Garry Hill has backed Gozie Ugwu to score 20 goals in the National League this season.

Ugwu rejoined Ebbsfleet this week having twice played for the club on loan before.

He also worked under manager Garry Hill at Woking in 2016/17, scoring 17 league goals in 43 appearances.

Hill said: “I’ve always got a very good response out of Gozie Ugwu.

“When he was at Woking he got 20 goals for me in a season and I think he’s capable of getting 20-odd goals this season again if he stays fit and gets the service.

“He’s a good size, he’s very mobile, he’s strong and I think he’s been well-received by the supporters at Ebbsfleet when he came in on loan.

“I think they liked his work-rate, his aggression and his power. He had an opportunity in that short stay and it’s given him an insight of the football club going forward where he can hit the ground running quite early.”
