Ajayi sets sights on more goalscoring success

Semi Ajayi has his sights set on continuing his hot streak in front of goal having scored in all of Albion’s last three away games.

The towering defender was on target in Saturday’s derby victory over Wolves at Molineux, having also found the net in the Premier League draw at Anfield and against Blackpool in the Emirates FA Cup.

Semi is no stranger to scoring goals. The 27-year-old has bagged eight in 63 appearances for the Baggies since joining from Rotherham United in July 2019, where he netted 14 times in two-and-a-half seasons.

And Ajayi wants to keep chipping in with crucial strikes to help his side mount a charge up the table and out of the danger zone.

He said: “It was such a great feeling to score in a derby.

“You could see from my celebration how much I enjoyed it.

“We knew how much that game meant to the supporters and it was fantastic to reward them with three big points.

“I’m loving the fact I’m scoring goals at the moment. I’ve scored in my last three games away from home and I want to keep scoring.

“My job as a defender is to stop goals going in, but if I can chip in at the other end too then that can only help the team.
