Harry Cornick is back with a bang, scoring the vital winning goal in the away win against Swansea City last night!

It was a fantastic team goal that led to a stunning finish from Cornick, who netted his eighth goal of the season and after the match, said: "I’m not scoring tap-ins! I think the other day I saw Eli has scored the most goals in the six-yard box in the Championship, so if he’s tapping them in, and if I can be scoring from the edge of the box, then it’s a good combo!

"Delighted with the finish, delighted with the goal, but three points is the main thing. To come away from home at this place, they play good football and they’re hard to beat so it’s a massive credit to the team and how we’re playing at the minute."

The entirety of Town's squad are being used as they pushed into the top ten of the Sky Bet Championship, a feat more than deserved in Cornick's eyes.

"It’s a great team and it’s a great squad. All 25 of us work so hard in training and anyone of us on a Saturday or Tuesday that gets called-up, knows they’re going to play their bit. The unity in the team is great.

"We all work hard for each other and to be fair I’ve been injured for eight or nine weeks now, and when I came back the team have been playing so well, I can’t believe how well we’re playing at the minute.

"Sums it up with Henri Lansbury, he runs around kicking everyone. When you look back and see him sprinting around booting people, you think I better do a bit of work here. Everyone was excellent tonight, Sheasy in net making a few big saves, back three excellent – clean sheet away from home against Swansea. Not many teams come here and do that, which is huge for us."

After a couple of months sidelined through injury, the forward spoke of his frustration at the time which has now turned to delight being back on the pitch.

"It was no fun sitting in there watching the boys get results and Eli scoring as well! I’m getting there, it’s a long process. I have to thank a lot of people, Chris (Phillips), Si (Simon Parcell), and the whole of the staff. When I first got injured I was sad and I was upset. They were the ones I first went to with the rehab that got around me, made sure I was doing all my little bits fine and making sure I was working hard. Massive credit to those guys for getting me back fit.

"Then coming back to full fitness where I got to work outside, I’m getting close to training but not quite there with Elliot Plant in the gym who worked with me tirelessly to make me stronger. Jared Roberts-Smith said ‘make sure you give me a shoutout tonight!’, he’s been excellent with me.

"The whole team behind the scenes that you don’t see on a gameday or don’t hear about, they work so tirelessly for this club and they’re the reason we are where we are."
