KEIGAN Parker has admitted he doesn't know his Huddersfield Town future.
The striker, on loan at Hartlepool, said he hadn't spoken to Town boss Lee Clark about what would happen at the end of the season when his loan in North East ends.
Talking to the Sunderland Echo, Parker said: "I don't know what's happening at Huddersfield. It's not something I've spoken to Lee Clark about.
"There's big ambition down there. But I've still got a year on my contract so it will need to suit me if I'm going to be moving on.
"I've played enough games to know playing first-team football is better than playing for the reserves."
Parker, who has scored just twice in his Town career since the start of the season when he joined on a free from Blackpool, admitted his first goal for Hartlepool United needs to come sooner rather than later if he is to keep his starting spot.
The on-loan striker was up front alongside Hartlepool's 21-goal Joel Porter in Saturday's 4-2 win over Hereford.
He said: "I've been in the game long enough to know if you're not doing the business, you're not going to get in the team."
He added: "Joel is a great player at this level and has scored a lot of goals this season.
"I don't know what's happening with him next season but obviously if he does go it will be a big loss to the club."
Parker's barren run has not stopped Pools finding the back of the net as a team with eight in their last three games.
The problems have come at the other end with eight conceded in the same run of games – two of which came for second bottom Hereford minutes after Pools had taken the lead.
Parker said: "Maybe it's mental thing. When we go a goal up, we tend to take our foot off the gas so we need to cut that out.
"In the previous two games, we had scored two goals in each but got beat. That paints a picture in itself.
"When you are leaking a lot of goals it plays on your mind. But I think we showed good character to get in the result in the end.
"We have played better in the last three or four games and got beat so when you're near the bottom you need to take what you can to win games."
