Glen Johnson is hoping Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Stoke City can be the start of a winning run of form for the Reds.

Johnson scored the decisive goal on 85 minutes, bravely heading home the rebound after Rickie Lambert had struck the bar.

The goal brought an end to a run of six matches in all competitions without a win, and Johnson hopes it will be the start of better things to come.

“We’ve always been fighting hard together to try and put things right. So hopefully we can take some momentum from this and move forward.

“It’s always difficult when you’re not picking up results. We’re players who want to win and we want to win every week. So when you’re not picking up results it’s hard to take.

“The lads fought hard together from the beginning to get the result and I think it’s what we deserved. I think we would have been disappointed if we had not won.”

“It was a great header from Rickie,” Johnson said of his winner. “With a standing jump, you can’t usually get much power into it, but he showed his heading ability today.

“I read the flight of the ball and I could see that it was going to hit the crossbar. I was hoping that Begovic would miss the ball and it would bounce the way that it did.”
