Adelakun: Carry on where we left off

31 March 2017

Hakeeb Adelakun states it’s important for the Iron to carry on where they left off heading into Saturday’s clash with Millwall.

The winger feels momentum is crucial at this stage of the campaign and, if United were to take another three points at the Den, Adelakun believes it would be a significant boost.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Adelakun said: “I definitely want to be involved again, and help the boys get another three points.

“It will be for sure a tough game, but we’ve just got to focus on what we’re doing. If we keep on getting our points and keep performing well, we’ll definitely be there.

“We want to build on our own performances and get ourselves going once more.”

On a personal note, Adelakun came into the starting line-up for Sunday’s success against Bradford City.

While the 20-year-old was naturally delighted to feature from the off, he insisted the hard work will not stop there.

“All I wanted was to get back playing, and hopefully I can keep working hard and keep myself in there,” he stated.

“I thought I did pretty well. I maybe could have been involved more, but I’m trying to build on that and move forward.

“The manager (Graham Alexander) was happy with what I did last week, so that’s why he put me in the team. I need to keep that going, keep working hard keep pushing.

“The manager told me to train well, train properly and come out ready to work hard, and you’ll be rewarded.”

Adelakun stated three points were all that mattered in that clash with the Bantams. However, he declared he and his team-mates must now kick on - starting with the Lions. 

“It was an entertaining game, and thankfully we came out of it with three points,” Adelakun declared.

“That was of course very important for us, so hopefully now we can just kick on and keep the run going.”
