Britt could wait no longer

19 November 2012

Striker Britt Assombalonga was delighted to have ended his goal drought in Saturday’s 4-1 win at Torquay United.

The Blues forward had gone five matches without hitting the back of the net.

And he admitted he couldn't have gone much longer without scoring. 

“I hadn’t ever gone five games without scoring before and it wasn’t very nice, so ending the run was fantastic and I’m really pleased,” Assombalonga told the official website.

 “I kept on working hard when things weren’t going my way because when you do that I think you get your rewards.

“Mine came at Torquay and to win here 4-1 is a very good result because they hadn’t been beaten at home this season before playing us, so we’re feeling really good. We came out on fire and put in a really good performance.”

The win pushed Blues up to 10th in the League Two table, just two points below the play-offs.

But Assombalonga felt he should have had even more to celebrate after having what would have been a third goal ruled out for offside.

“For me I got a hat-trick because I came from the blind side of the defender and there was no way I was offside,” said the 19-year-old.

“The linesman obviously didn’t want me to have a third goal, so I’ll have to save that for another day now.

“However, after not scoring for a little while I’m perfectly happy to have got two.”
