Conor Sammon says he hopes his maiden goal for the Rams is ‘the first of many’ after the 25-year-old netted in the side’s 5-1 victory over Watford on Saturday.
The former Kilmarnock striker fired past Manuel Almunia in the 43rd minute, marking his first ever start at Pride Park Stadium with a goal.
Sammon, who completed his move from Premier League side Wigan Athletic last month, says he hopes his first goal in a Derby County shirt is a sign of things to come.
He told Rams Player: “I was just delighted to get my first goal for the club, especially in front of the home fans and I hope it is the first of many goals here.
“After the game, some of the players mentioned that scoring as many goals as that in a League game does not come round too often, so there are lots of positives to take from it.
“I think Frank (Fielding) and the back-four are a little bit frustrated to concede – but that is if you are being very picky.
“Overall we can take so many positives from the victory and even from the previous games. We looked like a really good side, one that was dangerous in attack as well as solid at the back so I think we have got a lot to look forward to hear at Derby.”
Meanwhile, Sammon admitted the players were looking forward to taking advantage of international break, as it will give the side an opportunity to recharge ahead of the Rams’ trip to Huddersfield Town on Saturday 15th September.
He added: “After a game like that, sometimes you want more matches thick and fast because there is not better feeling than coming into the dressing room following a win like that.
“If we had a game on Tuesday we would all be absolutely gunning for it again but the international break gives us an opportunity to relax a bit, do our training and make sure we are ready for Huddersfield in two weeks’ time, which will be another massive game.”
