INTERVIEW: Dom Hyam Barnsley Reaction

The defender scored a superb effort against the Tykes...

19 April 2021

Dom Hyam spoke of his delight after the Sky Blues secured a 2-0 victory over Barnsley yesterday afternoon at St Andrew’s.

City started brightly and Hyam scored with a superb finish after being set up by Max Biamou, before a Matty Godden effort then rounded off proceedings.

Hyam reflected on his strike and told how he will find it hard to score a goal better during his career!

He said: “I don’t even do that in training, and I don’t know where that comes from but I will take that all day and I doubt I will score a better goal than that in my career.

“It bounced nicely, and I thought I would hit it and I got a good connection and it flew in, I will do well to score a better goal than that.

“It was a real important goal and I’m just buzzing we got all three points.”

He emphasised that despite extending the gap at the bottom, City are still not yet safe, and it is imperative that they pick up a positive haul of points in their four remaining fixtures. 

“For us it was two must wins and the pressure we put on ourselves in these games are so important for our chances of survival and it is not done yet, but we have given ourselves a really good chance.

“If we accumulate a few more points now and we have got to do it in four tough games remaining.

“We still have a job to do ourselves and it is hugely important, two clean sheets and back-to-back wins so we have timed it right and confidence is flying.

“The Gaffer is always on about looking ahead instead of behind you and positively thinking we have got to look up instead of down.”

He alluded to the fact that the Championship has been a learning curve for himself and is hoping to take the momentum into the mid-week fixture against Stoke City.

He said: “It is not done until it is done and that is just professionalism and we know it is not done mathematically yet but we still have four massive games and we will give it our all in all of them.

“First season in the Championship for myself and I’m always learning and improving, you are never the finished article, delighted to play a lot of games, hopefully I can stay in the team and keep performing.

“Back it up now and we are flying and we still have got to perform and go and put them (Stoke) under pressure, team ethic and togetherness is the minimum really, the team spirit is up.”
