Zaha: No Pain, No Gain

15 March 2015

Wilfried Zaha continued through the pain to ensure he played his part in the team getting a 3-1 victory against Queens Park Rangers. The wing play of both Yannick Bolasie and Wilf received impressive reviews post match and even though he took a painful knock getting the opening goal, the first goalscorer only had eyes for finding the net.  

"I am not worried about the injury I picked up while scoring because the important thing is I got the goal for the team. As soon as Yannick got the ball across I knew I had to get into the box and take the chance. In the past week we have been working on getting into those positions so it was important I got there and thankfully took the chance.

"We are both capable of getting the crosses in but we both don't get into the box enough so that is my aim now to get in there and start getting some goals."

The points tally is now at a figure some are considering is enough for safety but that is not the view inside the camp. 

"There's a lot to be done so we'll take every game as it comes. I don't know how high we can go, but we're playing well. We've got to keep a steady head and look forward to the next one at Stoke City."

Wilf will now prepare for that game under the eyes of the medical team as he looks to recover from that collision with the post.

"I have just got to do the right thing and ice it because it will definitely hurt over the next couple of days, but no pain, no gain."
