“We rode our luck” - Keane
ROY Keane believed that his side had to ride their luck on their way to a 2-1 win at Sheffield United this afternoon.
ROY Keane believed that his side had to ride their luck on the way to a 2-1 win at Sheffield United this afternoon.
First-half goals from Tamas Priskin and Gareth McAuley sandwiched an equaliser by Stephen Quinn, and although the Blades mounted a late rally, Town held on to record their third win on the bounce.
As a result, they are now back in the play-off zone.
“It was a hard-earned three points for us,” insisted Keane.
“I thought we played a lot better here last year (3-3 draw), and we had to ride our luck at times.
“On another day we could have lost this match. They put us under pressure late on, but we held out well,” added Keane.

But Town could have injury worries ahead of Tuesday night’s home game against Derby. Skipper David Norris missed this afternoon’s game with an ankle injury, and is rated as extremely doubtful by Keane. Tom Eastman and Grant Leadbitter also picked up knocks.
