Ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game, Steve Mounié spoke to #HTTV about taking confidence from his goal scoring record against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Town’s striker scored all of the Club’s goals against the Seagulls last season (three) bagging a brace at the John Smith’s Stadium and scoring a vital equaliser away from home.
When previewing the game, Steve hopes he has the same luck in front of goal that he had against them last season.
“Every season is different. Last season I had chances and I scored three goals, but this year everything is different.
“Hopefully I will have the same luck I had last season and if I can open my account against Brighton & HA, I’ll be very happy.”
The Benin international is still looking for his first Huddersfield Town goal of the season and explained how hard he is working to change that.
“As a striker you want to help your team every game by scoring goals. I will not say I’m happy about this situation because when I come back home, I think about that.
“Me, I want to score, I want to do my job and my job is scoring goals.
“I don’t do it at the minute, but I can say that the team is winning and getting points whilst I am on the pitch, so I will try to get confidence from that and hopefully the luck in front of goal will turn for me.”
Huddersfield Town supporters will remember Mounié passionate celebrations following his equaliser at the AMEX last season.
The striker told #HTTV what he was saying after he scored and described how much that goal meant to him.
“I remember at that moment it was very tight to stay up in the league and we were fighting against every team.
“I was very unhappy and angry that we conceded. So, when I scored this goal I just said, ‘we are going to stay up, we are going to stay up’ and I spoke in French, I remember because people say when you’re angry your native language comes back.
“So, I was speaking in French and I said to the fan of Brighton, ‘we are staying up, we will stay up. Don’t think we won’t fight until the end. We will stay up.’”
