Easy to forget because he's been available for nearly every game since joining, that the striker's had a great time in terms of staying largely injury-free.
“There was one or two weekends I missed through injury, I think. But that shows you how few because I'm struggling to remember them!
“The medical and sports science lads here are second-to-none, they really are.”
He was open-minded about the 'prehabilitation' and 'activation' routines that the players here go through, under the watchful eye of Head of Medical Richard Collinge and his team.
“I'd never done anything like that before, to be honest. I wouldn't say I was sceptical - just that I wasn't sure what to expect.
“But believe me, the preventative stuff works, it really does. I'm as good proof as anyone because I was often picking up niggles at Carlisle.
“Here, touch wood, I've had a fantastic run and I can only put that down to the way the staff look after me - and all the lads, of course.”
You won't hear too many footballers suggest that they enjoy coming to training just as much as playing matches. But here's one.
“I'd never have thought I'd have said it myself but, you know, training here is so good, the sessions are excellent and just driving in every morning is fantastic; knowing you're going to enjoy yourself even though you're working hard at the same time.
“We don't go running round fields for no apparent reason. It's all football-based work, getting us nice and sharp and bang up for the next game. Everyone just loves coming into training. You can see that round the canteen here,” he says, sitting talking just next to his second home, the table tennis table.
“There's always a game going on on there - and it's usually me, of course, because no one can knock me off!
“Like I say, though, you can feel that buzz. The new lads - Andros [Townsend], Andy [Weimann] and Danny [Drinkwater] - are settled in already because the boys include them in the banter and make them feel at home straight away.”
