Danny Wel up for ti­tle scor­ing run

Midweek Sport - - SPORTS -

DANNY WEL­BECK hopes he has re­dis­cov­ered his goal-scor­ing form just in time for Manch­ester United’s ti­tle run-in.

Wel­beck, 21, bagged his first goal in 10 games as United de­stroyed Wolves 5-0 on Sun­day to move four points clear at the top of the ta­ble.

Wayne Rooney and Javier Her­nan­dez are also bang in form as the race for the Premier League en­ters the final stretch.

Wel­beck in­sists his two-month drought was not both­er­ing him, but ad­mits the time has come to start scor­ing on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

He said: “Be­fore the game at Wolves I thought I needed a goal. Thank­fully, it came.

“But you can’t let these things play on your mind. You just play your nor­mal game and, as long as the team keeps win­ning, that’s the main thing.

“It’s a big stage of the sea­son for us.”
