CLARETS youngster Dan Agyei has put his spectacular strike for Walsall on Saturday down to hard work in training.

The 20-year-old is on loan with the Saddlers this season and he's made an impact at the Banks's Stadium, netting four goals in eight games and three in his last four appearances.

A couple of those strikes have been long-range screamers, a dramatic equaliser on his left foot against Charlton a few weeks ago and then Saturday's right-footed effort from a similar distance against League One leaders Shrewsbury Town.

Agyei swept the ball home from 25 yards to give Walsall the lead in a 1-1 draw, and said getting stronger on his weaker foot was something he'd been working on.

"I'm not used to scoring spectacular goals – it's a recent thing," he told the Express & Star.

"The goal against Shrewsbury was on my right foot, my weaker foot.

"But I’ve been working hard in training to be able to score goals with both feet. And the minute I hit it I thought it was going in which is a great feeling."

Agyei's been in fine form in the West Midlands and as he looks to build on an encouraging 2016/17 campaign.

He spent the first half of last season on loan with Coventry City, where he scored five goals in 19 games, and then returned to Turf Moor to make three cameo appearances off the bench for the Clarets against Liverpool, Everton and Manchester United.

"It’s always pleasing to score goals no matter how they go in," Agyei said.

"But I feel I am learning all the time. I've settled in really well here. All the boys have been great with me and given my advice.

"It's tough to know which goal is my favourite. The one against Shrewsbury was on my weaker foot.

"But Charlton was the last minute just seconds after we went behind so that one just wins."
