DELIGHTED to poach a winner on his home debut, even one so controversial.
The Preston loan striker now has two in two games but is still out to improve.
On his goal, he explained: "I went to close down the keeper and, when he sent a long ball down the field, Sodje headed it back and it was flicked on by their defender and straight to me.
"I never heard a whistle and I had my back to the linesman, so I never saw him pick up the flag.
"All I did was finish it off, which is what you've got to do as a striker. When there's a chance to put the ball in the net, you take it.
"When I turned around, I wasn't sure about the goal so I didn't go off celebrating or anything, but when the referee went over to the linesman we all just started arguing the case.
"Next thing, the referee just gave the goal and it was a great feeling to hear the crowd and to celebrate with all the lads."
Abbott is enjoying himself at the McAlpine.
"From Day One the lads have been great, the manager has been great and I've felt very much at home at Huddersfield," he said.
"It was smashing to get a big reception from the crowd at the beginning and to know they were right behind me, and while I'm happy with two goals in two games, I know I can play a lot better.
"I just want to get games under my belt and, if the goals keep coming, then confidence will be high."
Town Juniors came from two down to win 3-2 at Derby. John McAliskey and John McCombe (2) got the Town goals in the second half.
