van Dijk praises Queensland teammates

Sergio van Dijk has thanked his teammates up the field for helping him get back into his recent goal scoring touch.

The Dutchman has scored five times in his last three games to go third on the goal scorers table but he hasn't taken all the glory, preferring to thank those that get the ball to him.

"It's not that I learnt how to score in the last six weeks," he said.

"It's just a feeling and now I have that feeling.

"Even the top strikers who play in the highest leagues have those phases, so it's not like it's not normal but I'm happy that I'm back now.

"Without good set-up play I can't score," he added.

"I'm only the last phase of the whole attack.

"Everyone on the whole pitch has influence on one goal and I'm only the last station who can finish it so all credits to them.

"The last weeks we've been playing some good football on the wings and that suits me."
