Great To Be Back - Abraham

Tammy Abraham admits he found it tough to watch from afar as City battled for Sky Bet Championship survival.

The on-loan Chelsea forward sustained a thigh injury at Leeds United on February 14th and only returned to the first-team fold at Wigan on Saturday.

City’s 21-goal top scorer says the three and a half weeks he spent back at Chelsea’s Cobham training complex were extremely tough.

He told Bristol City Player HD: “I’ve been back at Chelsea and had to watch from afar how the boys have been doing.

“It felt longer than just a few weeks to be honest and I just couldn’t wait to get back and get out there to help the boys.”

That’s exactly what England Under-21 international Abraham did by completing 90 minutes on his return as City overcame relegation rivals Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

Aden Flint’s scrappy 88th-minute goal earned all three points and briefly lifted the team out of the relegation zone ahead of Friday night’s televised clash with Huddersfield Town.

“It was a massive win for the team,” said Abraham. “We knew what we needed to do and went all out for three points.

“There’s no better feeling than getting the three points and hopefully we can just kick on from here.

“The hunger is there in the dressing room. We’ll continue to give our all to fight and stay in the Championship.”
