Tammy Abraham said he was “lost for words” after we beat Bristol City to help clock up an eighth win on the spin.
Abraham led the way with the opener from the spot in the 2-1 victory, which ensured we matched a set of results we last produced in 1974/75 under Ron Saunders.
Conor Hourihane bagged the second and the margin could have been greater had it not been for the heroics of keeper Max O’Leary.
Abraham had to come off with 18 minutes remaining and admitted the closing moments left him tense on the bench.
But overall he was over the moon at the result.
On the winning run, he told Club TV: “It’s unbelievable. I’m lost for words right now.
“Obviously coming off for the closing stages, I was just there shaking on the bench watching the game.
“But we have a brilliant team. We dug deep. That’s what we keep doing. Eight games in a row is a massive achievement.
“We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game. But we were on the front foot and could have been more ahead. We had a lot of chances. But when it mattered, we took them.
“I despatched my penalty after missing the one the other night. Then Conor had a few chances and then thankfully he got one. It’s all about keep getting in the right place and that’s what he did.
“He kept going. The team kept going. And we got the win.
“We’re nearly there. We have to keep giving performances each game and treat every game like it’s our last.”
