Davis Keillor-Dunn won the Player of the Month which was one of the only things Oldham fans have had to cheer about this season. The League Two side was trashed 7-0 in the Carabao Cup by Brentford. Keillor-Dunn has scored 13 goals this season while assisting a further three and has been the only shining light this season. He has been influential in helping his side from being cut adrift in the League Two table.
“I don’t want to sound big-headed, but I always believed in my ability. I knew I was getting to an age where wasn’t a young kid anymore and my numbers and my return needed to be great, otherwise I might have fallen by the wayside,” Oldham forward Davis Keillor-Dunn said. “I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to get those numbers and that’s what I pride myself on: my goals, my assists, my all-around performance. I always knew that if I was settled somewhere and enjoying my football, I would score and create goals wherever I was playing.”
“I’d rather be cruising and flying at the top of the league, but sometimes it happens where you’ve got to dig deep. Being a forward player, it’s down to me to create and score goals. I’ve done well up to now and hopefully, I can carry it on. It is not easy, but you have just got to keep knuckling down, giving your all, and seeing where it takes you at the end of the season,” he added. “Experiencing this now, I’ll have more of a heads-up when the going gets tough. I think you need to go through the tough times in football – and in life – to benefit and experience the good times. It’s not a good position to be in, but it’s good to learn from it and, when we get out of it, we can sit back and say ‘Let’s not let that happen again.”
