EAGER Philip Billing outlined his quest to become “an all-round player” as he looks to maintain his stunning Championship form.

The 24-year-old struck his seventh goal of the season with a diving header against former club Huddersfield on Tuesday.

The goal helped set up a 2-1 victory for Jonathan Woodgate’s side and was the Dane’s fourth strike in five league outings.

In a recent interview with the club’s website, Billing admitted: “I’ve always been bad in the air, people don’t believe it but it’s something which has always annoyed me.

“Ever since I was a kid growing up in Denmark, I was brought up to play with my feet. I have always been a technical player.

“I know I need to be better in the air.”

Asked whether he had been working on his aerial ability, having scored a header against the Terriers, Billing told the Daily Echo: “I want to improve everything.

“I know I have the intention to become an all-round player, so that’s just what I want to work on.

“To do the defensive side, it’s helped playing in centre-mid for a lot of years, especially in the Prem, you learn a lot.

“Now I am playing further forward, so I have to get used to my attacking side – which I’ve always had – but that’s still something I’m adapting to.

“I feel like every game I’m just becoming better at it, taking up space to get on the ball and I’m just enjoying it in there at the minute.”

Boss Woodgate added: “I know he’s enjoying his football at the minute, playing higher up. He’s getting goals and assists and he’s a bit more free.

“He can head it as well. When I came, he said he wasn’t really one for heading it but now he’s assisting from corners, he’s heading them away from corners against. He’s heading goal-kicks.

“He’s adding that to his game and he’s a brilliant footballer, Phil. He’s got a lot of ability.

“When you see people train, you see a lot more. Oh my God, he has got some ability.”

Billing is set to be part of Woodgate’s squad to take on league leaders Norwich City at Carrow Road tomorrow (8pm).

Victory would take the Canaries back into the top flight, having been relegated alongside Cherries last season.

But although admitting Daniel Farke’s side were a “decent” outfit, the midfield star is keen to make sure the memorable moment does not happen against Cherries.

“To be fair, it’s going to be a tough game. We know how good Norwich are,” Billing added.

“They are a decent side, want to play football so that’s going to be a big game, especially for us as well.

“For them, I heard they have moved the match to 8pm because they can secure promotion. We are going to do our best to not make that happen against us, that’s for sure.”
