Josh Umerah was overjoyed to score his first ever senior goal, in what will be the first of many for the young loanee.

Umerah, on loan from Charlton, finished smartly in the second half to make it 2-0 before Nick Freeman added a third.

Umerah hailed the help of his team-mates for his development and wants to continue his upward curve.

He said: "I turned on it and I just wanted to get some contact and it was a great feeling for me to get that goal.

"I felt like it was a relief for the team as well, coming on at 1-0 up and he could have gone either way at that point so for myself and team it was a relief to go further ahead and I really enjoyed the moment.

"The team are buzzing and everyone's morale is up. It isn't easy in this league and everyone is happy."

The likes of Adebayo Akinfenwa are constantly talking to Umerah and helping his progression and the young striker said all the help his older peers are giving him is being taken on board.

He added: "The competition here is healthy and everyone is scoring. Everyone is fighting and we all help each other and we are all happy for each other whoever scores.

"I have three top strikers who help me. Bayo, Tys and Craig talk to me everyday about how I can get goals and the movement and it paid off here and it's great to be able to speak to them and learn."

Freeman scored an absolute belter for the third, rifling home from a tight angle.

The young winger has grown in stature in the past few months and was delighted to have grabbed his second goal of the season.

He said: "I tracked the player down and he tried shielding it out and managed to nick, looked up and smashed it. It was lucky it went in as there were three in the box so it was good to see it go in and good to get the points.

"The Luton loss really hurt us and we have bounced back and we have a lot of togetherness.

"It is a squad game and we push each other on."
