Palmer reflects on a ‘perfect debut’

It was debut perfection for Kasey Palmer after he netted the winner just five minutes after coming on against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Matty Taylor equalised after Will Buckley’s opener, before Taylor turned provider with Palmer nodding in from close range.

The loanee from Chelsea’s impact ensured City would make it four consecutive wins as part of a 10-game unbeaten streak.

“At 1-0 I thought this isn’t the way to make your debut but I’ve come on, it’s 2-1 and I got the winning goal. You can’t top that for a debut so I’m buzzing,” attacking midfielder Palmer said.

“It was perfect, I couldn’t have wished for a better debut! When I scored I made sure I went over to the side who booed me a few months ago, to try and win them back over. I’m buzzing with that, it’s good to get the three points and score on my debut.”

Goal-line technology was used to confirm Palmer’s goal, with a Bolton defender keen to hook the ball off the line following his header.

There was a second or two before the referee confirmed the goal, much to the delight of Palmer, his teammates and the supporters.

He continued: “As Matty’s put the ball up I thought I’m going for this. I’ve headed it and thought I saw it go in so I looked at the linesman but thinking he’s not going to give it.

“I turned around and saw the referee checking with goal-line technology so I went a bit wild!”

Made in Chelsea: The loanees celebrate Palmer's moment

And Palmer was able to celebrate his winner alongside his fellow loanees from Chelsea: Tomas Kalas and Jay Dasilva.

He said: “It was good to be on the pitch with them, we’ve played together in the past so we know how we play. Hopefully we can build more a relationship and keep winning.”
