INTERVIEW: Callum O'Hare Millwall Reaction

The midfielder shined during the 2-1 win at The Den...

4 January 2021

Sky Blues midfielder, Callum O’Hare praised his team-mates after they secured three points against Millwall this past weekend.

City came out of the blocks in the first half and were deservedly two goals to the good going into the break, after a Jake Cooper own goal and a Gustavo Hamer strike from the edge of the area.

The only disappointment for the Sky Blues heading into half-time was that they weren’t more goals in front.

O’Hare helped create the Sky Blues first goal after latching onto Fankaty Dabo’s through ball to pick-out Jordan Shipley and was key in City’s attacking output at The Den.

“I thought we played really well, and we probably should’ve killed the game off in the first half and we should’ve been a few more than two goals up, but we grinded out the game in the second half and we definitely deserved the win.

“I feel like we working the space well and we were playing the ball out from the back well and we were playing one-twos around them and they couldn’t really handle us, especially first half.

“We’re all good friends and we talk about football on and off the pitch and I think that shows on the pitch as well.”

After the re-start, City hit the woodwork through Shipley once more and had chances to kill the game off through O’Hare himself late on.

“I should’ve scored.

“I saw the ‘keeper step to his left just before I was about to shoot and I tried to send him with the eyes and put the ball in the other corner, but I probably should’ve just lifted it and scored.

“I feel if we scored a third goal after the break, we could’ve gone on to win four or five-nil but we didn’t get that goal and we had to work hard.

“We’ve been really good defensively over the last few games so we just had to do that once again and we got the win and the three points and that’s all that matters at the end of the day.”

One disappointment from the afternoon was that injury sustained to striker Matty Godden early on in the first half.

Godden had only just returned from an injury, so it was a shame to see him forced off in only his fourth game back.

“It was really disappointing to see Matty come off injured, especially after he’s only just come back, but I thought Max came on and he done really well, especially towards the end holding the ball up for us.

“I don’t really get injuries so touch wood that can continue, and I can keep playing week in week out.”
