Nigerian defender Ola Aina says he wants to score more goals for Hull City after netting against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.

Aina revealed that it was special to score his first goal for the club as it secured a spot in the fourth round after winning 1-0 this past Saturday.

The win was the Tigers’ second away from the KCOM Stadium in 14 months and Aina is delighted, saying he wants to do well in the cup competition.

Following their win, Hull will now face Nottingham Forest in the fourth round of the competition following the draw on Monday.

“It was an exciting feeling (scoring his first goal),” Aina told Hull’s official website.

“I’d always wondered when it was going to come and happily it came as the winning goal.

“I wouldn’t mind a cup run. Obviously the league is our main priority but to have a good cup run I don’t think you’d hear anyone complaining.

“There’s some magic in this competition as everyone knows and if we get on a decent run that would be just as good as anything this season.

“We know we haven’t made a great start to this season so to have a cup run would boost the fans and give them something to cheer about.

“I’m sure we’ll be ready for anyone in the next round. We have a good bunch of lads here who are confident and have belief in our ability as a group.”
