DAVIS Keillor-Dunn is desperate to build on an impressive January and help Latics towards the sharp end of the League Two table.

The midfielder scored three goals to kick off the new year in fine style, one of those the sublime later winner against Salford in what remains Latics’ last taste of match action at the end of January.

Having missed out on the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award, Keillor-Dunn yesterday came out on top in the fans’ poll for PFA Fans’ Player of the Month.

Now though, he wants that to be just the start, with Oldham hoping to be finally back in action in their rearranged game at Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night.

“It’s really good to be recognised for your personal contribution,” the Sunderland-born attacker said.

“It’s nice to get nominated and win one but it shows it’s not just me, it’s the lads who have all been working really hard to get more positive results.

“The gaffer and the full squad are really buying into what we need to do here.

“If we play well we all benefit from it in the end.

“Personally for me, it’s nice to get a few more goals as well and keep adding to my tally for the season.

“We’re just over halfway through now and I’d like to do a little bit better in the second half of the season, so if anything it can push us on even further and we can get up and around the play-off positions which is what everyone wants.”

Arriving from Wrexham in the summer, the 23-year-old admits it took him time to get used to life in League Two but his fine January means he now has six goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Harry Kewell’s side.

“I think, when you come into a new league there’s always a little bit where you have to find your feet, you get used to the hard work that is needed and you start to understand the gaffer and the assistant more and more,” he told the club website.

“So maybe people have looked at the improvements I’ve made since I arrived.

“I’ve mentioned it before, but when I’ve come more central I’ve felt more confident in the way I can influence games, but the gaffer has also said to pull the trigger a little bit more and I’ve got to shoot when I get an opening.

“If you don’t shoot and take your chances there’s always someone else waiting to take your place so if anything the competition

created in the midfield area has made everyone step up their game at least.

“Getting a few more shots off and then getting forward into the box helps massively. And if you’re in there around the danger area you’re always going to be a threat to the opposition. So I think that’s the two main things that stick out.”
