Hugill post-Forest | We couldn’t be prouder
After a Man of the Match performance in the Bluebirds’ victory over Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon, new recruit Jordan Hugill spoke to the press to discuss the result.
Having signed on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season, the striker made a dream start as a Bluebird, with his early effort, along with Isaak Davies’ second-half goal, enough to secure a vital three points.
Commenting on his debut goal, Hugill expressed his delight after being introduced to the City faithful for the first time.
“I don’t think it could have gone any better!" he said. "Obviously, the win, a great performance and to top it off with a goal.
"To get off to the start that we did couldn't have gone much better, but the performance was the most pleasing thing. I’ll be honest, there were a lot of lads who left everything on that pitch, so we couldn’t be prouder as a team."
With the signing announced ahead of our clash with the Reds, the striker was found in space just six minutes into the contest and showed his quality to produce a low finish with composure.
“I just tried to keep it down and get it across the goal,” he expressed. “It was a little bit scuffy, but they go in and it’s just nice to get scoring again and get that confidence back up.
"After not playing for a long time, I don't think I could have been much lower. Things weren't working out for me, so to get the goal was a lot of relief.
"It’s not been the best of times recently, but I’m happy now that I’m here and to get off to this start, it’s brilliant.”
With the January signings of Tommy Doyle, Cody Drameh and Alfie Doughty, along with Ryan Wintle and Max Watters being recalled from loan spells, our newest recruit expressed his opinion on the quality and depth within the City squad.
“We’ve got enough lads in there, enough quality to do what we do and produce like we’ve just produced there. I never doubted that, which is why I came to the Club.
“Today was massive, absolutely massive. It’s a credit to all the lads in there, who’ve worked hard and put a shift in today."
He concluded: “I’m a fighter myself and the lads here have got more than enough to produce performances like that again.”
