ALLOA striker Kris Renton admitted he was relieved to have finally scored his first goal for the club as he netted the winner against Forfar last Saturday.

The former Cowdenbeath man capped a fine performance when he popped up in the 94th minute to seal victory.

And now the striker is hoping to push on and add to his tally after breaking his duck.

Renton told Advertiser Sport: "I'm absolutely delighted to get my first goal. As soon as the ball fell to me I was confident that I'd score.

"Sometimes I like to smash those but I took my time and managed to tuck it away. I had to wait until the 94th minute, but it's not over until the fat lady sings.

"As a striker, you always want to score. That was my first for the club and although it took a bit longer to arrive than I would have liked, I think I can kick on now and get plenty more."

The Wasps were made to work hard for their victory, having trailed until the 86th minute, and Renton believes the game was typical of what the and his teammates will come up against this season.

He said: "It was a hard-fought game and it looked at one stage like we weren't going to get the win.

"It wasn't working for us so we had to change it up to try and create chances. We weren't doing that when we were passing the ball about, so instead we had to look for the diagonal ball and try to get something from that.

"In this league, you never get any easy games. Teams are in your face constantly, but we managed to show great character to come back from being 1-0 down with five or ten minutes to go. We are all obviously delighted with that."

Next up for Renton and his team-mates is a trip to face Ayr United, hotly tipped by many to lift the League One title, and the striker reckons the Wasps will go into that game on a high after their heroics against Forfar.

He added: "We'll be ready for Ayr. We will make sure we work hard in training and do our preparation properly.

"But going into the game off the back of a win makes it so much easier. It changes the mood totally so we will be really positive going into that one."
