Villa striker claims 9th goal
Gabby Agbonlahor has today insisted that the goal scored against Wigan was 'definitely my goal.'
Gabby, who is now on 9 goals in total this season (equal in the Prem with Gareth Barry on 8), said:
'It's definitely my goal. Patrik Berger crossed the ball from the left and I got a little touch on it. I wouldn't be a striker if I didn't claim it, but I got the touch and it sneaked over the line.'
'I didn't really set myself a target for goals this season - I didn't think that was right in my first full season - but if I could get ten goals, that would definitely be a good return.'
And Martin O'Neill added: 'Gabby is claiming the goal - he got the final touch on the ball, so it's his goal and I'm delighted for him. What a terrific few days for him. What with scoring in three successive games and getting a new contract, he should buy me a Lottery ticket next!'
Gabby has made 32 starts this season and had one appearance from the bench.
