On loan striker Jonathan Obika talked to BBC Somerset reporter Pete Simson following his first ever league goal in a 1-0 win over Swindon Town on March 28th 2009.

PS: Jon, well played today. You must be delighted.

JO: Yes, that was my first league goal for Yeovil and so I'm delighted. I'm thankful to the gaffer and Jonesy for giving me that chance.

PS: Terry Skiverton said that was your second goal after the one you scored last week (against MK Dons, which was ruled out for offside).

JO: Yes, although if it is offside, it's offside. I'm just glad to get my first league goal.

PS: It was a very composed finish and I guess you've shown the Glovers fans what you can do now. Presumably you'll be hoping to play some more before the end of the season.

JO: Obviously yes. I feel in good shape and I just hope the gaffer keeps believing in me and that I keep putting in the good performances.

PS: What about Gavin Tomlin? You seem to be striking up a good understanding with him, and he is a very good fluent footballer.

JO: Yes definitely. Gavin is great and in training he produces some amazing things. I can also learn off that. We're linking up well and so it does look good.

PS: Andros Townsend played very well again and got Man of the Match. Are you slightly miffed about that?

JO: No, I thought he was amazing today. He gave their right back a lot of trouble so I'm definitely very happy for him.

PS: When I first met you, you said that playing off Andros and Danny who are guys you know from Tottenham would help you. It certainly seems to be proving that way on the pitch.

JO: Yes definitely, because I've spent almost my whole life with them in the Spurs youth team. So all we are doing is knowing where each other are. It's great to be along side them. But the Yeovil players are fantastic as well.

PS: It was a massive three points, given the position Yeovil Town were in before this game.

JO: Yes, we need to keep being positive and keep grinding out these results.

PS: Will you be hoping that Harry Redknapp has been watching or will at least give Terry Skiverton a call?

JO: Yes, hopefully Harry Redknapp will be looking out for us. So all I can do is be positive and keep going.
