Newcastle United forward Ayoze Perez has vowed to keep going after he struck the winner to hand the Magpies their first win of this season in the Premier League.
The Spaniard headed home in the 65th minutes as Rafa Benitez’s men brushed away the challenge of Watford to limp out of the relegation zone. Perez was dropped for being too sloppy in front of the goal and ultimately his goal rescued the Tyneside as they claimed a crucial victory to keep them in the hunt.
Watford had the most chances but their inability to find the target proved too hot to handle. Perez had to be brought in following an injury to Yoshinori Muto and the change could be a season defining one for the Magpies.
Perez said, “It’s been a couple of tough weeks, but the team stuck together.
“We’ve been working a lot to feel what we are feeling.
“This is a great feeling. We have to keep this winning feeling.
“We just stick together. We are all together. Even when we’re struggling, we have to be together.
“It gives us a lot of confidence. We have been working hard.”
“I’m really happy to score again. It’s a great feeling.
“I think it’s because of my personality. I don’t really talk too much, I don’t complain about anything. I just keep going, and at the end I think that sometimes pays off.”
