“It is my first senior start and to grab a couple of goals and an assist is a dream come true.
“I have worked hard, and I am glad that the gaffer has given me an opportunity to play. Thankfully, I have rewarded him with a couple of goals and helped the lads towards the win.
“It is always good to have the depth and quality in the squad. When you have that many forward players coming back from injury it does drive you on because you want to prove a point. Competition is always good in and around the squad because it is friendly competition here, but we all support each other. I didn’t think it was the best performance from me personally but to grab the goals and an assist keeps me in the gaffer’s mind and hopefully I can carry that on.
“The boy were unbelievable in some of our play during the 90 minutes. We have been moving the ball really well, we have been confident in the ball, we have been scoring, it is just important that we carry that on. We have a league game with Celtic this Sunday and then the cup semi-final which will be all guns blazing.
“It will be a good challenge, but we are feeling confident and we are up to that test.”
