JUDGEY | I KNEW IT WAS GOING IN

27 February 2021

"Nors and I had a conversation because he was looking at it, but I said I had a good feeling"

Alan Judge had done his homework before curling in a delightful free-kick against Doncaster Rovers at Portman Road this afternoon.

The Town midfielder opened the scoring when he found the far corner from almost 30 yards out in the first half.

Judgey and Doncaster's 'keeper, Ellery Balcombe, crossed paths when they both played for Brentford, and the 32-year-old said this came into his thoughts as he lined the set piece up.

"I've played with Ellery before at Brentford and I put a few past him in training," he said.

"He knew I usually went over the wall, so today I changed that.

"I knew it was going in when it left my foot, players know when they're going in I think.

"I'm always confident with free-kicks, although some recently haven't been the best, but I'm always confident I can hit the target and I hit today's one well.

"Nors [James Norwood] and I had a conversation because he was looking at it, but I said I had a good feeling and thankfully it paid off.

"It was a good win today and we caused them problems. We had to deal with some pressure but I thought we looked particularly dangerous on the counter attack."
