DA: Jamar, first of all welcome to Yeovil Town. From your point of view was it an easy decision to come to Yeovil?
JL: Definitely as I'm really excited about playing in League One football, playing as much as I can and scoring as many goals as I can, and that's the main aim.
DA: Was it a concern when you look at the table and they're bottom of League One? Was that a concern or is that part of the challenge to get them up there?
JL: It's part of the challenge, but seeing them today in training there's no way we should be where we are. Hopefully I can help them push up the table and get out of the situation that we're in.
DA: From a fans point of view, what sort of a player will they be seeing in a Yeovil shirt?
JL: I like to run in behind. I love scoring goals, but also I let the ball come to feet as well and link up with play.
DA: That's important, isn't it, as the team obviously need all the goals that they can get. It's not just you, but Gozie has arrived as well. It's new fresh blood up front, so is it a chance for you to really flourish.
JL: Yes definitely - I think it's good that they've brought in two strikers, so it doesn't put the emphasis upon one alone scoring all the goals. So we both have to make sure we chip in and score goals and try to win games for Yeovil Town Football Club.
DA: Is your target to get game time, and to score as many goals as you can. Is that how you see it, as well as helping the team?
JL: Yes obviously the main priority is getting the club out of the situation that they're in. If I can help by scoring goals, then that's my personal aim - to score loads of goals. My number one aim has to be to get Yeovil up that table.
DA: You're initially here for a month long loan. Would you be open to extending that for longer if that goes well?
JL: Yes if all goes well and we're successful in winning games and scoring goals, then definitely - and then maybe extend it until the end of the season.
DA: What has your parent club said to you about your loan move?
JL: Well they want me to get out and playing as well, as obviously I wasn't playing a lot at Norwich. So it's to get senior football and senior goals as well.
DA: You've also enjoyed your loan spells away at other clubs, so you've got that experience of playing and just want to add to that and feel you can do the same here?
JL: Yes I had good memories and success at Southend, so I definitely want to keep that going and continue it here.
DA: Bradford are the weekend opponents. A tough game from your point of view to start with but nice to be at Huish Park.
JL: Definitely - I have played against Bradford before, whilst I was at Coventry, and they're a tough direct side, but I'm very hopeful that we can get a good result.
DA: They've got a potential distraction in that they've got Chelsea in the FA Cup. Is that something that you maybe can use to your advantage, and hope they're distracted?
JL: Yes, because they're going to keep a close eye on that game, so we need to take full advantage of that and make sure that we're 100 percent at it.
