Cambridge United forward Liam Hughes is aiming to create a perfect attacking force at the club for season ahead that sees them back in the Sky BET League Two.
The 21 year old believes practice makes perfect and looks for perfection in the forward line at the U’s back in the Football League.
Cambridge United gave Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk a tough game on Sunday as they narrowly lost 3-2. Hughes played the first half up front and on the right wing in the second and troubled the Donetsk defense.
He believes the club are on the right tracks ahead of the first game of the new campaign against Plymouth in a few weeks time.
Talking to Cambridge News ”It was a good weekend for everyone. It’s still pre-season, so we’re just getting our work in and it’s good to get 90 minutes into a few boys. It was really enjoyable experience playing against some of the best teams in Europe and the lads enjoyed it. It was a shame we couldn’t get the result.
”We used it as an experience and to try different formations and players in different positions. We’ve been able to experiment a bit and it’s good to do it against these teams because they keep the ball well.
‘In the second half on Sunday we pressed, started high and went three at the back. If you practice something you get perfection. We’re not there yet at the full target, but we’re certainly working towards it.”
