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.”

There is no mistaking the current signs of players, management and administrators all being all on the same page. It is particularly good to see the first-team manager acknowledging the work of the academy coaches in recent days.
Back to the Old Firm by Mullet
That "drive” Mick referred to on Saturday night, was clearly the one from north of the wall not outside his house if today’s news regarding the impending signing of Martyn Waghorn from Rangers is to be believed.
You're the Bunn for ME, Harry by Mullet
After freelance journalist Alan Nixon threw the social media space of ITFC fans into turmoil, the expectation of a striker from a Premier League club predictably sent cynics and dreamers into action.
'Gay Footballers? No, the Fans Wouldn't Have It' by Tristan90
There has been a lot of coverage of late of the anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England in 1967 and much of it celebrates how far we have come in this country in terms of equality and acceptance.
A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
