Ahead of the new season, Kennedy revealed his goal target for the campaign as he commented: “I would like to get into double figures, I always give myself that target.

“The season before I got injured was the first time in my career that I’d scored more than 10. But I think as long as you get into the box, the chances will come your way so hopefully I can achieve that again here.

“It’s always nice to get a few goals under your belt in pre-season but it’s when the competitive season starts when you really want to pick those goals up.”
