SWINDON TOWN: Lukas happy to go Dutch
LUKAS Jutkiewicz has some way to go before matching Dennis Bergkamp's achievements but the Town youngster is a firm disciple of the Dutch striker's football philosophy.
Late winners in successive victories over Torquay and Bury respectively have seen the teenager fire his side to the brink of automatic promotion.
However, the really top players are never completely satisfied and Jutkiewicz always believes there is more to do.
The youngster is happy to see the net bulging but feels there is still plenty of room for improvement.
Bagging the goal which clinches promotion would be a dream come true' but hard work in a team effort is the main focus.
Jutkiewicz said: "One of my heroes when I was younger was Dennis Bergkamp and he always said that whatever he does he always thinks he can do more.
"That's something I've tried to put into my game, never to be satisfied.
"Be happy but never be 100 per cent satisfied because there's always something else you can do to help the team."
Not that Jutkiewicz is exactly shirking on the help' front.
His goals have played a big part in helping Town remain on course at a jittery stage in the campaign.
A big money move to Everton beckons in the summer and he is a key member of a promotion-chasing team, all a far cry from just 12 months ago.
It is barely a year since the-then 17-year-old was handed his first team debut in a 2-1 defeat at Swansea City.
He said: "A lot happens in a year in football, a lot happens in a week!
"You've just got to roll with it and I've thoroughly enjoyed the last 12 months. it's been brilliant.
"When I first came here I thought now would be the sort of time where I would maybe be getting a sniff on the bench or getting a few minutes here and there.
"This has all come about a lot quicker than I'd anticipated."
Jutkiewicz loves that winning feeling and it is one he will be taking with him him to Goodison Park.
He will also say farewell, an improved player thanks to the time Paul Sturrock and his coaching team have spent working with him.
He said: "It's about picking up a winning habit more than anything.
"Hopefully I can take the things I've learned under the coaching staff here to Everton.
"The gaffer was a striker himself and he's taught me a number of things that have helped me - Summers and Sloop as well."
