MATCH REACTION | Ranger back amongst the goals

14 November 2016

Nile delighted to be back scoring...

Nile Ranger said it was 'a buzz' to play and score two goals in Blues' 4-1 win away to Bury on Saturday.

Ranger bagged his first goal in over two years to give Blues the lead after nine minutes, then scored his second with a guided side foot on his left foot into the far corner.

And Blues' front-man explained everything, from how playing FIFA helped, to what it feels like getting back out on the pitch after two week's out.

"It's a buzz for all the lads," he said. "We've come away to Bury and I feel like we've done well to be fair.

"I've been injured and it's good to get out of that drought.

"I've played a few games now and two goals is excellent. It's my first brace in my career and my first left footed goal - off the wotsit as I say.

"I've been playing too much FIFA so the first goal I just had to put the finesse on it and it paid off, so I'm happy about that."

Ranger hopes he can now stay fit and help the team in the upcoming games against Bradford City and Swindon Town.

"It's frustrating being in and out of the team and getting these knocks. I've been out quite a while so it's good to be out on the pitch and scoring goals again and get that confidence going.

"The aim now is to kick on and stay fit.

"[As a team] we need to keep putting points on the table and keep pushing."
