Brentford striker Neal Maupay spoke of his relief after he ended his goal drought with a fortunate equaliser against Sunderland.
The Frenchman went nine games without finding the target after scoring three in four games in August.
His work-rate, though, was worthy of adding goals to his game but he finally had a slice of luck when Florian Jozefzoon's shot deflected into the net off him against the Black Cats.
Maupay said: “I'm very happy to score, even if it is not a fantastic goal. I'm happy for me and the team as we lost 3-1 at half-time.
“We took one point today but we have to do better on defending. We scored the first goal of the game and we can't give three goals away before half-time.
Maupay's barren run was down, in part, to bad luck but he also knows he spurned excellent goalscoring chances.
At times, it appeared his frustration had got the better of him on the pitch but he consistently showed a desire to shine for the Bees.
He added: “I was frustrated. I didn't score for a few games and I think I played quite well and helped the team but I was frustrated in not scoring.
“When you're a striker and miss an easy goal, you're frustrated. I'm always confident and there are many goals to come.”
Now Maupay is back on the goal trail, he believes he can go on a run of finding the net on a consistent basis once again.
He explained: “When you're a striker you can score three goals and then go on a run of not scoring. I feel I can go on a run now.
“I'm working hard in training and now I'm free as I scored today so I'm very happy and there are many goals to come.”
