Midfielder delighted to net first Town goal although admits he didn't know too much about the strike as Blues all but secure safety with a point against the Owls

Jay Tabb was delighted to net his first goal in a Town shirt but admits he knew nothing about it!

The midfielder struck after 12 minutes to fire Blues in front at Hillsborough, before Leroy Lita hit back midway through the second-half to ensure the game ended in a stalemate.

It represented a first goal for Blues, and a first goal in over five years for the midfielder, with his last strike coming way back in 2008 as he scored for Coventry.

The Reading loanee felt the draw was a fair result and insists Blues will be looking to finish the season on a high with two more victories.

“I didn’t know too much about it as the ball just came off my knee but I’ll certainly take it!” Tabby told the Club website.

“It was my first goal since playing for Coventry in 2008 and I know that Carlos (Edwards) has a long throw, so I was keen to get under the flight of the ball and try and get on the end of it.

“In fact I was watching the videos of some recent games and I was amazed at the amount of times the ball drops in the box and people are stuck on their heels. If they take a chance then they will probably get to the ball, so I decided to gamble and thankfully it landed my way.

“The gaffer told me to keep getting myself into the box and that I might get a goal and luckily it’s gone that way for me today.

“I think on the face of it a draw was probably the right result. We should be safe now but as professionals we will still be going out to win the next two games and finish the season strongly.”
