Zohore delighted with 'massive' Cardiff win

11th February 2019, 16:43 by Tom McGarry

Kenneth Zohore believes his 90th-minute winner at Southampton on Saturday could prove a 'massive' moment in Cardiff's season.

The Danish striker has endured a tough campaign following Cardiff's promotion to the Premier League, as injury and a dip in form has limited him to just 10 top-flight appearances while he was heavily linked with a move away from the club during the January transfer window.

However, no such move materialised and he has returned to the Bluebirds fold over recent weeks, culminating in his first Premier League strike on Saturday.

Zohore was certainly delighted to score such an important goal in Cardiff's bid for survival, although he knows it is crucial they do not rest on their laurels.

"Scoring the goal felt good," Zohore told the club website. "Everybody knows that I've had a tough year with injuries and not playing so much, so for me to come on and get the winner was a big thing for me and the team.

"It's massive and the team played well after a tough week, as we all know. It was good to get the three points."

Cardiff have now won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time and Zohore has put their recent resurgence down to the team spirit within Neil Warnock's squad.

"We've always known we have it in us to get results, so it's just about keeping going," the 25-year-old added. "It's all about the team spirit and how we play as a team; it's not about the individuals."
