Hourihane Delighted to Hit The Spot

15 August 2015

Barnsley scorer Conor Hourihane hopes to give Head Coach Lee Johnson a selection headache after netting the winner against Burton Albion.

“We’ll have to wait and see what the gaffer thinks,” Hourihane said.

“I think I gave him a headache by scoring today but we will have to wait and see.  “It was pleasing to score and get out on the pitch and contribute for the team.

“It was frustrating on Tuesday night to be on the bench and see the lads win two penalties but you never know what can happen in a football game so I got the ball today and hopefully that will be me going forward.”

Conor is aiming to feature against Millwall and thinks the Lions will be yet another strong proposition for the side.

“It’s going to be a tough game and they make it really tough. They have hostile atmosphere and I imagine they’ll make it difficult for us but we’ll be going there high on confidence and after Tuesday night as well. 

“We’re capable of beating anyone in the league and we’ll be going there to look forward to the game.

“We have got a young squad but on our day we can pass the ball around for fun but we didn’t play that well today and it’s a good sign that even though we’re young we can grind out results.”

Hourihane has been recovering from injury at the start of the season but feels he has plenty more to offer the fans and the team.

“I’ve had a frustrating time since I’ve come back from the summer, I’ve been out for three or four weeks and probably got thrown in a bit quickly last weekend.

“I didn’t feel sharp and was left out on Tuesday and again today but it was nice to contribute and you have to make the most of your times on the pitch and now it’s a headache for the gaffer.”
