Winger delighted to be back in the fold
Adam Hammill’s return to the starting line-up was a timely one as he helped the Terriers to their first win in five matches.
Hammill had missed the last two games through injury, ending his ever present run in the side, but he was happy to be back fit.
Speaking to htafc.com, he said: “I was delighted to make a winning return.
“We played really well in difficult conditions and took the chance we had. Clayton has put it away superbly and we now want to continue our consistency on home soil and push up the league.
“We are paid to deal with the circumstances and I think we adjusted to them well. Wigan plays a similar style of football to us, but I think we got the better of the conditions and used them to our advantage. Ollie (Norwood) was hitting the ball from 30 yards out and causing plenty of problems.
“It was a very good win for us, especially when you consider the success Wigan have enjoyed under Uwe Rosler.”
Hammill had to sit out as Town lost at Bournemouth and Leeds, but was pleased to be back so quickly.
“It was tough to sit out,” he admitted. “It was a poor tackle committed on me and one that was unnecessary. If it was an inch lower it could have caused me a lot more damage. In some ways it is a blessing that I am back so soon.
“I hate missing games; there is nothing worse than being on the touchline, especially when the team is losing. All you want to do is help the lads.”
Looking ahead to Forest, the winger felt it was another good opportunity for the team to continue pushing up the league: “They are on an excellent run and a team that will expect to be in the Play-Offs and pushing for promotion. If we want to reach the Play-Offs we have to beat teams like Forest.”
