On loan left back James Husband spoke after the 1-1 draw with Gillingham on Saturday afternoon at Highbury Stadium.
Husband’s marvellous injury time free-kick cancelled out Tom Eaves’ late header in a mental last ten minutes at Highbury, earning Fleetwood a good point in the Sky Bet League One.
The left-back spoke about his first goal for the club, the character that the team showed to grind out a result, and about the remaining games of the season.
Husband spoke to the media after the game, and here are the best quotes.
On his free-kick and scoring his first goal…
“I was nice to score my first goal. I thought we were probably a little bit unlucky to be down in the game. I think that a draw at the end of it, considering the weather conditions and how the game panned out is a fair result at the end.”
On the match against Gillingham...
“To be fair, we actually played alright in the second half. The weather conditions didn’t help in the first half, but I think that we are just happy that we’ve managed to come from behind, salvage a point and show a bit of character.
“We would’ve liked to have had back-to-back wins to get going again but we managed to get a point in the end and spirits are a little bit higher than what they would have been if we obviously got beat, now we just pack up and move onto next week. We go again.”
“It was a terrific atmosphere, the fans pushed us through to the end to get the point. So thanks to all for coming.”
On the team showing great character…
“The manager has installed a ‘never say die’ attitude in us all. Since I’ve been here we’ve never jacked it, even when we were down at their place we probably should have got something out of it.
“He’s installed that character in us all that we know not to keep our heads down, when we are down.”
On the push for the play-offs…
“Of course it is achievable. Every single person in that dressing room thinks it’s achievable. Like I said, we’ve just got to move onto next week, go again and get the three points. Have a good week again in training, we are learning all the time, getting better and better.
“You can see out there with the way we are playing, we are getting more consistent. I know today the conditions weren’t perfect for it, but we managed to battle through and get the point.”
