Aberdeen forward James Wilson hopes the best is yet to come after his stunning strike against Hamilton Accies.
The on-loan Manchester United forward netted his second goal for the club in Wednesday’s comfortable 3-0 win at Pittodrie.
Injury has limited the 22-year-old to seven appearances for the Dons so far this term but, with a Betfred Cup final against Celtic to look forward to next month, the forward hopes to add to his tally in Sunday’s trip to Kilmarnock.
He said: “The one against Hamilton was one of my better goals. I found myself in a bit of space and felt good with my shooting in the warm-up so I thought I’d have a go and thankfully it went in the top corner.
“I’d have liked more minutes but with the injuries I’ve had, I’m happy with my progression and looking to go forward from this.
“I’ve been working hard in training to get my fitness up. The games coming up will be a good test for me and I’m hoping I can stay as fit as possible.
“We’re all looking forward to the final. We’ll get a good week’s work in during the international break and go at Celtic at Hampden. It’ll be a great experience for everyone involved and it’ll be something new for me. I’ll take it in my stride and hopefully we will get the win.
“Back-to-back wins was great for us. We stayed professional against Hamilton and put in a good team performance to get the three points we needed. We’ve got a lot of capability on the pitch to score goals. The lads at the back have been brilliant to keep clean sheets and we’ve just got to do our job now.
“I’m confident in myself and I’d like to think I can kick on to get as many goals as possible. The games are coming thick and fast at the moment. We’ve just got to recover right, get your rest in and go again.”
Dons manager Derek McInnes was also pleased to see Wilson on target against Hamilton after an injury-disrupted start to his time at Pittodrie.
He said: “He scores those types of goals in training.
“He has that quality to back himself, especially on his left side.
“The fact he took the shot on shows he’s confident enough to do it.
“He’s here for a reason – we don’t get them at the top of their game but trying to re-build that confidence and get some flow into his game, a consistent run without injuries.
“It’s similar to Gary Mackay-Steven doing his flicks and tricks in games – it shows they’re in a good place confidence-wise.
“There’s not too many on the pitch could’ve scored that goal last night.
“James has not had problems to seek since he’s been here, it’s been stop-start but two goals in his last couple of games at Pittodrie will do him no harm.”
