Page praises ‘calm’ O’Connor

Rob Page was full of praise for Michael O’Connor after the midfielder kept his calm to secure a point with a late penalty kick.

Page told the official website:  “He does it [take penalties] everyday in training and there was no doubt in my mind, as soon as he picked the ball up I was pleased to see it was him and he was superb again today,” he said.

“Everyone played their part but Oakes in particular. He has picked up a few knocks throughout the game, he’s kept going and to keep his calm in the 94th minute when you know you’re going to get a point if you score the penalty was terrific from him.”
