JASON Scotland sees manager Paul Jewell’s summer search for at least one new striker as a challenge, not a threat to him.

Scotland will be looking to add to his 10 goals for the campaign, at Leicester City tomorrow (12.45pm kick-off).

The 32-year-old has been disappointed with his goal-haul, especially the lack of goals on the road – just one of his 10 strikes have come away from home.
