Midweek Review: September 14th
The Millwall stopper has had a fantastic start to the season. The newly promoted London team find themselves in 3rd thanks in no small part to Forde’s displays. Another clean sheet for the keeper last night, which included a terrific save from Jem Karacan in the dying moments where his effort was pushed onto the post. The Reading keeper Adam Federici was all that stood between Forde and winning man of the match. The Galway born keeper has never represented Ireland, but should this for continue then it will be hard to overlook him.
A terrific display from O’Connor in Scunthorpe’s 4 nil demolition of Sheffield United. He was instrumental in every attack that Scunthorpe had and the only thing his performance was lacing was a goal. O’Connor looks to be an excellent link man between midfield and attack and was a danger in the air all night. Can be considered a snip as a £200,000 signing from Lincoln City.
It is not just Irish players we focus on here at GreenScene. O’Driscoll has quietly been doing an excellent job at the Keepmoat Stadium. An impressive 3-1 victory over Norwich last night brought Doncaster up to 4th in the table. O’Driscoll has been working miracles for Doncaster since surprising everyone by beating Leeds in the 2008 League 1 playoff. O’Driscoll represented Ireland 3 times in 1982 and 83.
Kenny again finds himself on the good list after yet another clean sheet. He has been an every present in a very mean QPR defence that has conceded just 2 goals in 6 games. Kenny never looked like being beaten last night.
No distinctly bad performances that are worth highlighting, though the Irish players with Ipswich, Derby and Portsmouth will not be happy with their teams performance or their final result.
