Jelavic goals will come

Jelavic goals will come

When Nikica Jelavić first hit the scene following his £5.5million move from Rangers to Everton the Croatian simply couldn't stop scoring.

He'd just enjoyed a run of games from late August 2010 to January 2012 scoring 37 goals in 54 appearances for the once giants of Scottish football.

After what appeared to be a slow start, thanks mainly down to injury his first Everton goal didn't come until March, but ten more were to follow as he signed off the season with 29 goals in 51 appearances for Rangers, Everton and Croatia.

This season though for both club and country he has been less prolific, scoring 7 in 24 appearances.

2 goals in his last 14 Premier League matches simply isn't the return we've come to expect from Jelavić, but former gaffer Howard Kendall is in no doubt that the scoring boots will be dusted off soon.

'If you start thinking 'it`s not happening for me` or 'I`m never going to score` it will become a self fulfilling prophecy. he told The Echo.

He continued: 'But if you continue to chase lost causes and put yourself into positions where you can score goals, the chances will come.

'And a player of Jelavic`s quality will always score.

He definitely will start scoring again as true quality never dies! I was a bit worried at first because i noticed he was moaning a lot and going down far too easily at the slightest of touches but the other night against Newcastle he showed a willingness to work for the team. This paid a huge dividend and he played a big part in Victors goal!

Thoughts exactly Dan, offers this side more than goals, work rate is phenomenal, just needs a bit of luck and the goals will return again.
