Eddie Nketiah: To get a goal was good for my confidence

Forward on Salford City win.

Leeds United forward Eddie Nketiah spoke to LUTV following Tuesday’s Carabao Cup victory over Salford City.

Nketiah, who joined Leeds from Arsenal on transfer deadline day on a season-long loan deal made his debut at the Peninusla Stadium.

He capped his first outing with the opening goal of the game and Nketiah was delighted to get off the mark and help the Whites set up a second round clash with Stoke City at Elland Road.

“It’s nice to get the win most importantly and to get through to the next round, this competition is a great competition and we are going to take it seriously and work hard,” said Nketiah.

“To get a goal on my debut is also nice and good for my confidence, hopefully I can build on this performance and have better performances.

“It was a good time to score just before half time, giving us a bit of confidence going into the break and the game opened up a lot in the second half.

“I’ve been itching to play, I want to score in every game, that is my aim, but I know that’s not going to happen in every match, I just try to focus on playing well and working hard for the team first and I feel if I do that, the chances will come if I am in the right positions.

“We took our chances well, 3-0 is a good result away from home and I feel it was a good performance from the team overall.”
