'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dunk Delighted, Stockdale Claims An Assist

Defender Lewis Dunk has said he couldn't have been more delighted with his brace against Charlton, and goalkeeper David Stockdale is trying to claim an assist for one of the goals.

Starting with goal scoring hero Dunk, he told the Official Site that all the credit had to go to new manager Sami Hyypia for his influence on him in training.

Surprisingly Dunk is now our leading scorer with a return of three goals so far this campaign, and he explained.

'When I saw him get appointed I was exited to learn from him. He's done it at the top level in the Champions League final, I'm learning off him every day and he's been really helpful.'

Dunk goes on to say that obviously his position means his focus is to always defend, but he knows from set pieces and the like it's also a side element of his job to be a goal threat and chip in with a few goals every season, so he's been pleased to be able to do that so far this campaign and it's obviously something he hopes he can add as a regular string to his bow moving forward.

'It's just being in the right place at the right time, Gordon and I work off each other. One of us goes one time, and the other the next and hopefully one of us gets a chance and it's working at the moment.'

As for the game, Dunk was obviously disappointed to see the team concede twice, but obviously pleased with the fight back and his goals, but he did admit it was slightly frustrating as the team felt they deserved more come full time.

The point was very welcome, but he believes they maybe should've nicked all three in the end but we didn't take the chances we created.

Joking about Stockdale's involvement, he added.

'Keepers always cause chaos when they go up. They don't know what they're doing and they're just running around. I thought he was going to score but luckily he didn't, as we wouldn't have heard the last of it.'

Well speaking in his own interview to the official site, it doesn't appear that they have heard the last of it even though he didn't score.

'I was more thinking about how we would celebrate if I scored. I got a little touch on the ball, but it was more about causing havoc than anything else as we deserved something from the game.'

Stockdale goes on to say it was frustrating because he feels they only really had two shots that counted, and unfortunately for us, both of them went in but that's just a reminder for everyone that anything less than 100% will get punished, and defensively we always need to 'pull together' in the right manner and defend properly.
