Tomlin: Always believe I'll get a chance

15 December 2012

Striker delighted to salvage a point for Blues to extend unbeaten run

Gavin Tomlin says he always believes he will get a chance to score – and that’s exactly what happened against Bradford as he slotted home in injury time to rescue a point for Blues.

Tomlin has been in stunning form in front of goal in recent weeks, and bagged his tenth of the season to make it 2-2 against Bradford City.

And the striker insists that even despite a couple of half-chances in the first half, he was always confident he would have another opportunity to grab a goal.

“As a striker you always have to believe you will get one more chance, no matter how late in the game,” Gav said.

“That was exactly the case today after we both Britt and I had had a couple of chances in both halves.

“My confidence is up at the moment and that always helps because when you’re in that position there is only one thing on your mind.

“I’m delighted to continue my run of goals but more importantly I’m happy the run for the team continues.”

Tomlin felt that it was a pretty even game, against a side he thinks will be pushing for automatic promotion come the end of the season.

He added: “I thought we were very unlucky to go 2-0 down because just before that we had built up some pressure.

“It just shows the lads have a great attitude because we responded really well against a very good side.

“You could see their confidence after the win against Arsenal but it was clear we are confident too by the way we responded.

“A draw is probably a fair result and when you’re two goals behind with ten minutes, you’re always happy with a point.”
