BITTERSWEET FOR TOMMY

25 October 2014

Defender delighted to get on the scoresheet on his return to the side but frustrated Town didn't take all three points

Tommy Smith echoed the frustrations of the dressing-room, as Town let slip a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Huddersfield at Portman Road.

The New Zealand international netted the first goal of the afternoon, heading home a Teddy Bishop centre, before Christophe Berra had Blues two-up early in the second-half.

However Luke Chambers fouled Grant Holt with 20 minutes to go to give the Terriers a penalty, which Nahki Wells converted, before the striker added to his tally to earn a share of the spoils with eight minutes remaining.


“It’s very disappointing to draw after leading 2-0, we have to see the game out,” Tommy told the Club website.

“Huddersfield made a few changes which caused us problems. The gaffer is angry with us and rightly so, we need to stop dropping points.

“It’s a bit bittersweet for me in a way, as I’m delighted to score but ultimately disappointed not to have won the game.


“Ted Bishop put the ball in and I actually didn’t see the ball go in! But I was delighted to get on the scoresheet.

“I’m pleased to have been involved this week after missing out earlier in the season. It’s a squad game and I totally understand. I just make sure I’m ready when called upon, such as today.”
