AHEAD of tomorrow’s clash with St Johnstone, Martyn Waghorn’s sole aim is to keep up both the team’s and his own good run of form.
Waghorn netted a double last week against Hamilton Accies and also laid claim to the only goal of the game in the win over Inverness on Christmas Eve – a result that means Gers have now won four games on the bounce.
Speaking to RangersTV.tv, Waghorn said: “We’re coming off the back of a good run of form over the festive period, and it’s important we keep that going and keep building momentum. For myself personally, it will be nice to keep the good run going.
“It’s been a long wait, and it’s nice to be back in the side scoring goals. For me personally, I am very pleased but it’s important the boys keep the run going and get the three points again.
“Four wins out of four has been a nice little period for us, but it’s all about building momentum in this league and as long as we keep doing that, and keep winning games, Auchenhowie is a nice place to be around.”
The Inverness game was something of a disappointment performance-wise for Gers, and Waghorn knows they will need to lift their levels against a team who have been tough opponents in the past for Gers.
He added: “It wasn’t the best performance by our standards, but it showed good character that we can win games when we are not playing our best. Over the busy schedule, games come thick and fast and it’s all about picking up wins.
“So it wasn’t the best performance, but we got three points, we moved on, and we are now building up to St Johnstone.
“They came here last season and posed us a lot of problems, and it was the same earlier this season. It’s going to be a tough game, they are playing some good stuff at the minute, and it’s important we build-on what we have been doing in the last few games and go in there with high-spirits and a lot of confidence as well.”
