Flicker Proud of Players

12 January 2013

Caretaker Manager's reaction

“It was an impact injury. It was like a really bad dead leg. We’ll ice it and try and get rid of it. We’ll know over the next few days how he is.”

“The only tarnish on the day was Jim (O’Brien) coming off early doors.

“I think every fan in this stadium wanted him (Chris Dagnall) to score. Okay, he’s not a striker who’s really prolific, but wow, the work and the effort he puts in is incredible. He will get goals, we need to eb patient. But he deserved that standing ovation. I was delighted when he scored. You can see every lad congratulated him because they all know how hard he works.

The hero of the hour, Chris Dagnall, struck both goals to earn his side the three points and his effort wasn’t unnoticed by Flicker.

“I want to give more days like this to the fans. The players have worked so hard to play in the Championship. I want them to achieve more than they have done.”

“It’s the start of a mini-league that we’ve got to win. I’m proud to be working with that group of players.

“I’ve been proud of them (the players) since I took over,” said Flitcroft. “They’ve been giving performances all season and just haven’t had that finishing touch. The hardest thing in football to achieve is the finishing touch of scoring goals and today we’ve found them.

Reds Caretaker Manager David Flitcroft caught up with the press after today’s 2-0 victory over Leeds United at Oakwell.
