Feeney looks ahead to Oldham game following Iron debut

4 February 2022

Recent arrival Liam Feeney is hoping a positive first full week of settling into the squad will help himself and the fellow newcomers as United prepare to host Oldham Athletic on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Sitting bottom of League Two and facing the team just above them in the table, there is no getting away from the importance of the game, which the 35-year-old is looking forward.

Should he play, Feeney would make his home debut in front of the Sands Venue Stadium faithful, and so could fellow new arrivals Anthony Grant, Joe Nuttall, Rekeil Pyke and Ryan Delaney.

Talking after last weekend's narrow 1-0 loss at Port Vale, Feeney told iFollow Iron: "The lads have all been very welcoming and everyone seems great. The staff have been helping me so it’s been good. I’m looking forward to a full week of training this week and getting ready for the next game.

"The more you get to know people and the way that they play the easier it is, but there were positive signs and flashes of good play. We had two great chances, one in each half, and if we score one of them it could have turned out different.

"I’m sure we’ll be working hard this week, and the gaffer will be getting across all his points. I think our outlook will be every game that there are three massive points up for grabs. We want to win every match as they're all important to us.

"Obviously it being Oldham, it puts a little bit extra on to it but we've just got to go out there and make sure we put in a real hard working performance, and hopefully we get the win."

Reflecting on the defeat at Vale, the signing from Tranmere added: "It was disappointing conceding the goal the way we did because other than that I think it could have been a very good away performance to take a well deserved point away at a difficult place in difficult conditions, with the pitch and the wind.

"Obviously they're a team pushing for promotion but we had a couple of great chances ourselves. I'm just really disappointed we conceded from a set piece.

"I think if you get done by a worldie from 30-yards you can hold your hands up but when it’s a goal that’s avoidable it's disappointing. At set pieces, we know our jobs and it’s one that we can control. There were positives to take out of that performance as a whole though."
