REACTION: O'Connor Pleased With 10th Goal

30 March 2015

Exiles striker Aaron O'Connor scored his 10th goal of the season on Friday, but says he won't be happy until he reaches his target.

Aaron O'Connor spoke to the press following the 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley in which he grabbed a scrappy first goal. “Max has put a cross in from the left and I've just run across the near post, I've got a little faint touch on it, but the keeper should just gobble it up to be fair” said O'Connor.


“I haven't got the cleanest of touches, and he should just handle it, but it's just gone through his legs.”


There was some debate on whether O'Connor managed to get a final touch, but the striker cleared up any doubt “it's on target so it'll go down as my goal, but it's a goalkeeping error at the same time.”


O'Connor also spoke about strike-partner Shaun Jeffers who came on as a second half substitute, scoring the late second goal to secure the win. “When he comes on he always does well and I enjoy playing up front with him” said O'Connor “I was happy that he came on and contributed.”


O'Connor went on to speak about the forwards in more detail “I thought me and Miles Storey played well, we worked hard and then Shaun came on, he's got a different style, but I thought although the three of us didn't have that many chances, we worked hard and grinded them down and took our chances when they did come.”


The forward, who's goal at Accrington saw him move into double-figures for the season said he'd only be happy when he's reached his goal-target. “When Jimmy took charge I spoke to him and he gave me a target of double figures, obviously I've got more games to add to my current total, I've still not reached the target I set myself, when I reach that I'll be happy.”
