Sean McConville was delighted to grab his first goals of the campaign during the 3-0 win over Carlisle.
It was a stunning double from the midfielder, a first-half free-kick curled into the top corner before a fine individual effort early into the second.
After penning a new deal in July, the 28-year-old stressed he was keen to find the back of the net more often, after racking up 17 assists the previous campaign.
But after seeing his side move up to second place in Sky Bet League Two, McConville insists his focus is firmly fixed on the team goal of gaining promotion.
“I’ve always said I need to add more goals to my game,” he said. “The assists are important but the goals are what my game needs.
“It might sound cliche but for me this season isn’t about personal glory’s, it’s about promotion that’s the one thing personally that I want on my CV.
“The gaffer has done brilliantly to assemble a really good squad this summer, with some great additions like, Kayden [Jackson], Mallik [Wilks], Farrend [Rawson] and Jordan [Thorniley] who have all stepped up to the mark so far.”
McConville’s brace capped a fine week for the midfielder who was nominated for League Two Player of the Year in the 2017 Northwest Football Awards.
“I’m happy,” he added. “It’s a great achievement to be nominated and hopefully the Accrington public come out in force and vote for me like they did with the FA Cup goal of the round competition which I won.
“It will be a good night for myself and my family and it would be lovely to pick another award up.”
