Humps pleased by Hearts' bravery

02 April 2023

The on-loan Wigan man scored his fourth goal of the season this afternoon: a stunning long-range effort from his own half that sent Gorgie into raptures.

Robbie Neilson declared it the strike of the season, but Humphrys focused on the bravery shown by the men in maroon to seal the win in challenging circumstances.

"I'm just more happy with the three points, to be honest," he told Hearts TV.

"I came on as a sub, looking to try and make some kind of impact on the game. After Alex scored what could have been the winning goal, I was happy just to see the game out and get the points. Obviously scoring that goal is just the icing on the cake.

"I don't think anyone could ever accuse this team of not being brave. It might not always work for us, but we want to be a passing and attacking team. We want to be direct and entertain the fans that are coming here every week. Even today you can see it; the stadium is sold out. It was such a fantastic support. One of the main things that we pride ourselves on is our bravery.

"At half-time, the lads came in and just talked about how important it was not to panic. We're a top team that's third in the league for a reason. We knew that if we got the first goal back, the rest would soon come, and thankfully that's what happened."
