Strong and Solid

Oniangue looking forward to trying to bounce back

Midfielder Prince Oniangue believes that following Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat at the DW Stadium, the game against Norwich City this weekend is the perfect opportunity for the side to bounce back.

Speaking after he netted his second league goal for the club, the Congolese midfielder said: “It is a big match at home. We will work on the strategies all week to make sure win this game.

“We need to be strong and need to be solid if we are to achieve our goals.

“We need to learn that quickly and we will.”

The affable 27-year-old slotted home the equaliser on Tuesday night from the edge of the area and he admitted that the goal is a boost of confidence.

“It is good for my confidence although it would be better for me not to score and for the team to win,” he added.

“I hope that in the next game (against Norwich), myself or another player will score and we stay can stay solid defensively and we can then win the match.

“We can then begin to build up step by step and match by match.”

After conceding late on on Tuesday night, Oniangue confirmed that there was a lot him and his team mates could learn from the game going into this weekend’s fixture.

“We conceded two goals, one was from a long ball over the top of our defenders, and I think we can learn a lot from that and improve.

“We had many chances in the first half and didn’t score more than the one goal.

“We have a match in a few days against a strong team so we need to keep our heads up for that.”
