O'Hora: The fans have been amazing

Warren O’Hora spoke with iFollow MK Dons after scoring the winner to claim three points in MK Dons’ 1-0 victory over Cambridge United...

22 March 2022

The Dons improved their away form once again at the Abbey Stadium as they made it nine wins and two draws from 11 unbeaten away matches.

O’Hora’s deciding goal also resulted in Liam Manning’s men closing the gap on first place to just four points. Here’s what the defender had to say about the match:
 
“The conditions were really tough. It was really dry and bobbly, which made it tough to implement our playstyle but, when we did, we caused problems.
 
“We had to be switched on because they’re a big physical side. There are some big lads in that team and when you’re up against a team like that they want a lot of set-pieces, so it’s about limiting those chances for them.
 
“You always have a chance to win the game if you keep a clean sheet, so that was the main thing for us.”
 
The number four’s goal came from a rare MK Dons long-throw set-piece. When questioned about the goal, O’Hora said: “Daniel (Harvie) came out of nowhere and said ‘I love a long throw-in’ - we were a bit confused until we the saw the distance he could get.
 
“We worked on it in training and agreed that we would use it if we needed it. When the ball went out, we turned to the bench and said that we wanted the long throw and luckily enough it landed to me and I was able to slot it into the corner.”
 
Mo Eisa was awarded the assist for the goal, though O’Hora jokingly added: “I’m sure he meant to pass it to me - I’m sure he was selfless enough to pass to a centre back in the box.
 
“Having said that, they all count. It landed to me and I was thankfully able to put it away and get three points.”
 
Finally, the game-winner expressed his gratitude toward the travelling fans, not only for this game but for the whole season: “It felt as if there were so much more fans than there was - it was really nice to hear them behind us.
 
“They have been amazing, not just today but all season. We said at half-time, we have the fans behind us now so we can go and win this game. They came out in force and we really enjoyed it.”
