SAM PARKIN insists he and Tommy Mooney have plenty of goals left in the tank to push Town towards promotion as Andy King calls on his team to develop a more ruthless streak and banish the nerves.

Fresh from signing a new two-year deal, the striker celebrated by notching his 10th goal of the campaign in a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers at the County Ground.

Parkin edged one ahead of Mooney in the scoring stakes with his goal on Saturday but he has no doubts the pair will both be celebrating healthy hauls come the end of the season.

He said: "Hopefully Tommy and I will both get 20 goals this year. That's what we are aiming for."

Although delighted with his own tally so far, especially having missed a month through injury, the modest 22-year-old immediately hailed the contribution of his striking partner.

Parkin said: "I wouldn't have scored 10 goals so far if it hadn't been for Tommy Mooney this year.

"I'd like to think I've played my part in quite a few of his as well.

"He's just having one of those spells that strikers go through at times.

"I am confident we can get in the play-offs. Eight points from our last 12 is certainly promotion form. We are all determined to keep it going."

The man who signed Parkin continues to insist he has the best two strikers in the division but Andy King acknowledges that Town need to develop the knockout habit when they are bossing Division Two encounters.

He said: "If we are going to achieve what we want and what we are capable of at this football club, we have got to get across that winning line in matches like this.

"We just have a tendency to drop too deep. We know the reasons for it. It's been a long time since something's happened here and I don't know, maybe there is a nervousness."

Steve Robinson was the only major casualty from the draw with QPR but physio Dick Mackey is hopeful the player has not suffered any serious damage to his knee, after he was stretchered off in the second half.

He said: "We'll have a look at it today but I'm fairly optimistic. Robbo's a fairly resilient character."

Town's reserves are back in action on Wednesday afternoon when Bristol City visit the County Ground for a second string derby clash.

Alan Reeves' men will be looking to extend their impressive unbeaten run. The match kicks off at 2pm.
