INTERVIEW: Viktor Gyökeres looks ahead to QPR clash and talks Wigan stunner

The Sweden International looks ahead to tomorrow's Championship clash...

11 November 2022

Sky Blues striker Viktor Gyökeres is hoping that City can continue their impressive run on Saturday, when they welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Coventry Building Society Arena.


Mark Robins' side came out 2-0 winners on Tuesday night with goals from Gustavo Hamer and Gyökeres, with the latter being the pick of the pair as the Sweden International raced from inside his own half to score.

The goal secured the win at the CBS and lifted Coventry to 12th, just five points off the play-off places.

Looking ahead to this weekend's clash with QPR, who sit sixth, Gyökeres said:

On his individual goal against Wigan Athletic...

"It was nice to get one in the last minute. It's always nice to score.

"For me, personally, when you haven't scored in a game you're always hungry to score. You don't really think about how tired you are, you just want to score.

"It feels amazing to score a goal like I did against Wigan. I felt like I couldn't breathe after it because I was so tired.

"The fans are supporting both the team and me. I'm enjoying it every game and I hope we get the same on Saturday.

"It killed the game off. It was so nice. It was a really good feeling. 

"I've tried to score different kinds of goals, or at least to be able to do so. That's something I want to improve on and do better.

"The last two have been different. Hopefully, it continues like that."

On the team's recent form...

"I think now the season is normal. We're playing regularly and that helps a lot, playing game after game.

"We are used to playing with each other now and that has helped us a lot.

"I have played in attack as a two and in attack alone. Both are good for me. It depends on the game and how the opposition players."

 On the run of clean sheets...

"It's really good. That's how you win games. It certainly helps in the tight games when you don't concede and you score the first goal.

"Last season we concede first in a lot of games and it feels good to be taking the lead in the games recently.

"This helps us as a team as well."

On his journey with the Sky Blues...

"Mark Robins and Adi Viveash have really helped, and so too has all the game time.

"I am getting regular game time on the pitch, playing game after game, and that is how you develop the most.

"The most important thing is playing games and that is what I want to do. I am happy to be here and I am happy to be playing this many games.

"I'm really enjoying it here. And the fans are great. I had to wait to meet them due to Covid but it was really good from that point on. It's been great.

"They drive me on when I need it and when they're paying well they keep us going."
