Forward Promise Omochere spoke to the press after scoring the opener in Fleetwood Town’s 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round.
The Town forward converted in some fashion to break the deadlock at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon as he got on the end of a Danny Andrew cross from the left, after diving towards it, and nodded it past Cameron Dawson – between the Sheffield sticks.
Here’s what Promise had to say after the game:
On his goal…
“It was a great ball in, he [Danny Andrew] really whipped it in and made my job easy to just head it in – I’m happy with the goal and happy to score another goal in the FA Cup.
“I don’t remember a lot about the goal, I was just happy to be in the right position at the right time to get on the end of Danny’s great cross and to see it go into the back of the net was a great feeling.
“Obviously delighted with the goal and the more I score, the more confident I will be and the more I’ll be able to show what I can do - the goal gives me a lot of confidence going into the next game.”
On the fans…
“The fans were great; you could hear them throughout the whole game, and they did come in numbers compared to the crowd the home fans had. They are loud and were great from start to finish.
“It was nice to celebrate my goal with the fans but I got myself a yellow for it, so I don’t know if I’ll be doing it again.”
On the team performance…
“I thought the lads played well; I think we were in the game for nearly the whole of it, so it was a good shift. Sheffield Wednesday is a tough place to go so to come here and leave with a result to put ourselves in the hat is good and I’m looking forward to the replay.
“It was tough to play against the three of their centre-halves, but obviously I just have to back myself and put my best foot forward and it helped the team.”
“It just shows how good we can be and how resilient we can be; we’ve got a good result against bigger teams in the league and at home, so I think if we keep picking up points in the league, it shows that we can compete against anyone.”
