Goalscoring hero Queensy Menig was delighted to net the winner on Saturday against Blackburn Rovers.
The winger came off the bench to score the 90th minute winner to secure a fourth successive win.
Speaking after the game, Menig said: “It feels great to score. I’m a striker or a winger and I always want to score. The win is more important to us.”
Menig raced straight over to the supporters once the ball hit the back of the net and he explained his reasons for that. “The fans are very important and without them we are nothing,” he said.
“They support us in good times and bad times so I do something back to them.”
The Dutchman has had to wait for his opportunity but he is now thriving under Richie Wellens.
“When I first came here, I directly had a click with him because he was on the pitch with us and trained with us,” he commented.
“The click turned and he is now the manager and nothing has changed. He talks to me, has confidence in me and he told me I need to be fitter.
“I’m getting fitter every day and I’m training hard and I was waiting for this chance and I’m happy to score and I’m hungry for more.”
Menig’s performance drew praise from skipper Peter Clarke who was impressed with his teammate.
Clarke said: “He was really good. He came on and knew his defensive role and did that well.
“He had a real spark and energy about his forward play. Every time he got the ball, he caused the opposition problems and something always came from it.
“Whether it was a shot, a cross, a through pass, and I thought he was terrific.
“His goal was well deserved and very well taken as well.”
