Josh Windass is off the mark in blue and white and determined to add to his tally as Latics travel up the Sky Bet Championship table.

  • Reaction: Josh Windass reflects on Latics' 2-1 victory over Hull City.
  • Windass netted his first goal for the club since signing from Rangers FC this summer.
  • The forward's goal was Latics' second on the night and crucial in sealing all three points.

Speaking to iFollow Latics after scoring the goal that proved to be a match winner in our 2-1 victory over Hull City at the DW Stadium, Josh Windass was delighted to get off the mark in blue and white.

"It's always a good feeling to score. That's what I was brought into this football club to do, to get goals and help us in this league, so hopefully this is the first of many.

"I'd like to think I'd have got off the mark a bit earlier than four games in, but I'm glad it's come now and hopefully I can get myself on a bit of a run.

"There are very good players here, so it's always nice to be selected for a run of games and get used to the roles of all your team mates."

On the goal itself, Windass said he knew exactly where to be:

"It got set back to Evo (Lee Evans) and I know he likes to find the back post so I gambled on where the cross was going to go and luckily it came over. It was a bit like that one at Aston Villa away and I missed that chance, but you've got to be there in those positions and knowing his game I know I'll get opportunities."

On the boost the victory gives the squad off the back of the 2-0 defeat to Brentford FC and ahead of a second home game this week against Bristol City on Friday, Windass added:

"We were deserved losers at the weekend, so it was important for us to get the win against Hull to put that right for the fans. It's taken us back up towards the top end of the league and hopefully we can carry this form on and get a win on Friday against Bristol City.

"We've been good at home since I arrived at the club and the lads did really well all season last season. We want to carry that on because it allows us to start building on our results away from home if we can rely on winning games at the DW.

"We wanted a better start to the week if you class Saturday as the start of it, but we'll be looking to build on beating Hull by beating Bristol City to erase the loss against Brentford from our minds."
