Aaron: 'Let's keep it going!'

Aaron Lennon is determined to keep up the form that saw us beat Stoke City at The Lane last night.

The winger opened the scoring after just eight minutes, and that set us on our way to a crucial 3-1 victory over Tony Pulis' side.

And with another crunch game coming up against Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday, Aaron knows we must keep putting in similar performances if we want to make sure of Premier League safety any time soon.

The 21-year-old even believes a push into the higher reaches of the table is not out of the question if we build on last night.

"When it comes to playing teams around us, like Stoke, we've got to be winning those games, so I was pleased to get us off to a good start," he said.

"When we were looking at the table a couple of weeks ago, it wasn't nice to see us down in the bottom three, so to pull away from that is good. We've got to keep going now.

"But we're not out of it yet because it's so tight down there, and we have to keep it going, starting with Bolton on Saturday.

"If we keep going and put a run together, who knows? We might even be able to push for Europe."

Most of all, Aaron is pleased that the game plan worked against a Stoke side everyone knew would try to make it hard for us.

"We knew they were going to come at us but we were the home side and we had to go out there, get around them and play the way we can. That's what we did, especially in the first half."
