Reading's Noel Hunt is delighted with his winning goal at Derby County and claims he always knew he would come good.
Hunt hit the net for the first time since November in the Royals' 1-0 win at Pride Park.
And, with Reading having also beaten Coventry on Saturday, they have the chance to make it three wins inside a week against Burnley on Friday evening.
The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international always felt his goal was just around the corner.
"I always come good this side of Christmas," Hunt told the Reading Post.
"We're on for a perfect week. I don't want to jinx that, but we just need to work hard and fight for another win.
Worth the wait
"It was worth the wait for my goal. The last couple of games I have started to get chances. It's just about shaking the rustiness off and hitting the net. It was a great ball in by Jimmy (Kebe) and I met it quite well.
"It was nice to see it hit the back of the net. I'm looking forward to seeing it back.
"I am impatient, but it's more about the team than me. The manager said that he believed in me, left me on the field and I'm glad to repay him."
Hunt also identified the arrival of Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts as a key boost for the Royals and is already enjoying their partnership.
"We've been linking up well together in and around the box," he added. "He is a fantastic player and something that we have really needed.
"I'm learning off him every day. He has that aura about him and you just want to do what he does."
