Robert Snodgrass has hailed the never-say-die attitude of Hull City as he struck at the death to earn a point at Burnley.
Snodgrass has more reason than most to grab his Premier League chance with both hands, having missed the entire 2014/15 season with a career-threatening knee injury sustained on his league debut for the club.
He battled back as part of last year’s promotion-winning side and is now enjoying a purple patch for club and country, taking his tally to six goals in as many matches with an exquisite injury-time free-kick to ensure a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.
Less than a week earlier the 29-year-old scored a hat-trick for Scotland against Malta and he is relishing his leading role with a Tigers side who are making a habit of upsetting the odds.
“It’s nice to be the man that gets the goal,” he said after delivering a seventh point of the season for a team whose off-field strife has yet to derail matters on the pitch.
“It’s nice when you get on the scoresheet but always nicer when there’s some points in there. To get the point shows that never-say-die attitude.
“I’ve been working a lot on free-kicks and moments like that you’ve got to seize the moment, be the difference, score the goal. The practice you put in needs to come to the fore when you step up so I’m delighted.”
