Martin Samuelsen scored his first international goal for Norway on Tuesday with the Blackburn loanee from West Ham now looking for further involvement with Rovers.

He’s so far been limited to just the two appearances from the substitutes bench with Blackburn back in action at Ewood Park against Ipswich on Saturday, which he’ll hope will bring his first start.

Samuelsen admitted he’s found it ‘tough’ so far with him quoted by the Lancashire Telegraph as being sure he’s got plenty to offer.

‘It has been a tough start, you can say, both for the team and for me. There has been little playing time. I wish that I could have been involved more and contribute, to score and create goals, which is something I can do, but that`s it.’

Adding he feels Owen Coyle will soon give him his chance when the winger will prove himself.

‘The coach has a lot to think about and cannot go and talk to each player. I hope the turning point comes soon because I`m sure when I get to play I`m going to show what I can do.’

Those selected ahead of Samuelsen haven’t exactly been ripping up trees so would be do any worse? If he’s not involvement more before the end of the year West Ham are likely to recall him, which they have the option to do in January.
