Scotland couldn`t be criticised for effort during his time with the Latics but he had some terrible luck in front of goal and finished the season with just a solitary Premier League goal, scored at Craven Cottage in a 2-1 defeat to Fulham last April.

Speaking about his time at the Latics Scotland said: 'It was tough for me, I just didn`t score enough. It was getting me down and after games Id go home and just be thinking that I hadn`t scored.`

'The gaffer didn`t put any pressure on me; he`d tell me he hadn`t lost any faith in me and Graeme Jones was brilliant, they`d just keep telling me to do the right things.

'But I would just think about not scoring all the time and I was putting pressure on myself which didn`t help.

'Even if I was playing well, as a striker it`s all about finding the net and when you`re not doing that you`re really not doing your job.'

The 31 year old has gone on to score 5 goals in 15 appearances for the Tractor Boys so far this season, Ipswich Town v Swansea City will be screened live on Sky Sports this Saturday (4/12/10) at 12:45pm
