DANNY Ventre has set his sights on hitting his manager John Coleman in the pocket this season.
The 20-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Reds in the summer after securing a more regular place in the side at the back end of last season.
And now his aim is to get on the scoresheet and take some cash from Coley.
"I say to him every half-time what odds would he give me to score? I offer him 200-1 but he never takes me up on it. One day he will and one day I will score and he will have to pay up!"
Defender Ventre hasn't yet scored a goal for the Reds but he has stung many a goalkeepers hands with some long range efforts which have come close to finding the back of the net.
"I like to have a go and one day one will go in!" he laughed.
Ventre, though, is currently facing a battle to get back into the first team. He played a few games before February but then got a first team slot and started 10 games between then and the end of the season as injuries and suspensions kicked in.
"I know it is going to be hard," he said. "But there are a lot of games this season and there will unfortunately be suspensions and injuries and I have got to try and get a first team place then, if I don't start tomorrow.
"There is competition here for a starting place and, like everyone, I would like to play all the time. But if I not involved initially things can change over a season so I have just got to be there."
One game Ventre would love to play in is the opening match against Chester as he was released from there before he moved to Accrington last season.
"It will be nice to go back there. I was released with around 25 other players last summer. I was there when Ian Rush was manager and then I was sent out on loan to Droylsden.
"Keith Curle then came in a released almost everyone. I was a youth player and he told me I had under-achieved for the first team but I was a youth player and hadn't played in the first team. I felt hard done by but then I came to Accrington."
Initially it was a six month deal and then, at Christmas, he took another contract to the end of the season.
He was thrown into the limelight when he was sent off against Hereford for hand ball in the 2-2 draw which ended Stanley's winning streak.
"I still think that was harsh. I have watched the video and you can't tell but I have had my sendings off now and I don't want another one.
"I have got a one-year contract and in one way there is more pressure as I have got to perform to sign a new one for next year.
"But I am enjoying it. We are a young team apart from Mullers (Paul Mullin) and Rocky (Robbie Williams) and everyone does get on really well and we all enjoy playing football together. It is entering the unknown in League Two but why can't we do what Yeovil, Doncaster and Carlisle have done and go straight up?"
