Diédhiou targeting more goals

Famara Diédhiou is looking to build on his impressive comeback from suspension.

The Senegal striker has scored two goals in his last three appearances, after returning to the first-team following his six-game ban.

He netted in City’s convincing 4-1 home victory over Sheffield United, before a spectacular curled effort on Tuesday night at West Brom.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Wigan later today (Friday, 7.45pm kick-off), the City number nine believes there is more to come.

Diédhiou told bcfc.co.uk: “I’m really happy to be playing again since my six-game ban and it’s a pleasure. I want to be playing more games and to score more goal to help the team to get more points.

“I think for a striker it is normal to get more goals. I want to get better, to help the team. I have scored two goals in three games but I want more.”

WATCH: PRE-MATCH INTERVIEW

City fell to a 4-2 defeat when on the road to the Baggies earlier in the week, but tonight’s trip to the DW Stadium allows the focus to shift quickly. Head coach Lee Johnson has already spoken of how well preparation has gone, with his side working hard at Manchester United’s former training ground, The Cliff, this week.

“It was disappointing but there were positive things because we scored two goals in the second half,” Diédhiou said. “But they were too late because we conceded three goals in the first half so it was not easy to come back but we are ready to go into our next game.

“It won’t be easy because Wigan are a strong team but we are ready to get better than we were against West Brom, we are ready to play again.”

Wigan v City will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event. Fans still planning to make the trip to Wigan can buy tickets via the City Supporter Services until 10am. Call on 0117 963 0600 or purchase your tickets online. Alternatively, supporters can pay on the night.
