Mixed emotions for Jamar Loza after first senior goal for Norwich City earns them a draw at Huddersfield Town

18 March 2015

Jamar Loza says he experienced contrasting emotions following the final whistle against Huddersfield Town, just moments after his first senior goal for Norwich City earned them a point.

The Canaries were heading towards a narrow loss after James Vaughan had put the Terriers 2-1 up in injury time, but Loza struck immediately after the restart to move his side up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship.

The 2-2 result left them five points off the automatic promotion places as the top two, Middlesbrough and Watford, both triumphed.

"I'm happy to score my first goal, but it's mixed emotions because I'm disappointed we didn't win," the striker reflected to Norwich City TV.

"It's all a bit of a blur now, but I thought the referee was going to blow any second. We got the ball straight into their box, started causing confusion and it dropped to me.

"I stretched back to get it, took a shot and happily it went in. I was buzzing after the game, and was shaking because I couldn't believe it.

"The top ones are a little further away from us, so it's going to be difficult but I'm sure we'll bounce back at the weekend. I still think other teams are going to drop points, so it's up to us to win the rest of our games."
