The 20-year-old former Manchester City man, who missed two guilt-edged chances in his side’s draw at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday, smashed home a Saido Berahino flick-on with 11 minutes remaining to spark Wednesday’s best period of the match at The Abbey Stadium.

“It was coming,” he said. “In the last game I had a couple of chances, so coming into this game I knew if I got as many chances again I would finish one of them off. I was pleased.

“I can’t describe that feeling, to be honest. It has been a long time coming but it’s about keeping striving, improving and training hard. Hopefully there are more to come.

Sheffield Wednesday youngster Fisayo Dele-Bashiru netted his first senior goal in the 1-1 draw at Cambridge United on Tuesday evening.

“In training, that;s what the gaffer wants from me; making forward runs and getting into the box. I think I’m implementing that into the games. Hopefully I keep getting chances and finishing them off.

“I feel like I’ve coped well. I feel like I’m getting my match fitness back now.”

On a game Wednesday will have been disappointed to have drawn, he said: “In the first half they were basically just playing long, so we had to adapt to that. In the second half we grew into the gae, created a lot of chances. We have to finish off those chances, we need to kill the game off.”
