OMAR Daley believes Motherwell fans have yet to see the best of him despite a string of impressive performances since breaking into the first team.
The Jamaican internationalist has been waiting patiently on the sidelines since his move to Motherwell in September but has started the last four SPL games.
Daley is currently keeping fellow winger Chris Humphrey out the side but admits he will have to maintain his form to retain a starting place.
“Everyone is fighting for the shirt and there is no time to switch off,” he admitted this week.
“I think every game I am getting better and better and I am just waiting to reach my very best form.
“I am getting my fitness up and need to keep going and plugging away.
“But I am feeling good. The gaffer knows what I can do and I have to get it right on the pitch, keep it simple and not try and over-do things.”
The 30-year-old has netted twice for his new club including the vital winner against Aberdeen last month in his first competitive start.
He had chances to add to his tally against St Mirren last Saturday and is keen to get on the scoresheet during the busy festive period.
"As a winger you should be looking at getting one goals in every three games,” he said. “You need to set yourself a target and try and achieve it.
“I am looking to kick on and I’m looking forward to the festive period where hopefully we can pick up some wins and I can get on the scoresheet again.
“The games are getting more difficult for Motherwell because of how well we have being doing. Teams want to knock us down which I think is a compliment.
“But everything is really good. I am settling in well. I know Nicky (Law) from at Bradford and Rotherham and all the lads are good to me. The ambition at the club is really high.”
Motherwell have failed to register a home win since victory over Aberdeen on September 24.
Again they were left frustrated as St Mirren held them to a 1-1 draw at Fir Park last weekend.
However Daley, who has more than 60 caps for Jamaica, feels there are plenty of positives to take into the Christmas Eve clash at Hearts as Motherwell look to make it a remarkable six away wins on the bounce.
“It’s a shame we could not pick up the win against St Mirren but it was a great game to play in,” Daley said.
“It was a very high tempo affair and I really enjoy playing in these kind of games.
“The manager was pleased with how it went even though we didn’t get the win and the lads will still be buzzing when we go to Hearts.”
Despite the gloom surrounding the Tynecastle club just now Daley expects a tough game against a side who put four past Dunfermline last time out.
The Reggae Boy continued: “I know they are having a lot of problems just now off the pitch but when the whistle blows it’s a game of football.
“Maybe if we are leading 3-0 their heads could go down but it starts 0-0 and I fully expect the Hearts players to be up for the game. We will have to apply ourselves properly.”
He added: “My Jamaican teammate Ricardo Fuller used to play at Hearts so I know about the club.
“It’s a great ground and I am looking forward to playing there.”
