Mixed emotions for City youngster after his debut senior goal

JAMAR Loza spoke of contrasting emotions after his first goal for the Club rescued Norwich City a dramatic point at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.

The Canaries seemed destined for defeat following James Vaughan's injury-time strike, only for the Jamaican international's smart turn and finish to level matters almost immediately after the restart.

Results elsewhere saw the gap to the automatic promotion places extend to five points, and after the game Loza told Norwich City TV: "I'm happy to score my first goal, but it's mixed emotions because I'm disappointed we didn't win.

"It's all a bit of a blur now, but I thought the referee was going to blow any second. We got the ball straight into their box, started causing confusion and it dropped to me.

"I stretched back to get it, took a shot and happily it went in. I was buzzing after the game, and was shaking because I couldn't believe it.

"The top ones are a little further away from us, so it's going to be difficult but I'm sure we'll bounce back at the weekend. I still think other teams are going to drop points, so it's up to us to win the rest of our games."

The City academy graduate credits the faith of manager Alex Neil and a succession of loan moves for his progression to the senior side, commenting: "Since he's come in, he's been really good with me and helped me a lot.

"Tonight he gave me the chance which I've been waiting for, so I'm happy. I'm used to playing against men in front of big crowds, especially with Under-21s games at Carrow Road.

"We have five or six thousand fans for those matches, so I'm used to the atmosphere now. Thankfully it helped us today."
