INTERVIEW: Callum O’Hare Sheffield United Reaction

Two goals to treble his season tally…

13 March 2022

Sky Blues attacker Callum O’Hare had a hand in three goals to lead his side to a 4-1 riot of fifth-placed Sheffield United.

After a star season with the Sky Blues, Callum O’Hare showed his goal-scoring touch by grabbing a brace against Sheffield United.

The 23-year-old shared his joy at getting on the scoresheet, as well as helping City to a massive home win.

“That was a fun game to play in, they’re the ones you want to play in and the fans were behind us, so we’re obviously buzzing with the three points.

“I’ll take two for now. I needed a goal and I finally got one and then another straight after so hopefully I can kick on and keep producing.

“I knew that was the way it was going to go, get that scrappy one and thank god it was today and then scoring again after, so I’m really happy with that.

“The way the first one came off the post and there were four players around, I just had to try and get it in because it came off my thigh, so it went in and the next one was more composed and I put it in with my left foot.

“I feel like I’ve been unlucky at times, I see some people that get a lucky goal and I hadn’t had that until today, so hopefully I can kick on and get more goals and assists.

“I know I need to score more goals and that will take me to the next level, but I feel like my performances have been very good this season.

City’s number ten sung the praises of the striking duo, reflecting on each of their goals, and shed light on the impact they have for the Sky Blues.

“The defender made a mistake and Vik was there to pounce on it and thankfully he scored and we went in at 1-1 and came out a new team.

“I think our heads could’ve dropped if we didn’t get the goal, but we got it before half-time and kicked on from there.

“Viktor is unbelievable, he’s powerful and strong, there’s not a lot he can’t do, so we need to keep him fit and ready to go, you definitely wouldn’t want to mark him.

“After my second one I said to myself I’m going to be greedy for once, I wanted to score a hat-trick and then the chance came to me and I saw Godders there so I thought I’d give it to him, it’s a good feeling to get two goals and an assist.

“Godders is a big player for us, everyone knows that, and he’s a top striker, so we’re buzzing to have him back and back amongst the goals.”

The win against the Blades will serve as a mighty confidence boost for the Sky Blues as they tackle the upcoming matches before the international break.

O’Hare spoke on the importance of using the result as a building block for what City want to achieve this campaign.

“Look at our team, we can go out there and produce results. It’ll be a different game against Hull, but hopefully we can come out with the same result.

“We’ve got a great team and I feel like when it’s a game like that and we both try and play we can come out on top and we’ve shown that, we needed to come out and win today and we did that so hopefully we can kick on.

“There’s been enough games now to know we’re a very good side and we should be around the play-off spots, so hopefully at the end of the season we’ll be there."
