Scholes Wants Early Goal

United have bounced back to life in recent times at home, grabbing 11 goals in their last four outings at Old Trafford, starting with a Carling Cup triumph over West Brom last month.

Paul Scholes: 'Down the years, we have been used to going into games at Old Trafford knowing we could be two or three goals up after 20 minutes.

'We have struggled to do that as often over the last couple of seasons but if we do get an early goal it really boosts our confidence and we feel we can go on and score a couple more.

'If we can start killing games off earlier, then maybe we will start scoring more freely.

'It was a relief to get back on the scoresheet, so perhaps I can get a few more now. I was a little worried when I wasn't scoring but all you can do is get into the right positions and hope the chances come.

'That is what I have done this season and what I must keep doing to start chipping in more regularly.

'I would rather be scoring because it helps the team but I am happy as long as United are winning.

'If we went all season without me scoring, but still won, I would not be too concerned.'
