Longman: ‘It was a great result’

24 January 2022

Forward Ryan Longman was delighted to help the team secure back-to-back wins in the Championship by scoring his fourth goal of the season in the 1-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth.

The Tigers had to withstand a barrage of pressure in the opening 45 minutes at the Vitality Stadium, but made their defensive resilience count by scoring the winning goal with 13 minutes of normal time remaining.

“It was a great result against a top side,” said Longman.

“It was a difficult game. It was just a case of us waiting for that one chance and I was able to take it. I think they’re a top side so their fans have probably got high expectations. Coming up against us, maybe they thought they should be winning.

“We kept ourselves in the game and played well. We gave ourselves the best chance of winning. We’re just trying to climb up the table and push on.”

The 21-year-old was delighted to get himself back on the scoresheet after assisting both goals in the 2-0 win against Blackburn Rovers, and is hopeful that he can continue to help the team by contributing with both goals and assists.

“That’s what I was waiting for at this club - a chance to get a few games under my belt and really build my confidence up. Hopefully now that I’ve settled in, I can carry on scoring and assisting for the team.

“We went through a bit of a sticky patch but I think every team does in this league. We’ve come out stronger and got two really good results. We’ll be trying to make it a third (win in a row) on Saturday against Swansea.”
