O'Brien: Fans Were Different Class

30 January 2013

O'Brien on Man of the Match display

Reds midfielder Jim O'Brien praised his team mates and the supporters after tonight's 2-0 win over Millwall.

Jim received the man of the match award for his tireless display in midfield.

"I was so excited for the game and everyone was the same. The shift the lads put in was unbelievable.

"The last six games have been incredible with the effort we’ve put in.

"The lads who played at the back tonight were safe as houses – I don’t remember Steeley making a save."

Chris Dagnall opened the scoring with his sixth of the season, and Jason Scotland announced his arrival at Oakwell with a thumping finish to secure the points.

"You can see the quality (of Jason Scotland) straight away," added Jim. "He came in yesterday and it’s not long to bed in. He’s off to a flyer and hopefully he’ll bag a few more.

"We’ll get our energy back. We’ll just go again and take each game as it comes.

"I thought the fans were different class from the word go, they got right behind us."
