Fourth-consecutive win 'a great feeling' - Mäenpää

City goalkeeper Niki Mäenpää was pleased with how his teammates performed yesterday, as City recorded their fourth-straight win in the Sky Bet Championship.

The shotstopper and his defence earned a third clean sheet too, with Marley Wartkins' late goal enough to beat Sheffield United 1-0 in BS3.

"We kept a clean sheet, did enough to score a goal and it was a great way to win the game," Mäenpää told bcfc.co.uk.

"We have to give credit to Sheffield United, they are a good side and they showed that yesterday. It was a tough game for us.

"We played good football, with good movement and we created a lot. I don’t know what happened, we didn’t do the basic things well enough so we gave Sheffield United a chance to come into the game.

"They created some problems in the first half and they started well in the second half. We found the way to keep the clean sheet, score an amazing goal so it is a great feeling.

"Before the international break we had won three games in a row so there are always question marks when you come back. We hadn't all been training together as much but I don’t think we showed any of that at all, I don’t think you could see that there had been an international break!

"This is an important week for us with two tough away games but this is the great feeling, to come come back from the international break and start again."
