Waghorn Pleased to Hit Ground Running
Saturday, 12th Aug 2017 18:44
Striker Martyn Waghorn was delighted to open his Town goals account with the winner as the Blues came from behind to beat Barnsley 2-1 at Oakwell.
The 27-year-old, who cost a bargain fee of around £300,000 when he joined from Rangers earlier in the week, came on at half-time along with David McGoldrick and, after the Ireland international had equalised, slotted home the winner in the 70th minute.
“We started the game a bit sluggish and we turned the game around second half, which is huge for confidence and morale,” Waghorn, who was making his Blues league debut having come on as a sub in the Carabao Cup at Luton on Tuesday, said afterwards.
“As a striker and as a new player you always want to hit the ground running, start well and get the goal, I am very pleased with that.
“The win showed the spirit we have in this group, they all fight for each other, work for each other. “Coming to a place like this is going to be tough so going back down there with three points is huge for the lads.”

Five Points Off the Play-Offs and Mick Keeps Rolling Along by SpiritOfJohn

Phoenix From the Flames by SaleAway
The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

Hark Now Hear - This is Our Time by Pickersblue22
This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
