Tammy Abraham: My thoughts on hitting historic 20 goal milestone

Tammy Abraham stressed that hitting 20 goals was a “massive achievement” for him – and believes the epic comeback draw it came in could be a “pivotal moment” this season. 

Abraham became the first claret and blue star to reach that milestone in 38 years, following Peter Withe in 1980/81. 

The on-loan forward spoke affectionately at reaching that target and reiterated that he’s now looking for even more success collectively as the club push for promotion. 

He told Club TV: “It was a massive achievement for me. I said to myself when I got here ‘I’ve got to score goals’ and that’s what I have done.  

“I am scoring goals for a great side who are providing chances for me. I have got myself in the right places and converted those chances that have come my way. 

“That’s the expectation I have with myself, that’s the demands I put on myself. I set myself high targets.  

“I came here to take this great club up. That was my mindset. That was my thinking. I stick to my word. I will keep fighting for this target until the very last game.” 

On the comeback point against Sheffield United, Abraham said it stressed the spirit in the squad. 

He added: “We are a team that never give up. We always believe in ourselves.  

“Going 3-0 down is never easy. No-one would ever think we’d come back like that. But we have a fantastic squad.  

“The first was a good goal by Tyrone and that drove us forward. We got the second goal and everyone’s spirits went up even more.  

“We just knew we had to keep going to the very last minute. And then Andre provides a great header right at the end.  

“It can be a pivotal moment. For us, the manner of the result is a massive boost. 

"We have to keep going, drive on, head into Wednesday in good spirits – that’s another big game – we have to go for the three points there.”
