INTERVIEW: I can see they want me to do well

13 August 2015

Goalscorer Kevin Osei on the Chesterfield game

We spoke to goalscorer Kevin Osei shortly after full time of extra time on Tuesday night about how he felt following a late first goal for the club which sealed the victory over Chesterfield in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

"I feel very happy," he said. "It was great to score my first goal at home and I'm really pleased. At first I thought I should take it into the corner, but the defender came towards me so I wanted to do something. I went past him and took my chance.

"It's very special because I haven't scored for a long time. It was my first goal for the club and it was at home, so I'm just very happy."

"We won the game and that just makes it even better," he told us. "I can't even remember when I scored my last goal but I think this one was one of the best I've ever scored. 

"When I came on the manager told me to keep the ball, go forward and show my qualities for the team. He knows I'm fast so that's why he told me to go on and make a difference."

"We won against a League One side so that will give the team a lot of confidence," he said. "It's also given me confidence because I've scored my first goal, which is what I wanted to do. 

"I always try to do my best for the team and hopefully we can win a lot of games. We now have to keep trying to play how we played on Tuesday and last Saturday for the rest of the season." 

"I tried to show the fans what I can do," he explained. "I always try to do my best whenever I go on the pitch. I feel I played well, because I scored and got an assist and we won the game.

"It's good for me and I hope the fans enjoyed how I played. Their reaction to my goal was really good. I was happy because they are with me and I can see they want me to do well."
