Having last found the net in December at the game against Charlton, Tomer Hemed was delighted to find himself back on the scoresheet against Brentford.

Hosting the side at the Amex Stadium for the Sky covered game, Hemed scored our second on the day to double our advantage and speaking to the Official Site having notched his ninth goal of the campaign, he was obviously pleased to be back amongst the mix again.

‘I’m very happy because we won and that is the most important thing for me. I saw Beram on the right-hand side and waited for the cross in a good position. He did some excellent work there and I was in the right place at the right time and in a good position to score. It wasn’t an easy header, but I`m happy it went in and that I helped the team to win. Occasionally I score goals with my head. In England it is more difficult than Spain, but I work very hard every day and I try to score in every game. Sometimes it doesn’t come, but I’m happy with my goal and hopefully I will score many more before the end of the season.’

Hemed went on to credit fellow goalscorers on the day Anthony Knockaert and Jamie Murphy, but it was their overall performance and not just the goals that had thrilled him as they caused no end of problems for the visitors.

‘Anthony is very good, he helped us a lot. He’s very important because he creates chances and is always dangerous for the other teams. It’s always good for me as a striker to have a player like him on the pitch and it’s very important we have players like this in the team. Jamie had an amazing game and always works hard. We know that he will give us 100 per cent in every game and all the players and staff appreciate his work.’

He ended his interview by praising the fans and being delighted to see them go home happy once more.

‘Our fans are amazing, I’m really happy here and in every game we see many people come here to support us. We want to make them happy, and I’m glad it happened last night.’
