Liverpool striker David Ngog says his winning goal against Leeds Utd in the Carling Cup will do his confidence the world of good as he goes chasing more first team opportunities.
Ngog’s second half strike was the only goal of the game as the Reds sunk the Yorkshire side 1-0 at Elland Road to progress to the fourth round of the competition.
Just a few days previously the young French forward had netted a winner for the Reserves against Manchester Utd Reserves.
Ngog said, “It was a very important goal for me for my confidence and because we won the game. I think I played okay. The intensity of the game made it difficult and I was very happy to score.
“Of course I know that I’m not going to play every game so when the coach gives me a chance, I want to do my best for the team and try to score.
“I know I have to be patient and all I can do is when I get a chance, try and take it and show the manager what I can do.
“I hope I have done that in this match and shown the manager my qualities and that I can be another possibility in attack.”
