“A goal is a goal - it gives you confidence to score even more which is what I will be aiming to do in the coming games.
“It has been good to get game-time during the international break to keep us match ready for our next test against Aston Villa.

“Everyone is looking forward to getting back into league action and Aston Villa will be another tough test for us.
