North Queensland Fury's Studman vows to bounce back after own goal
The 25-year old was making his debut for the Fury, five years after playing his one and only A-League game with the Newcastle Jets, and was performing well until a horror incident handed the opposition a goal.
Unfortunately for Studman, the ball ricocheted off him and into the back of the net to give Adelaide the lead which they eventually held onto to take out the contest 3-2.
Studman was devastated after the game and said he would fight back for his teammates.
"It was heartbreaking, especially when we lost (3-2) it's devastating," Studman told the Townsville Bulletin.
"I'd rather play average and us win ... if we won and we didn't cop goals like that, I'd be happy.
"It's a team sport for me and I love all these boys, it's ... such a big family, so I'd rather us win. It was devastating."
Studman added that he was happy to leave the moment behind and prepare himself for the trip to take on Melbourne Heart on Saturday.
"I can leave it behind straight away," he added.
"I would absolutely love to play again against Melbourne (Heart)."
