O'NEILL | "We need to push on now"

19 September 2016

Blues winger labels victory over Millwall as a brilliant performance...

Luke O’Neill hailed the Millwall win as a “massive result” as the Blues registered their first home victory of the season with a 3-1 win at the weekend.

After a disappointing result against Scunthorpe United, Phil Brown’s side gave the perfect reaction to that setback with a battling and convincing triumph over the Lions.

A result and performance that couldn’t have gone much better says O’Neill who sealed the points having met Ben Coker’s ball with a right footed strike three minutes from time, after Stephen McLaughlin had regained the lead following Aiden O’Brien’s leveller from David Mooney’s opener.

“It was a massive result, especially on the back of Scunthorpe, we needed that.

“We needed a lift, and I thought the boys were brilliant.

“There’s been a bit of pressure at home with wins not coming that easy but the fans were brilliant and the boys were excellent so we couldn’t have done any more.”

A lively game was accompanied by an equally good atmosphere created in the stands by the Blues faithful, who were delighted to see their team get back to winning ways on home turf.

On the back of Saturday’s win, O’Neill, who was pleased to get on the scoresheet, believes there is more than enough quality amongst the ranks to kick on now.

“It was never going to be a quiet game, there were plenty of challenges flying and the fans were in amongst it so it was a good atmosphere and I’m just pleased we got the three points.

“It’s always nice to get a goal and I just want to progress now, get a few more and a few assists and hopefully get in that starting eleven.

“But the boys were brilliant, and it’s going to be hard to get in there but I’m just going to try my hardest and keep pushing.

“We need to push on now and keep going because we’ve got a good squad here, and there’s still lads to come back fit so it’s looking good.”
