Mustapha Bundu

Sheffield Wednesday (H) | Bundu's reaction

Fixture List

Deadline day summer signing Mustapha Bundu introduced himself to the Home Park faithful in emphatic fashion last night with a stunning first goal on his full debut for Argyle.

Bundu, a Sierra Leone international, joined the club from Anderlecht in August and has been eased in to Sky Bet Championship life with appearances off the bench to get him up to speed with the English game, after missing much of pre-season. 

He announced himself in spectacular fashion against Sheffield Wednesday though, with a stunning free-kick that rifled in off the underside of the crossbar in the 44th minute to give Argyle the lead. 

The frontman felt it was the perfect introduction to the Green Army, and described his nights work as 'perfect.'

"No, not a bad start at all for me! With a win as well, the perfect evening," he said. 

"I was excited, I found out yesterday that I was going to play. I went home, prepared myself and today I followed my usual routine. I have a routine that I do before every game, whether I am playing, on the bench, or not involved, just so I am always ready.

"The boys were talking to me, keeping me calm, and just telling me to go out and do my thing and I will be fine."

Bundu's goal brought Argyle to life after a lively start from the visiting side who dominated the opening proceedings and forced Steven Schumacher's men into mistakes. 

But, a moment of brilliance from the forward after begging Morgan Whittaker for the free-kick gave Argyle the crucial opening goal and set them on their way to a vital three points.

Bundu added: "I thought we started a bit slow, attacking wise. Sheffield Wednesday were really good for the first 30 minutes, but we came up with an important goal and then got another one straight after that which killed off their momentum.

"I had to beg Morgan for the free kick! Usually, he is on free kicks but at the last minute he let me take it. I was thankful for that and fortunately I scored. I'm really happy that he managed to get his goal as well, so everyone was a winner.

"I am delighted that my first goal came in front of the home crowd, there is no better feeling and m
ost importantly we got the win. We needed that win today, we’ve been going through a tough period of results so it was great to get the victory."

The forward hopes that this is just the start of his goalscoring run and concluded: "I’m hungry for more goals. We have a tough game against Ipswich on Saturday, they are a very good team. They haven’t lost in a long time, but we are coming, and we are looking forward to Saturday."
