Wickham Happy With Two Goal Showing

6 August 2016

Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham was pleased to get a brace in the Eagles' 3-1 win against Valencia.

The frontman netted with a neat volley before tucking away a penalty at the second attempt, and Mile Jedinak added a third to seal the win, and Wickham admitted it was good to be back on the pitch at Selhurst Park after the summer break.

Next week sees West Bromwich Albion head to Selhurst in the curtain raiser for Palace's Premier League campaign, and Wickham said he is aiming to continue his goalscoring form when it really matters.

"It's good to be back and get on the scoresheet today, and hopefully I'll continue that form in the league," he said post-match.

"It's also good to be back playing at Selhurst and get the win. I didn't expect there to be this many people but the fans came out as they always do and backed us, and I'm sure they're just as excited as us for the season.

"The league starts next week and we still have a lot to work on and stuff to build on but we're there or there abouts now."

Wickham spearheaded an impressing attack including Yannick Bolasie, Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend and the atack believes that that could prove to be very dangerous for a number of teams this season, adding: "They show their talents every day in training and I think if they gel and come together as everyone expects then we're going to have a very good attack."
