Bodvarsson: Nothing Beats That!

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson described his last-gasp winner as the best feeling possible after capping another Wanderers’ comeback.

Bodvarsson and Amadou Bakayoko both came off the bench to score as the Whites hit back to beat Burton Albion 2-1 in dramatic fashion.

Bakayoko’s equaliser came in the 87th-minute before Bodvarsson struck eight minutes into added time as Ian Evatt’s men followed up their come-from-behind win at Accrington last weekend to move up to fifth in the League One table.

“How can you not be romantic about football? It was a really good win in the end,” said Bodvarsson, who drilled home his fourth goal of the season with virtually the last kick of the game.

“I was thinking to myself it’s not going to be our day. We had so many chances and they were defending for their lives and then seeing the ball in the back of the net in the last second game of the game – nothing beats that.

“Me and Baka are always ready. We know what we’re capable of late in games.

“The way the team plays we are naturally going to make the opponents tired.

“We know coming on from the bench we’re going to have to have a lot of energy and I thought we did it really well.

“It was good for Baka as well to get a goal. He took that finish brilliantly and really deserved it.”

The win over Burton – Wanderers’ first in eight attempts against the Brewers – completed a huge four days for Wanderers as they ended a three-game winless league run.

And it also saw Bodvarsson back on a high after securing a sixth home league win of the season.

“It’s a weird game. It’s an emotional roller-coaster at times and you have to be a strong character to contend with those high and low emotions,” the Icelander added.

“I was frustrated with myself in the last game (at Accrington). I didn’t think I was as good as I wanted to be. I have high standards of myself and I just make sure to come back stronger and I think I did quite well today.

“I’m just delighted for the club and for the team to get that result. Two wins in a row is massive and it’s good for the atmosphere for the fans.

“You can feel that in the bottom of your heart every game. If you get three points everyone is happy and that’s what it’s all about.”
