Football: Fowler Delighted to Be Back in the Winning Habit


Byline: BY DAVID PRIOR Daily Post Staff

ROBBIE FOWLER believes Saturday's victory at Wigan "bodes well" for the coming clashes against Arsenal, Manchester United and Benfica.

Liverpool brought their two-game losing run to an end with a 1-0 win at the JJB Stadium, courtesy of a rare non-headed Sami Hyypia effort.

Fowler, who made his first start in Liverpool colours since November 2001, looked sharp before being replaced just after the hour mark. And with Tuesday's Premiership clash against Arsenal, Saturday's FA Cup fifth round against Manchester United and next week's Champions League encounter with Benfica all awaiting, the striker claims the side have been handed a timely shot of confidence.

He said: "The main thing was getting three points.We know we have been on a bad run, so a clean sheet and winning the game was vitally important. Thankfully we got it.

"With a run like we've had, and the confidence not being brilliant, coming to this place on a difficult pitch and getting a result bodes well for the coming games."

Despite the maximum haul on Saturday, Hyypia's goal ensured the 2006 drought for Liverpool's strikeforce goes on.

Fowler, however, was relatively satisfied with his own performance as he continues to strive for full match fitness.

He added: "I think I did all right. I've not played a lot at all, but I thought I contributed and felt good. Obviously I was always going to tire, but for the time I was on I thought I contributed.

"I did feel good and hopefully I've not let anyone down. I'm confident in what I can do, if I continue to do what I have been doing since I came back here the second time, well I'm going in the right direction.

"I've got to listen to the manager, but I'm on the right tracks so far. I only found out I was playing just over an hour before the kick-off. Really the manager's got no right to put me in, because it's been a long time since I've played, all I can do is train and hope those chances come."

Fowler admitted that his arrival may have upped the "pressure" on misfiring fellow attackers Fernando Morientes, Peter Crouch and Djibril Cisse.

He added: "I can only speak for myself, if others feel the pressure so be it, but I don't think so. In terms of scoring goals, maybe we haven't been scoring as many as we would have liked, but when you're part of a winning team that softens the blow a bit. …
