Ghanaian striker Patrick Agyeman was thrilled with his goal that helped Stevenage beat Yeovil Town 6-0 in the npower League One match on Monday night.
The Glovers’ defence capitulated on the way to a 6-0 embarrassment against Stevenage, their worst loss on their own soil since a 7-1 FA Cup loss to Colchester United in 1958.
On 44 minutes Agyemang raced on to a hopeful long ball and beat Sam Walker prompting a long and heated post mortem between Richard Hinds and Paul Huntington.
The 31-year-old who joined the League one side on loan from Queens Park Rangers was happy with the output of his team.
“The goal was coming” and that his “fitness is getting better, the confidence is there now and even though I’m happy that I scored the result was coming,”
“The confidence within the team and the team spirit, we were always going to get this result soon.
The contribution of the man wasn’t limited to just the goal, and all over the field his performance was outstanding.
He revealed that the longer you have with a side the more you settle in.
“They’re getting to know my runs and I’m getting to know the different players now and the players are getting confident to start playing the ball on the ground and with the goals we’re scoring we’re getting more confident.
Agyeman explained what he was thinking during the goal, and he explained “The ball that he [Jamaal Lascelles] gave me, I was thinking ‘Wow, what a ball!’ I was thinking touch, I waited for it to come down and then I was waiting to see if the ‘keeper would come out, he didn’t come out and it gave me the angle and enough space just to slot it down the side.”
