Reaction | Cauley Woodrow on special celebrations

Cauley Woodrow’s first Premier League goal in almost a decade rescued what could prove to be a vital point in the fight for survival against Crystal Palace on Saturday.


The 29-year-old, whose only other top-flight goal also came against the Eagles when playing for Fulham on the final day of the 2013-14 campaign, silenced the Selhurst Park crowd with an inch-perfect glancing header in the 96th minute.

It sent the travelling Hatters into ecstasy, and asked about them singing ‘He’s one of our own’ in the celebrations when the final whistle blew seconds later, Woodrow replied: “It’s amazing. I love this club.

“I’ve got history here from when I was younger and I came back last summer and I haven’t played probably as much as I’d have wanted to, but I’ve always got a good attitude, I keep my head down and do as much as I can for the team and it was a really great moment.

“I’m really grateful that they did that at the end. I’m just thankful that I could send them home with a happy result.”

Woodrow also explained his special celebration immediately after netting his third goal of the season in all competitions, following a Carabao Cup strike against Gillingham back in August and the last-gasp winner in the FA Cup fourth round tie at Everton in January.

“My wife is pregnant and the baby is due on the 7th May, so she said to me ‘Next time you score, stick the ball up your top’,” smiled the striker.

“I scored against Everton and I forgot, so I was getting it in the earhole to be fair because I was thinking I’m not sure I’m going to score before the baby comes! But thankfully it came today and she’s text me already, so it’s all good.”
