On how he assesses his development:  

“I’ve had to wait a long time to get this goal, but for my first one to be the one that wins the game makes me very emotional.  

“There’s still so much to come from me but I am gradually getting there.”

“We’ve bounced back well from the Ipswich game and that’s what football is about.
