Barnsley 1 v 2 Ipswich Town
SkyBet Championship

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.”

Having lost at home to Hibs today I wonder what Rangers fans are saying?

A player who thrives off confidence, that first goal was crucial.

Bloody hell! Is Waggo our new Marcus Stewart? Let's get carried away while we still can. Top of the League after Millwall?
