Ogbonna heads to OT for first time

Angelo_Ogbonna_BGR-ITA_2012Happy-to-be-back Angelo Ogbonna admits the Irons should have had the game against West Brom won by half time.

The big Italian has waited for his chance to return to the team on after injury and said: ” “I am very happy for that. I waited for my chance, it has come and I have to take my opportunity and try and keep my place in the team.

“I am happy with my performance, but not just mine, everybody played a really good game, we had a good shape, so I am a little disappointed with the result.

But he admitted to London24.com: “We had to close the match out in the first half and score more goal. In the second half, I thought we were good too, but we were unlucky.

“If Diafra doesn’t get injured then maybe he scores, and we had lots of opportunities – Victor Moses, Andy Carroll, Cheikhou Kouyate and Sakho as well, but we have to forget it now and look forward to the next game at Old Trafford.

“It is my first time there, but I don’t want to talk about it too much, but we just have to relax for a day and then start to prepare for the match against Manchester United.

“We need the support of not only all the team, but also the fans. We have another chance to do better in the future and we want to take that.”
