Abiola Dauda tells Hearts fans to calm down

12 February 2016, 10:06Israel Ojoko

Edinburgh - Hearts striker Abiola Dauda, who scored a brace on Wednesday against Ross County in a 3-0 victory, has told fans to calm down as he tries to settle down after joining the club in January.

Dauda, who signed joined Hearts on transfer deadline day on loan from Vitesse Arnhem, stole the show for his injury-hit side when he scored twice in the last six minutes to secure the three points after Jamie Walker’s opener for Hearts shortly after half-time.

“I had not played at that intensity for quite a while,” he said.

“Before I came here I was only getting 20 minutes here and 15 minutes there. So for me to play in the derby was great. I was looking forward to it.

“I just had to do all I could and whenever the gas was finished, it was finished. It turned out the gas was finished after 60 minutes or so!

“I pushed myself a lot and now I had another 30 minutes,” he added. “I can feel myself getting better and ?better.

Dauda is also confident he will continue building form and fitness, with another outing to come against Partick Thistle this weekend. He then gets his second taste of an Edinburgh derby so soon into his Hearts career.

“I think the fitter I get the sharper I will be, and the more I will be able to play with my instinct,” he said. “In Holland you pass and pass and keep the ball and you can have a rest. But here you don’t have a lot of time but that suits me and my way of playing.”
