INTERVIEW: Callum O'Hare Watford Preview

The midfielder is looking to take positives from Wednesday into this weekend...

6 November 2020

Sky Blues midfielder, Callum O’Hare is looking to take confidence from Wednesday night’s performance, despite the result.

O’Hare was restored to the starting eleven and got himself on the scoresheet with his second goal of the season.

The midfielder’s performance earned him a place in the EFL Team of the Week and reflecting on Wednesday, Callum is looking to take the positives into Watford this weekend.

He said: “It was heart breaking that we conceded last kick of the game and I couldn’t believe it, but you know we’ve just got to take the positives from it and move on to the weekends game.

“I think we dominated them. First half I think we defended well, we didn’t really create as much as we usually do, but then like I said, second half we dominated and I think we definitely should have won the game and to come away with nothing is not a nice feeling.

“You get confidence from it. I know they're not playing well at the minute but they've got a great squad and I think we've dominated him in a match so we should come with confidence really.”

Wednesday was the second time this season that the Sky Blues had played with two up top from the off and the first time O’Hare had played behind the duo

The midfielder was able to use the space that the forwards created to not only create things going forward for others, but also get himself on the scoresheet.

“I think it's just more danger on the attack, rather than obviously before we had one up there and sometimes, we got pinned in too deep but now with two up top we’ve always got a danger.

“I prefer it to be fair, like when I get the ball there’s always another option; there’s one always available to feet and one stretching the game and then obviously I've got someone wide as well.

“I said to Sam before the game against Forest, because obviously they play 4 at the back and they have two centre backs and we had two strikers, I said to him I know if I make a run into the box they probably won't pick me up so I said to him if you cut in and whip it on your left foot look for me and  as soon as I saw him cut in I made my run into the box and it was an unbelievable ball to be fair.”

City now travel to Vicarage Road this weekend to face recently relegated Premier League side, Watford in the final game before the international break.

Callum made his full debut against the Hornets last season in the Carabao Cup and he is looking forward to the challenge.

“We know on our day we can beat anyone and we know they’re a good side and obviously they've come down from Premier League but we’re in the same division for a reason.”
