Kuffour keen to kick on after first goal

7 January 2013

Jo Kuffour has expressed his desire to score more goals in the second half of the season after grabbing his first for the club and the winner against Chesterfield on Saturday.

“Hopefully I’ve put that all behind me now and I can concentrate on going on a good run and help the boys push on up the table.”

He added: “My season’s been a bit disrupted so far. I didn’t have a pre-season and I came in late to the squad, then I was out for six weeks with my ankle injury.

“Hopefully that’ll be my first of many. As a striker you always get annoyed when you don’t score goals. I’ve been waiting for it to come and now it has, hopefully I can go on a bit of a roll now.”

“I needed one of them, it was just instinctive,” he said. “The ball was bouncing around in the box and I managed to help it over the keeper.

Kuffour pounced in the 54th minute, expertly lifting the ball over Tommy Lee to complete the turnaround in the 2-1 win over the Spireites. Wycombe’s front four has seen a number of changes this season due to suspensions and injuries, with Jo praising the work of the other forwards in the squad. 

He said: “The supporters have been great since I’ve been here - win, lose or draw they always get behind the lads.”

In customary Wanderers fashion under Gareth Ainsworth, Kuffour and his team-mates applauded the fans following the success over Chesterfield.

He said: “Matty’s come in this season and done great things. He’s a great player and I think he’s going to go on to higher things.”

There was also a notable mention for joint-top scorer Matt McClure.

He said: “We’ve definitely got a great front four, whoever is starting, and it’s exciting times for the second half of the season.”
