Woodrow: "I'm enjoying my football here."

2 December 2018

The Reds striker knocked in another couple of goals in Saturday's victory over Southend United in the Emirates FA Cup and he spoke to the press afterwards.

Prolific forward Cauley Woodrow went back to former loan-club Southend and his double helped the Reds progress in this year's FA Cup.

He spoke to the assembled media post-match and admitted his first goal was a rather unique finish.

"Southend are a good side," he told us.

"This is a difficult place to come to, so we're delighted to get the result and get into the next round.

"We'd worked hard to get in front.

"I don't think Southend had a shot on target in the first half but then they've got the equaliser just before half time. 

"But we knew in the changing room that if we regrouped and got back to playing our style we'd get the win, and we did. 

"The 'keeper's punched the ball straight into my teeth for the first goal! 

"I'll claim it. Thankfully all my teeth are still in place so I'm delighted."

In just one month's football as a Red since returning from injury, things couldn't have gone much better for the on-loan striker.

Five goals already, and a superb partnership forming up top with Kieffer Moore.

Woodrow admits it was difficult dealing with the layoff but has made sure he hit the ground running upon his return to first team action.

"I've said before it was very hard for me with the injury, and not being involved. But I was brought here for a reason and that's to score goals and get this club back where it belongs.

"I just want to carry on putting in good performances and doing anything I can to help the team.

"I'm enjoying my football here."
