'We did what we set out to achieve' - O'Leary

Max O’Leary says the plan came together in the second half at Millwall.

The young keeper pulled off a superb penalty save with a strong hand as City rallied to fight back and secure the 2-1 win on Tuesday night, thanks to goals from Jamie Paterson and Famara Diédhiou.

It was the turning point in the game and helps City keep the pressure on the teams around them in their bid for a strong finish in the Sky Bet Championship.

“We needed to keep it tight,” O’Leary explained. “Obviously, I gave it (the penalty) away so I needed to redeem myself. I did that and I was happy to keep it out.

“It was a much better second half. We weren’t happy with the first half performance, but we came out and got the job done so we were happy with how aggressive we were and how we got on the front foot in the second half. It was what we wanted to do.”

Come Sunday it may or may not be the play-offs still up for grabs but regardless, O'Leary wants to end the season on a high at Hull City.

He said: "All we can do it win our last two games. We have won one, it’s out of hands now but we will have to keep going and prepare properly for Sunday."
