Omatsone Aluko is pleased to have overcome his injury worries and believes his recent run at Hill City continues as he looks to help the Tigers in their battle to escape relegation from the Barclays English Premier League.
Aluko has started the last four games and impressed with his performances, helping Steve Bruce’s team to six important points in the process.
The 26-year-old acknowledges the milestone which he infers bodes well for the club.
“I think this is the first time I’ve started four consecutive games since we got promoted, so it’s been great for me,” he was quoted as saying on the club’s official website,
The former Glasgow Rangers man added that confidence has returned to his game as a result of his ability to stay fit.
He also talked about Saturday’s dogfight with Burnley in the run-in to the Premiership season.
“It makes a difference in your performance. I feel fitter and more confident going into games and any striker will tell you that they need a run of games to get the confidence back.
“It’s been great to be training everyday and to be available for games has been good for me.
“I’ve enjoyed playing alongside Dame N’Doye and he’s added a lot to the team – his goals, his work-rate, his touch – it’s been a pleasure to play with him.
“We must continue to be very organised, focused and confident.
“It’s a game both teams will be looking at knowing they need a win and I think it will be a good game to watch.
“At this stage of the season, wins are pretty much vital and we don’t want to be dropping points now because there are only two more opportunities for us after this weekend. We want to try and get the job done as soon as we can.
“Burnley will give us a tough challenge because they’re fighting for the points as well. We know they work hard and are very organised but it’s a test we’re looking forward to.
“Three points for us would go a long way,” he said.
