Barry Corr was obviously delighted to score the winner against Oxford United at the weekend, but he was quick to praise a solid team performance on the day.

Scoring the winner the very end of the game, Corr told the Official Site.

‘We needed that competition. I think I would have done the same thing if I was the manager! He’s put the two of them up front together. It’s good to have competition for places and it keeps us all on our toes.’

Corr says that he felt we started very brightly in the game, but with two up top we were a little bit more open than normal he felt, but in return it made for an exciting game for the fans and once Gary Deegan was sent from the pitch, he knows the players had to show tremendous character down at ten men and Oxford certainly had chances of their own during the 90 minutes.

‘Whether I’m on the bench or starting, I’ll always give my best for the team. I’m really pleased to have got the winning goal, but it’s been a team performance.’

With Coker taking his own plaudits for setting up all three goals, Corr went on to say that he was a ‘quality player with great technique’ and for strikers he was a ‘dream’ because of the deliveries he’s capable of putting in.

However, whilst everyone is delighted, he also said that we have to build on this now and get ourselves some real momentum back because we’ve only shown flashes of our true potential this season in his eyes, and we’ve let a lot of points go that we should’ve tied up, so it’s time to make up for that now in the second half of the season.
