Leeds United striker Matt Smith has expressed his satisfaction at being able to score goals for his team, and added that he will try to maintain the same dedication and "work ethic" to progress in the future.

The striker has managed to score 12 goals in his debut season for the Peacocks, but is hungry for more next term.

“I’m happy from a personal point of view”, the former Oldham Athletic player told his club's official site, reflecting upon his debut campaign.

The 24-year-old divides his team's season into two halves, with the first half being terrific for the side but the second half not being so successful.


“It has been a season of two halves. It was a terrific first half of the season for us."

Smith adds that his aim, as he goes out on the field, is to try and do his best for the team. He also vows to work hard to improve in all the aspects of the game, which he feels will help him stand in "good stead for the future."

“Whenever I go out there I always try and do my best for the team.

"This was my first season in the Championship and it is only natural that you are going to keep progressing.

“I’ll keep the same dedication and work ethic that I’ve shown to get where I am now and that will hopefully stand me in good stead for the future."
