Kick start for Chris

20 November 2013

Chris Porter is delighted to be back on the goal trail at Bramall Lane, but insists they count for little in a losing side.

The striker netted his first Lane goal of the season at the weekend, hot on the heels of scoring the FA Cup victory at Colchester United the previous week.

Speaking after the 2-1 defeat to Gillingham, Porter remarked: "I am pleased with aspects of my own performance, including the goal, but it counts for little when the team loses.

"We created chances and should have scored more goals, but at the other end we can't afford to be giving away opportunities like we did because we will get punished.

"Gillingham had two chances and scored two goals, we must tighten up defensively or we will continue to put ourselves under pressure."

Of his goal, the striker added: "Simon Lappin has great left foot and his delivery is of a consistently high standard, thankfully I lost my marker and couldn't really miss with my header.

"I am pleased to have got a couple of goals since returning from Chesterfield and, hopefully, they will kick start my season."
