It's a numbers game for Damian

Argentinian forward Damian Casalinuovo is raring to go and desperately keen to increase his personal goal tally of ten from last season.

The 23-year-old will though first have to break up the successful partnership of Jon Daly and David Goodwillie after the pair netted twenty-six times between them for the Scottish Cup winners last term.

"It`s my second season, so I`m more confident now and we have Europe to look forward to as well, which gives us more confidence," Casalinuovo told the Evening Telegraph. "I have great hopes to do better than last season, so that is a great challenge.

"My target is to get in the first XI. because last season, for it being my first, I think I played a lot of games — but I mean to improve on that," he continued. "My aim for this season is to be playing every week and to be an option for the manager.

"I would like to set a target of 12 goals. Last season, I scored eight goals for Dundee United and two for Raith Rovers, so 10 in total.

"This season I certainly would not like to score less than 10 goals."
