Winger delighted with goal that showcased his ability
Adam Hammill was delighted to show the home fans what he’s capable of with his injury time equaliser against Birmingham City today.
The winger emerged from the bench and showed fantastic composure to net a left footed curler deep into the four minutes of time added on – something he felt the Terriers warranted from the game overall.
“I think we dug in deep and kept grafting. Their ‘keeper made a great few saves towards the end, but our pressure eventually paid off,” Adam told htafc.com.
“I think the tension in the ground affected us a little bit towards the end; players started rushing with the final pass and hitting a few balls out of play. It was just a case of staying calm and collected and doing the right things at the right time. Towards the end that paid off with the goal.
“We’re a team and we had to trust each other and fight to the bitter end. We’re delighted to get the point with the last gasp goal, but before the game we wanted to take three points to start to kick on and push up the table. You have to be happy with the point after that though.
“Personally I’m delighted to get on the score-sheet in front of the home fans and finally show them what I can do.”
Hammill’s initial loan spell from Wolves is due to end this weekend but, as Manager Simon Grayson explained in his post-match comments, Adam’s future is still uncertain
“I’m not sure where my future lies, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. If it turns out I can come back I’ll be more than happy, but there is a new Manager at Wolves and the ball is not in my court. I’ll be happy to do either, but I’m taking things day by day.”
Regardless of what transpires over the next few days, Hammill paid tribute to the Club after it stuck by him through a personal issue back in October.
“I feel like I’ve been given a second chance in life with everything that happened here and I would like to offer my thanks to the whole of Huddersfield Town Football Club for the way they’ve dealt with my situation. I owe a lot of gratitude to the Chairman, the staff and the fans for the faith they’ve shown in me. Today’s goal was just me paying them back a little bit.
“I’ve learned from my mistakes and I’ve put that behind me. I made a severe mistake, but all I can do now is get my head down, work hard and get people to notice my football. I just want to move forward with my life and I’m 100% committed to playing football.”
