What a Dunne-derful life!

30 March 2013

Long wait finally over for Alan

Alan Dunne ended a three year wait for a goal in some style with a sweetly struck winner for Millwall at Leicester City on Friday night.
Manager Kenny Jackett said in the press conference afterwards that "He doesn't seem to score ordinary goals by all accounts, they seem to be a bit special!", right-back Dunney would have been pleased to have shanked one in if it meant securing the three points, as he explains.
"I am buzzing, I must admit" he said with masterly understatement. "I'm delighted with the goal, delighted with the clean sheet and delighted to get the result.
Overall I think we deserved the win. Their keeper made some fantastic saves in the first half and then we finally got the goal right at the end.
It's been a long time since I've scored a goal and although it was my 22nd for the club, a few of those came early on when I was playing in midfield.
But I've had a good week in training and scored a few there so it was great to be able to get one in a match situation.
I did think about taking my shirt off when I scored, but then thought I'd better not as I would have got a red card having been booked already!"
However instead of resting on his laurels, Dunney now aims to keep the momentum going as Millwall look ahead to Monday's home game with Ipswich Town.
"We've got nine League games left now and we will be approaching them all in the same way - we want to win.
As long as we are playing well and winning everything, including our league position, will take care of itself."
