Lalkovic on goalscoring start...MILAN Lalkovic celebrated his first League start for The Saddlers with a goal and an assist in our 3-1 opening day victory over Tranmere Rovers.
The on-loan Chelsea man showed some nice touches as he linked up well with Craig Westcarr who bagged a brace.
"I'm really pleased with the start both I and the team made," he said. "It was nice to get my name on the scoresheet and help the team get our first three points on the board.
"We can now push on from here. We have good players on the ball with a lot of movement. We press together and everyone talks to each other, which will stand us in good stead.
"Everyone is fighting for their place, but I am pleased with how my partnership with Craig Westcarr has started and long may it continue.
"I am the type of player who works hard; I like to press and will never give up.
"It was a sweet finish for my goal; I had a few other chances during the game which I couldn't take, but this will come as the season goes on. The important thing is to create the opportunities in the first place."
Lalkovic will be looking for more goals as we travel to Port Vale in the first round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
