BLACK­BURN striker Nathan Delfouneso in­sists his maiden goal for the club will be the first of many.

The 24-year-old was re­leased by Black­pool in May, but was given a oneyear deal by Gary Bowyer.

The for­mer As­ton Villa striker opened his ac­count in Tues­day’s Cap­i­tal One Cup de­feat to Shrews­bury, and Delfouneso hopes to prove Bowyer was right to take a chance on him.

“I wanted to get my first goal as early as pos­si­ble and I’m happy with that,” he said. “But it’s only a start. I want to score more now.

“I’m re­ally grate­ful with the op­por­tu­nity the gaffer has given me and I’ve got to re­pay him with goals.”
