Ellis Iandolo was thrilled to get off the mark for Town on Tuesday but was disappointed to have bowed out of the Checkatrade Trophy.
The youngster notched his first professional goal last night with a stunning strike, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 3-2 defeat to Luton Town at SN1.
“It was a good strike and I knew it was going in when it left my foot,” he said.
“I caught it well and I just found myself in a lot of space and hit it – it is good to get my first goal for the club.
“The more you try it does get a lot harder so sometimes you’ve just got to let things happen.
“I found myself in some space, hit the ball well and it went in.
“I was always relaxed that it would come and you’ve always got to try and stay as relaxed as you can in football.
“Hopefully there will be more to come from me.
“It was disappointing not to get a result out of it but the players individually all played well, considering that there was a few in there that hadn’t played together before like Darnell Furlong and Conor Thomas.
“They did well but it was disappointing to go out of the cup and it would have been nice to have more of a run in it.
“I’ve had a lot of game time in this cup recently so to be out of it means maybe not as much game time for me, but hopefully I can start picking up a few more appearances in the league and better myself.
“As a team we are disappointed but we’ll go again on Saturday.”
Iandolo is now looking forward to Saturday’s trip to Sheffield United and is feeling confident ahead of the game.
“It is a massive game for us and everyone looks forward to going up to Sheffield United,” he added.
“It is a massive stadium so it is one of those goosebump moments when you hear the music and you come out, so everyone is looking forward to it.
“We take confidence from the fact that we did well at Bramall Lane last year. The team is obviously a bit different from what it was last year but the team is going there to fight."
