INTERVIEW: Viktor Gyokeres Sheffield Wednesday Reaction

The striker scored his first goal for the Sky Blues...

28 January 2021

Viktor Gyokeres was on the scoresheet as he scored his first Sky Blues goal in the 2-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday at St Andrew’s.

The striker managed to latch onto a through ball by Callum O’Hare before slotting home from close range to find the breakthrough before Jamie Allen’s late strike made it 2-0.

He believes it was important to see hard work pay off and that getting to build relationships early on has helped him to feel at home.

He said: “Three points is always nice and I am very happy with that and it is always nice to score a goal as a striker.

“In previous games I was having many chances and coming off the bench quite a lot, so having felt in that way I just kept working hard and hopefully I can get the chance to score and I am glad I did it today.

“It is nice to get a rhythm and play games so you get more into it and more well known with the players as well, I want to help the team also and it is a good opportunity for me.

“I could run in behind a lot from that side and it felt good, we said that we needed to keep going and not give them so many set pieces because that’s what they aimed for and tried to get chances from that, so we kept playing and we got them chances.”

He then told how he was appreciative of O’Hare’s ability to create chances and that getting the first goal in the second half was important in allowing them to pick up three points.

He said: “It was a good build up and Callum made a great pass to me so it was a good goal, it is always good to get the first goal because you can build on that and keep on going.

“It is nice when you have somebody in behind who wants to play with you and tries to find you, that helps and we have other midfielders as well who can do good things on the pitch. I feel like we have a good team.

“Really good players I think and a lot of quality in the group and we can build on that and do-good things.

“It was a nice feeling and everyone is happy with a great win, hopefully we can get more wins like this.”
