15 April 2023

Sky Blues striker Viktor Gyökeres says he doesn't want to stop scoring now after moving beyond 20 goals for the season with his double against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

The forwards scored his side's first and third goal of a 3-0 win in West London, and played a crucial part in helping Gustavo Hamer to score City's second.

Those goals now mean Gyökeres has scored 21 goals in all competitions this term, and 20 in the Championship.

Speaking to the media at full-time, he revealed his delight at the achievement but says he still wants more.

On the win at Queens Park Rangers:

"They tried to make it a difficult game for us but sometimes you need to hang in there and be ready and defend as well.

"It's been frustrating recently because we know that we're close to the play-off places. We know that we have a chance but we haven't performed recently.

"We kept going and kept working hard and we've shown that today to get the result."

On his goals at Loftus Road:

"It's always nice to score early and to get the lead. It's also nice for me to get the goal. It was good.

"Gustavo Hamer likes going forward. He's so good in those areas and he gives me the ball in good positions. I was happy to score two.

"Ben [Wilson] also made some really good saves. He did a really good job today. We created the best chances, though, and we deserved those three points.

"Ben did his job really well. It's amazing that he has so many clean sheets.

"For the third goal, someone said that have nine men. I didn't notice but obviously, that must have helped us. Again, Gustavo found me with a good pass and I scored."

On his goal celebration, and its meaning:

"You want to know what it means? I'll tell you all at the end of the season."

On reaching 20 goals this season for the Sky Blues (21 in all competitions):

"I don't want to stop now. Hopefully, I score many more. We'll see how many I get.

"We have four games left, so let's see. I am far more focused on winning the games, not scoring goals."

Looking ahead to Wednesday's trip to Blackburn:

"It will be a good game. We've played well away from home recently and hopefully, we can continue that form. We need to supporters behind us, and I'm sure they will be."
