Dom Hyam spoke of his delight after Coventry City secured a 2-0 win over Barnsley on Sunday at St. Andrew’s.
The Sky Blues started brightly and Hyam scored with a superb finish after being set up by Max Biamou, before Matt Godden struck to complete a valuable win for Mark Robins’s side.
Hyam reflected on his strike, and told the club’s website how he will find it hard to score a better goal during his career.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
It was only the defender’s fifth goal in over 120 appearances since joining in the summer of 2017 from non-league Aldershot Town.
And he was quick to emphasise that despite extending the gap to the relegation zone, City are still not safe yet, and it is imperative that they continue to pick up points in their last four matches.
“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’s not done yet, but we have given ourselves a really good chance,” he added.
“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.”
