Diedhiou pleased to double goal tally

Famara Diedhiou expressed his delight after scoring his second goal for the club in Tuesday night’s enthralling 3-3 draw at Wolves. 

City travelled to the Black Country in confident mood having secured maximum points at Reading three days earlier, and that buoyancy was evident when Lee Johnson’s side twice came from behind to secure a valuable point at Molineux.

An ever-present in league games since his summer arrival from Angers, Diedhiou - City’s record signing - insisted no doubt crossed his mind when he stepped up to convert his 58th minute penalty.


"I was only thinking about scoring,” the Senegalese striker told BCTV. "I took the ball and luckily I guessed the right way and found the bottom corner.


“I took penalties before in Angers and I enjoy taking them.


“I looked at the keeper to try and guess which way he would dive. He is a good goalkeeper but I stuck with my instinct and went to his left. 


“I am very excited to score my second goal for the club and I think we have a good group of players here, who played well, and it was a positive result.”

With his only other goal of the season to date coming in the opening day victory over Barnsley, Diedhiou declared the transformation from Ligue 1 to the Sky Bet Championship has been challenging, but feels he is now adapting to English football.


“It is very difficult to come to England from France, the game is completely different,” he added. “The game is a lot quicker and it is definitely more physical but I feel I am getting there. 


“I am really enjoying being involved and I feel lucky to be playing. 


"We have taken four points from two away games and I think that is a good return - we are all pleased.


“I am now looking forward to returning back to Ashton Gate on Saturday for the Derby game.”
