Newcastle United frontman Demba Ba was always confident he would score again.
The Senegal international, went 14 games without finding the back of the net after a prolific start to life on Tyneside.
With the arrival of fellow countryman, Papiss Cisse in January, much of Ba’s work late in the season was as a foil, for the clinical 27 year old. Toon Army boss, Alan Pardew also occasionally used the former West Ham striker on left-wing to help the team.
A delightful opener in the Magpies 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur saw Ba back among the goals. He told The Sun, he always had faith he’d start finding the net again, “I was ok going so long without scoring. Ask the other players. They will tell you I’m not just looking for goals.
“You just carry on doing your work and it will come back. I spent a lot of time after games watching them again, seeing what I had to do to change the bad stuff and that is why I am back scoring.”
