Gnahoua doesn't score easy goals

13 August 2022

Arthur Gnahoua says he finds it hard to score easy goals after another blockbuster for the Shrimps.

His left-footed thunderbolt gave Morecambe the lead in the 32nd minute of the game, and the French-born winger says he saw a gap in the defence and just went for it. 

“At first I thought I was going to pass it across, but then I saw a little gap, so I just went to my left and struck the ball,” said Gnahoua. 

“It is always nice to score a goal, obviously we had a lot of chances in the first-half and if we would have took them it would have made the game a lot easier. 

“I find it hard to score simple goals but always seem to score some of the harder ones, but it is good to get on the scoresheet again and hopefully I can kick on from here.”

The Shrimps were pegged back with seven minutes to go as Danny Andrew’s effort found the top-corner of Connor Ripley’s goal, and Gnahoua says the team's first league win of the season is coming. 

“League One is a difficult league, we have just got to keep our heads up and I am sure that our first win is coming, we were close to it today which is pleasing,” he added. 

“We are getting better chemistry, we have added some new players who have settled in well and we’re getting close to firing on all cylinders. 

“It is always nice to play against your old team [Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night], we just have to go there, give it our best shot and make sure we come away with all three points."
