Woodrow: “I’ve found my feet and got amongst the goals.”

18 December 2018

In-form striker Cauley Woodrow stated he’s ‘loving’ being at Oakwell at the minute, as the Reds look to turn draws into wins over the festive period.

Last-time out, it was Woodrow’s equaliser that secured a point against table-topping Portsmouth in a match that saw enough chances for Daniel Stendel’s side to take all three.

“To be honest I think we should have won the game.” Woodrow stated. “We came out with a draw after going one-nil down which was good, but we should have won. Overall, we showed our real quality, but it wasn’t to be, we’ll move on quickly and look to next week.

“The main point was that we were really disappointed to concede the goal after so many chances,” he continued. “I had a couple that I could have done better with, but that’s how it goes, it’s football. Sometimes you’re doing well but then you concede. We managed to get ourselves back into the game and come out with a draw which is a positive.”

It’s six goals in 10 appearances now after arriving at Oakwell from Premier League Fulham, and Cauley wants that run to extend in a squad that he believes is full of quality.

“I’m pleased to be getting goals.” He said. “I knew if I was in a good position when it was crossed, I would fancy myself to score [against Portsmouth, at the weekend]. Thankfully it came in to me and I got my foot to it. We said in the dressing room that they are top of the league, they are flying, they’ve only lost two all season. I’m not disrespecting them [Portsmouth], but we battered them really, that shows our quality, if we keep that up we’ll fly up the table.”

Overall, since his move to the Reds, Woodrow is very open in admitting how much he is enjoying his football under Stendel’s leadership. The striker has forged a deadly partnership with Kieffer Moore in the spearhead of the attack wants the pairing to keep up their form over the Christmas period.

“I’m loving it here, it’s good to be playing regularly and I’ve settled in well after an injured start. I’ve found my feet and got amongst the goals, I hope the fans have taken to me, I’ve really liked playing here and I am enjoying it.

“He’s [Kieffer Moore] a slightly different striker to me, he’s a lot bigger and good in the air and looks to hold it up but we have found a way of working well together and both scoring goals, I hope that can continue.”
