James Husband: Great to be back out there

13 March 2018

James Husband says a point was the very least Norwich City deserved after they came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Barnsley on Tuesday night.

The Canaries had trailed at the interval to Oli McBurnie's volley late in the opening period, but responded by considerably upping their game after the restart as Josh Murphy's 72nd minute strike salvage a point.

"I thought we played very well in the second half," Husband told Norwich City TV.

"That's all credit to the boss. He changed the system very early on in the second half and it was one of our better performances.

"The first half was a typical Championship football game. Both teams were trying to get a feel for each other and we conceded a sloppy goal from our point of view.

"We needed a reaction from the other day, because our performance was below-par at Hull. It's a draw, but performance-wise in the second half we were very good."

It was Husband himself on laid on Murphy's leveller, making a valuable contribution on his first appearance in 2018.

"It's been a long time coming, getting an assist," he added.

"I've not played for a while so it was nice to get back out there and help the team. Jamal Lewis has been brilliant and I can't praise the kid enough.

"For someone his age to come and play in the Championship, people underestimate how hard it is. He's been terrific.

"Tonight he had a bit of a rest and I've been ready for a while. I enjoyed it."
