Beck relishing striking form

Edinson Cavani believes that his Napoli side are close to

realising their dream of winning the Serie A title.

Napoli currently sit in second place in the table after Monday’s

1-0 away victory against Cagliari, and have realistic hopes of

winning their first Scudetto since 1990.

Striker Cavani has been key to the club’s revival in recent

seasons, and is once again the club’s top scorer with eight league

goals during the current campaign. The Uruguayan has spoken of his

happiness at the club and belief that league success is an

achievable goal.

“I came here to enter in the people’s hearts and leave a mark on

the history of the club,” Cavani told

Chi.

“This is a sensational period and for this reason I must thank

my family. When I am on the pitch I want to win at all costs. The

Scudetto? It isn’t a far-off dream.”

Cavani’s team-mate Marek Hamsik believes the club’s serene

progress in the Europa League will assist the title assault.

“It was very important to reach the next round in the Europa

League with a game to spare so we can better concentrate on the

league,” Hamsik said.

“I want four wins up to Christmas, starting obviously against

Pescara; a game that is easy on paper.”

The two clubs are set to meet in a highly charged FA Cup

second-round clash this weekend, the first game between them since

AFC were formed 10 years ago in response to Wimbledon’s move to

Milton Keynes.

“They asked us not to (go),” Robinson told the Football League

podcast.

“That’s what we’ve got to respect. They played at Morecambe at

the weekend and (MK Dons scout) Alex Rae went down. We’ve watched

DVDs and everything else and we’ve tried to do our job.

“We’re a professional football club and we’ve got to rise above

any negativity. I’m sure AFC Wimbledon want to do the same.”

AFC Wimbledon have told BBC Sport that MK Dons staff were

welcome at Kingsmeadow but suggested they should not wear club

clothing. The club also expressed concern that Robinson’s presence

at the ground could prove inflammatory.

Beck struck a brace in Saturday’s 3-1 victory at Yeovil to take

his goal tally this season to three, following a crucial equaliser

in the Capital One Cup victory against Ipswich in September.

The 18-year-old Beck is one of three teenagers to have impressed

for the Cumbrians this term, alongside Brad Potts and Dave

Symington.

He told the Carlisle News & Star: “I’m over the moon to get

off the mark in the league and for the lads to get such a good away

win.

“I was more pleased with the second one. I watched it come down,

hit it first time and as soon as I hit it I knew it was going

straight in. Luckily for me, that’s what happened.

“I’ve been given my chance and hopefully I’ll stay in the team

and score more goals.”
