Benik Afobe has described scoring his first goal for Wolverhampton Wanderers since his January return as 'the best feeling'.

But the on-loan Bournemouth attacker got off the mark after, again, coming off the bench to wrap up the victory for Wolves.


"It's the best feeling," Afobe told Expre s & Star.

"Whether it's your first goal or your 100th goal, it's the best feeling.

"As a forward, you dream about scoring goals, Tony Oliva Jersey especially when it's at a club that you love, on the telly and a goal that killed Leeds off.

"We were under the cosh a little bit, we saw with the Norwich game we were 2-0 up and ending up drawing.

"The goal was for the fans, for the manager for having faith in me and Rod Carew Jersey for myself and my teammates.

"I probably should have scored two or three goals already. I was thinking about it too much I was getting into positions and thinking here it is, the first goal, and it didn't come.

"I thought to myself this week I've trained well and focused on doing things that come natural to me.

"When you're more natural with a lot of Zach Duke Jersey focus, it happens. The keeper came out and I didn't have to think twice. I finished it like the confident striker Phil Hughes Jersey I am and I believed I was going to score on Wednesday, whether I was going to play five minutes or 90, I knew I was going to score.

"We're human at the end of the day. The best players in the world go through a few games where they don't score and start mi sing chances that you never think Jorge Polanco Jersey they'd mi s.

"It's a relief to score my first goal but this is about the team."

Afobe - with 22 league strikes in his first stint that lasted for two season with Wolves - will be looking to increasing his tally when his table-topping side travel to Villa Park to take on third-placed Aston Villa in Saturday's English Championship game.
