The 32-year-old marked just his second league start of the season against Plymouth on Saturday with a goal and hopes it may keep his name in the starting XI.

"I've wanted to play more but there are some very good players in the squad and the forwards have been scoring," he told BBC Radio Kent. "I've had to wait my time and played a few different positions. We've got such a strong squad, you can't expect to play every week.

"I want to play up front and thankfully I got a goal. I give the gaffer another option. He likes to change the team and give everyone a go. If I can score and do well when I come in then I might start the next one.

"You won't play in the side unless you are willing to work and work for each other. The team spirit and the work rate is there. It's a tough league and to win it, or certainly be up there, you certainly need that.

"All the signs are that we will have a successful season but we have to keep doing what we're doing."
