CENTRAL defender Anthony O’Connor was delighted with the clean sheet against Sheffield United.

He says: “It was a tough game, more mentally than physically. At times they had more of the ball than us but we perhaps should have nicked it at the end.

“We knew what we were going to get from them and we had to concentrate all the time. We know we can’t win every game but if we keep a clean sheet we will take a point.

“It was a good result for us and we showed our battling qualities not just the attacking side of the game."

O’Connor came into the side against Chesterfield due to Shane Cansdell-Sherriff’s illness and held onto his place after a fine performance.

He says: “It was new to me not being in the side but there is competition for places throughout the side and I have had to wait for my chance. Luckily, I got it last Saturday and held onto my place.

“But I know there are others looking to get into the team and I have to keep on my toes.”

O’Connor is delighted to be back at the Brewers after playing on-loan under Gary Rowett.

He says: “I knew it was a great club and I had no hesitation in coming back to work under a great manager.”
