Middlesbrough assistant manager Kevin Blackwell expects Chuba Akpom to score on a regular basis for the club after the striker impressed on his debut against Queens Park Rangers.
Akpom scored Boro’s goal in the 1-1 draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday.
He put the visitors ahead in the 19th minute before Bright Osayi-Samuel equalised for the home team.
“What’s the perfect start for a striker? It’s getting a goal on your debut and he’s done exactly that,” Blackwell told Teesside Live.
“It’s important as a striker you’re seen to do your job and that is scoring goals.
“That has taken a lot of weight off his shoulders, psychologically whether he thinks about it or not.”
Akpom moved to Middlesbrough from Greek Super League club PAOK last week.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
