Winger on his late goal that secured victory at Hillsborough.

Albert Adomah scored his first ever professional free kick in City’s 3-2 victory against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. 

The winger revealed he was on free kick duty after winning a training ground competition the day before the fixture. 

Derek McInnes' men fought back twice before Adomah found the top corner from 20 yards out to secure the victory two minutes from time.   

The Ghanaian international is hoping City can now build on the victory and begin to climb the npower Championship. 

“I scored a couple of free kicks when I was playing non league football. The one I scored on Saturday was definitely the best one I’ve scored so far,” Adomah told Bristol City Player

“We had a free kick competition in training the day before the game and I beat Neil Danns in the final. 

“Steven Davies would have probably bullied me into letting him take it but luckily for me he was out injured. 

“I knew if I scored we would win the game so I was under a lot of pressure. 

“Tony Docherty told me to take any free kick around the box. I had one in the first half that was blocked by the wall but my second went straight in the top corner; you can’t get better than that. 

“It was a battle between two teams at the bottom of the table who needed the points. It was a tough game but we came out on top. 

“There are a lot of games left in the season and we have to make sure we build on this result.”
