Leahy: the best feeling of my career

10 December 2018

Match-winner Luke Leahy admits that scoring two stoppage-time goals against Coventry City on Saturday was the best feeling in his career to date.

The full-back, who was also captain on the day, popped up with an equaliser in the 91st minute following a long kick back into the box by Liam Roberts, and then scored a 94th minute penalty to secure all three points.

And against his boyhood club, Leahy feels as though the side didn’t play to their full potential but he was pleased with the character that everyone showed to go on and get the three points.

“It feels amazing,” said Leahy. “After getting some abuse from the fans from the FA Cup game it feels great to have won the game.

“Scoring two goals against Coventry to win us the game is great.

“We didn’t actually play well but I thought they deserved the three points.

“But we stuck in, we dug in till the end. We got the three points at the end of the day so you can’t ask for more.

“It’s the best feeling in my career so far.

“When we played them in the FA Cup, even though I didn’t get a goal or provide an assist, that was up there but this win tops it for sure. It’s the best day of my career.

“This game has shown what the dressing room is about, the fans and the manager and the staff.

“We never give up; Barnsley for example, scoring quite late on to get the draw and other times like Bristol Rovers to get the win.

“We’re a team that never gives up and that can only put us in good stead for the rest of the season.”
