It Was Worth The Wait - Freeman

Luke Freeman says his first City goal on home soil was worth the wait.

The winger's goal of the season contender sealed the 2-0 victory for City over Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Freeman, 24, executed a stunning volley in the front of the South Stand to get his name on the scoresheet for the first time in 58 appearances in BS3 for City.

“My first goal for Bristol City at Ashton Gate has been long-awaited but I think it was worth it!” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“It hadn’t really been on my mind that I was still to score at Ashton Gate. The main thing is the team winning, as long as we’re winning with me playing my part then I’m happy.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a weight off my shoulders but I’m still chuffed with the goal.

“It sat up for me so nicely and I just needed to hit it cleanly. I caught it sweet and loved seeing it fly in the far corner.

“I knew as soon as I hit it that it was going in. We do practise our volleying, so it’s good that it’s paid off.

“I’ve already equalled my tally from last season (two) and there’s plenty of this campaign left, so I’m really happy at the moment.”

Freeman had only just recovered from an ankle injury to make his first start for six weeks.

“I felt ok fitness-wise,” he added. “With the ankle injury I had, I wasn’t really able to do much training; I just had to sit around and wait for it to heal.

“I’m quite happy with where I’m at physically now.”
