Montano’s attitude top-notch - Dickov

Date published: 13 December 2012

A STRONG appetite for the game has led to Cristian Montano’s return to form.

The former West Ham winger - 21 on Tuesday -experienced a dip recently that coincided with personal difficulties.

But Athletic manager Paul Dickov has been delighted with his performance in recent games, particularly the latter stages of the FA Cup victory over Doncaster and the 2-0 win at Colchester.

“He has had a couple of personal issues which have probably affected his form. But now we are seeing what he is really about,” said Dickov.

Only Jose Baxter (on 51) has had more shots at goal this season than Montano (44), who was unfortunate not to find the net at Colchester.
