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.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
