Emmanuel Buzzing After Win

4 October 2021

Josh Emmanuel says the team have to build on their 2-0 victory against Middlesbrough and not get carried away.

The defender came into the starting line-up in place of the suspended Lewie Coyle, as a Joe Lumley own goal and a composed finish by Mallik Wilks secured the Tigers their first home win of the season.

“It felt incredible,” said Emmanuel.

“It’s so good to be back playing in front of the fans and the atmosphere was crazy.

“I’m buzzing with the three points and clean sheet.

“I think hard work was the key to the win.

“We’ve been in every single game this season, but we were more clinical today.

“I’m grateful for Keane (Lewis-Potter) and Mallik (Wilks) taking their chances.

“We just need to build on this and not get carried away.”

Emmanuel was back in Grant McCann’s starting line-up in the Championship for the first time since the opening day of the season, and the right-back was pleased with his overall performance.

“I don’t think I did too badly,” Emmanuel added.

“I felt a bit rusty as you would expect.

“I was just grateful for the opportunity to play in front of the fans and to get to enjoy the atmosphere.

“Lewie (Coyle) is a good player.

“You just have to be patient at times.

“We just need to be ready when called upon to do a job.”
