Obika: Good To Continue Form

1 March 2016

JON Obika was pleased that Town could extend their winning streak after netting both goals in the 2-0 win over Doncaster at the County Ground.

The frontman moved into double figures for the season and declared that the home side's patience against Rovers paid dividends with goals in either half securing a fourth win in a row.

"We're pleased with the performances," he told the media after the game. "We’re on good form so it's good to continue this. I thought we were patient in possession and we got our rewards with the goal just before half time.

"It (the first goal) was a good counter from the team. We all came up together because we worked on that in training and I'm glad it paid off. I just thought "it's coming to me" - I knew I was onside because I came from deep so just got the touch. (For the second goal) You try and get across your defender. I couldn’t so had to use a bit of strength and finish in the end.

"As a striker you always want to get on the end of things and finish moves. If the team is winning and I can contribute then I'm happy."

On securing a clean sheet, Obika added: "Lawrence and the back four deserved that so I'm happy for them."
