Aiden O'Brien: We must stick together

14 April 2015

Striker believes togetherness between players and fans crucial in remaining games

Aiden O'Brien may only have made 15 senior starts for The Lions, but he has already endeared himself to Millwall fans with his intelligent performances playing up front.

Not only that, but the 21-year-old has instantly picked up just how vital the vocal backing of the fans, both home and away, has been for the team.

With just five Championship matches remaining, and Neil Harris' side seven points clear of safety, the importance of Tuesday night's home game against a Wigan side sitting level on points and one place ahead in the table has not been lost on the Academy graduate.

And Aiden believes that the spirit and togetherness of everyone at the club will be crucial if The Lions are to produce arguably their greatest escape ever and claw their way out of the bottom three.

"I'm enjoying my football," he said, "And I'm glad that Chopper has given me a chance; we have a good bond.

"I hope that I am repaying him by improving, and impressing on the pitch. I've scored one goal and want to get another couple before the end of the season.

"But at this stage of the season it's not about me, it's about the team, it's about keeping us up, about us sticking together - the players and the fans. If we can do that, hopefully we can succeed.

"We know what we have to do as a group of players and if we can play as well as we can, and with our supporters right behind us, we can win the game."
