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
