Ludo On Goal Trail

1 May 2013

Midfielder Enjoying Goal-Scoring Form

Ludovic Sylvestre netted his fifth goal of the season on Saturday although none have been quite so dramatic as his last-minute winner against Derby County.

With The Seasiders seemingly heading for what would have been their tenth draw at Bloomfield Road this season, the Frenchman stepped up to send in a sublime volley.

The 29-year-old has scored three goals in April, all of which were arguably unstoppable and when asked where his goal-scoring form has come from he wasn't quite sure.

"I don't know!" joked Sylvestre. "I know that I can score goals, but ultimately it is down to a team effort. It's always nice to score, especially as it was an important goal because it made us mathematically safe.

"Whenever you score a goal it's a goal, but I think against Derby it was a special one because it was the last minute. I was happy to score and I'm happy for the club, the fans and everybody here.

"To be honest when I was playing I wasn't thinking about the pressure as all we wanted to do was to win and it is what we did so that is the most important thing. It wasn't easy but I think we deserved the victory."

Despite safety now secure, Sylvestre is not in the mood for entering 'holiday mode' just yet and sees Saturday's trip to the Reebok Stadium as a big game.

"We know that Bolton is still an important game because it is a derby match and we always want to play well in that type of game away from home. We have to have a good game and then we can perhaps relax after it."
