John Robertson is determined to make an impact during his loan spell with Cove Rangers.
The teenager, who joined on loan from St Johnstone early in the season, has found game-time hard to come by at the Balmoral Stadium.
Just two of his 14 appearances for the club have come from the start but he appreciates the quality of player he has had in front of him.
The St Johnstone youth product did come off the bench to score the winner against Stenhousemuir and was a threat in the 3-0 defeat to Elgin City on Saturday.
With crucial games to come if Cove are to emerge as League 2 winners, Robertson will have the opportunity to play his part.
He said: “It’s been very good, I’ve loved every minute of it. It’s obviously not the best – and hard – when you’re not starting but you just need to come on and do what you can do.
“We’ve got (Mitch) Megginson, (Rory) McAllister, we did have Jimmy (Scott), who are all really good players. You just have to wait.
“I’m still young. I want to make an impact here. Hopefully I can finish as a title-winner but we can’t get too far ahead of ourselves.”
He was, however, at a loss to explain the dip in form at Borough Briggs, which saw Cove concede at the start of each half in their fourth league defeat of the campaign.
Robertson said: “We’ve got to focus on next week against Edinburgh City and get back to winning ways. It was a bit of everything against Elgin: the pitch wasn’t good and we just weren’t on it on the day.
“We’re dominant at home. It wasn’t good missing Meggy (Mitch Megginson) – that put a bit of a dampener on the team. But I couldn’t tell you what the problem was.”
