Amoo's Lions Reaction

5 January 2013

Second half substitute David Amoo speaks to PNE.Com following the FA Cup tie at Millwall

“We were unlucky to lose against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup and against Millwall today.”

“We have been fantastic in the cup competitions this season; we have been adventurous and played expansive attacking football in previous games against Championship clubs. 

“It is a cup competition we want to win and we are not taking anything for granted. 

“The JPT tie at Coventry is a massive game, we are in the semi-finals and we have a massive chance to get to Wembley. 

“We need to stop feeling like we are unlucky all the time; we need to push on and record the right results. 

“Millwall are a good side, Kenny Jackett has done a very good job and has signed some quality players and they are just outside the Play-Offs in the Championship for a reason. 

“We were much better in the second half, we left ourselves open at times which allowed Millwall to break. We were unlucky not to earn at least a replay but we need to start hitting the net more often, we need to start scoring more goals. 

“The Millwall fans are tough but I expected the kind of reception I received from the supporters. I grew up only 15 minutes away from the ground. 

“We created a number of chances from set pieces, it was a great to come back to my former club but it would have been even better if we got a win. 

“We were unlucky I thought in the second  half, we went forward with a lot purpose, we created a lot of chances and Graham Cummins had a good chance right at the end,” Amoo exclusively told the Club’s website. 

Amoo, who started his career at the Lions before joining Liverpool as a teenager admits Preston were unlucky to lose to his former employers but recognises the squad need to start finishing their chances in front of goal.

The North End winger came on at half time and looked lively throughout the duration of the second half, playing in a forward three alongside Stuart Beavon and Jack King.
