Preston North End forward Scott Sinclair grabbed his most impressive goal yet in the Lilywhites’ superb 3-2 win over AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
And in his interview with iFollow PNE, the No.31 said it would certainly be up there in his list of all-time career goals.
“It’s up there!” He laughed. “As soon as it left my foot, I knew it was in. It was a great strike and I am just happy it went in.
“It was a great bit of skill from Seani and as soon as I took a touch, I had a look up and saw the ’keeper off his line and tried my luck and luckily it went in.”
Although it was a fantastic performance and win, some of the gloss was taken off it due to the Achilles injury suffered by Patrick Bauer.
“It is such a shame,” continued Scott. “It was a great three points, everyone played so well, but we are all just a little bit disappointed that Pat has gone off injured and it seems serious.
“He will have a scan in the next couple of days and we are just hoping that it is not too long for him.
“Pat has been great in recent games and it is sad that it happened today and I just hope it is not too long.”
Every member of the team played their part on the night and the former Chelsea and Manchester City man is now looking for consistency from the team: “You could see the way we played today; DJ set up two goals goals, Barky got another good finish and we now just need to be consistent and then we can climb the table.
“It is all about consistency in this league and hopefully we can put together a few results and climb the league.
“Everyone is chipping in with goals and they all contributed to the result and that is the main thing if we can keep on winning.
“There were strong performances all over the pitch from the whole team. They way we pressed; the way we created chances, you saw the counter-attack with the first goal – everyone had a strong performance and we have to take that confidence into our next goal with Wycombe at home and hopefully get our away form and take it to Deepdale.”
And, after six away goals already this season, he is looking to get off the mark at Deepdale against Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers this coming weekend.
“I just need to get my first home goal of the season, but at the same time I need to keep creating chances.
“We have got the quality in the team and the character in the dressing room to keep playing well,” he added.
