Wolves Reaction

Wolves Reaction

Manager Lee Johnson and Danny Philliskirk have given their reaction to Oldham beating Wolves two one in the FA Cup.

Goals courtesy of Danny Philliskirk and Adam Rooney put us through to the next round in the competition and the manager told the press that he couldn't have been more delighted with our display on the night and the fact that we progressed.

'I'm really happy, it was excellent. Not just with the result, the general play. The game was played on our terms and our boys are growing up.'

Johnson goes on to say that since the Crawley game which was a real low point, he feels that the team have come on brilliantly in their play and understanding of each other and we are now reaping the rewards of that more often and it really clicked against a good Wolves side.

'The players are getting tune with each other and that is important because our pattern, movement, defending and balance is so much better than it was and that is no fluke because we have spent a lot of time working on it.'

The gaffer adds that really Philliskirk could've helped himself to a hat-trick on the night and he was delighted with the distribution and work ethic of midfield.

He does importantly say that we haven't cracked anything yet and one great performance doesn't make a season, but the signs are certainly there now that things can and will only improve in the coming games.

Danny Philliskirk also agreed with the gaffer that he should've had more on the day, saying to the Official Site that he was delighted to have got the goal, but personally he felt it 'ought to have been four'.

'I hit the post and then there were two occasions when I was clean through. I will punish myself for not taking those chances and go home angry I didn't get a hat-trick. But it was nice to win, to score and contribute.'

Hopefully we can take that into the league now and get another good result to keep us kicking on.
