Hull winner was greatest feeling - Brownhill

Josh Brownhill enjoyed his greatest goalscoring feeling with his last-gasp winner at the KCOM Stadium.

City had been staring at a 2-0 defeat against the struggling Tigers on Saturday, but three goals in the last 20 minutes flipped the game on its head.

Close-range finishes from Aden Flint and Bobby Reid cancelled out the home side's advantage before Brownhill's piledriver from distance with just minutes remaining.

City head coach Lee Johnson said his side showed "character and heart" to come back from behind, while versatile midfielder Brownhill says the squad always believed a win was possible.

WE ARE A SPECIAL TEAM

The 21-year-old told BCTV: "All I can remember was scrapping for the ball, near enough on the floor.  [Jamie] Paterson and I were trying to get it but I managed to squeeze in and take it off Pato. All I could see was the goal in front of me so I thought why not hit it and thankfully it went in.

"It's definitely up there, for the feeling of winning so late on. It was the best feeling I've had scoring a goal. It means a lot to the team to come back in the way that we did. We are a special team coming back like that."

The result means Hull City, who were only in the Premier League last year, now have only two points from their last six games and are just four points from the relegation zone.

WHAT HE SAID

"We are a special team coming back like that."

Josh Brownhill

When asked if he expected a tough fight from Hull on Saturday, Brownhill said: "Of course, we've been there ourselves and it's tough but you know that every game they are going to give it a go and they did.

"In the first half we didn't perform like we usually do but in the second half we dug deep, used our strengths and it paid off in the end. We knew once we'd get the first goal we could kick on and win and we did.

The feeling on the pitch was that we could go on and win this, especially when we got that second goal. Everyone was bigging themselves up and thankfully we did.

HALF-TIME INSPIRATION

"He (Johnson) said that we needed to perform better, it's not like us. We were giving the ball away, we were sloppy and we needed to tidy it up. In the second half we looked after the ball a little more, we found the passing movement for everybody and we took our chances.

"We didn't create many in the first half but in the second half I thought we did that.

WE ALL LEAVE HAPPY

"It's massive for the fans to come all this way. They've been great everywhere we play and we've put in some good performances. We've won a lot of games on the road and picked up points from some tough places. They'll be happy going home, we'll definitely be happy going home."
