Callum O'Hare says he is feeling confident after finding the net yet against for the Sky Blues, this time against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

O'Hare set up City's opener in Sunderland and fired home the second, before Kasey Palmer made it a three-goal triumph in the North East.

On the result:

“Three-nil, to be honest I don't think we played great, they were tough conditions. They made it tough for us, but we dug in especially in the second half and yeah, I feel like in the end we we’re definitely the better team.”

On the pressure City faced at the start:

“The pressure was growing but fair play to everyone they threw their bodies in the way, we defended as a team and then obviously on a break, managed to get a goal and that settles things down a lot.”

“It was a weird game. It just felt like nothing was flowing for either team. I think the wind, the pitch, obviously these excuses but it doesn't help, and obviously we settled down and Tats got the goal.”

“It wasn’t the cleanest of goals but all that matters is the win really three points, three-nil, Merry Christmas.”

On his goal, and finishing with confidence:

“Haji [Wright] and I have been doing that in training and we've been saying we need to do this more in a game so yeah, that was good fun, and we were saying that when we we're celebrating.”

“I'm confident. I haven't slept a minute last night. I feel like a zombie. But I tried my best and scored."

On scoring just before being substituted:

“Yeah, that's just we got good players got good squad, it's just normal to have rotation so yeah, I'm happy to have scored before I got subbed off."

On Kasey Palmer's goal:

“I'm buzzing for him and what a guy what a player and in the scoring and then hopefully can both kick on.

“Kasey shot and then it came to Haji and he played it in and then he scores. I'm buzzing for Kasey, what a guy."

On the clean sheet:

“There were times in the game where they were on top a lot and we had to dig in. So to have kept a clean sheet fair play to everyone. I mean, there's the defenders and the keeper mostly but it's a team game everyone digs in from the front."

Looking ahead to Boxing Day:

“Let's go! I mean, three-nil today so they can have a nice Christmas and hopefully we can give them a nicer Boxing Day here."
