League One outfit Sunderland acquired the services of 23-year-old striker Broadhead on loan until the end of the season from Premier League club Everton in the summer.
The Wales Under-21 international has started two EFL Cup matches for the Black Cats, but has been restricted to just 55 minutes of playing time in the league.
Broadhead, who scored in Sunderland’s 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic in the EFL Cup on Tuesday, feels his goalscoring performance will stand him in good stead to stake his claim in the team.
The Everton loan star pointed out that everyone in the team is playing well and stressed the need for him to continue doing his best and patiently wait for his opportunity.
Asked if his performance against Wigan Athletic was a good effort to stake his claim, Broadhead told SAFC TV: “Yes, definitely.”
“It is a team, so if I’m not playing or I’m coming off the bench, all I can do is try my best and try and help the team.
“All the lads are playing well at the moment in the league.
“So, I just have to wait for my opportunity.“
Broadhead also explained that he has settled in well at the Stadium of Light, with the players at the club making him feel at home.
“I think [I have settled in well] because all the lads are great with me“, Broadhead said.
“They are all positive, they are great.“
Having scored in Sunderland’s EFL Cup win over Wigan, Broadhead will be hopeful of earning his first League One start for the side soon.
