Ngog - Maintain the momentum

French striker says the side's hard work in training is paying dividends on the pitch

David Ngog revealed his delight at scoring the opening goal in Wanderers’ 3-2 victory over Barnsley, but admitted that the team cannot afford to rest on their laurels.

Despite notching his sixth of the campaign against the Tykes to extend the team’s unbeaten run to six games, the Frenchman firmly believes that the Whites must capitalise on their fine form of late by securing similar results against both Blackburn and Brighton this week.

“All the team worked really hard against Barnsley - it was a difficult game against a good team and it was a good win,” the 23-year-old said following the final whistle at Oakwell.

“We are understanding each other better and better. The work in training has been good and it is starting to pay off on the pitch – now we have to keep doing it.”

The win over David Flitcroft’s side ensured that the team remain in the hunt for a top six finish – something which the striker firmly believes is a realistic possibility for the club.

“We are getting closer - we still believe in it,” he explained. “Blackburn (on Tuesday) is a home game, and we will try to do our best and work as a team to get a good result.”

After scoring a late equaliser against Brighton when the sides met on the south coast earlier this season, Ngog admitted that the team will certainly not be taking anything for granted against the high-flying Seagulls.

“They are a good team – we know their quality, but I am sure we have the quality to match them and we are looking forward to the game.”
