Sean reviews Millwall and previews Wolves
Sean Scannell can’t wait for Tuesday night’s game against Wolves to come around after Saturday’s win at Millwall.
The London-born winger played a big part in the weekend win at the Den, during which Town prevailed despite dropping to 10 men with the scores level.
“Everyone felt really good after the game, because it was a great result having gone down to 10 men,” ‘Scanz’ told htafc.com.
Sean scored the game’s first goal to put the Terriers ahead – his third of the current campaign.
He explained: “When the ball sat up, I just wanted to hit it as hard as I can! It was a great ball to me from Conor (Coady) and it bounced up perfectly, so I just smashed it! It could have hit the corner flag, but I’m happy it went in.
“I thought I did alright. I didn’t get a lot of my decisions going my way though! That happens though; on other days I would have had around seven free-kicks. You get days like that.”
Town’s task was not made earlier at 1-1 when Nahki Wells received a second yellow card, but Scanz thought the response from the Terriers was very positive:
“We thought the (red card) decision was harsh on Nahki. I thought his second yellow was a bit harsh, but it did feel like a sending off was coming because of the number of bookings during the game.
“As you could see, we kept on fighting. Our heads didn’t go down, we kept going and got a great result winning 3-1. Looking at the score, you wouldn’t know we had 10 men.”
Scannell was particularly full of praise for Town’s defenders, led ably by Captain Mark Hudson:
“We defended really well throughout the game. ‘Huds’ did really well at the back against someone who is almost seven feet tall; he never lost a header. They had a lot of possession, but they couldn’t break us down.
“Going forward ‘Butts’ managed to get the second goal and then Harry Bunn earned the penalty, with ‘Vaughany’ finishing it.”
The Croydon native now wants to carry that good feeling into Tuesday night’s home game against Wolves:
“Everyone is buzzing. Even though Millwall is below us in the table, it’s traditionally a hard place to come to so to win after going down to 10 men at 1-1 shows we are capable of anything.
“We want to go keep going and go on a little run. We generally have good games against Wolves; I thought we defended quite well against them earlier in the season when we won 3-1 and we can take the confidence from Saturday’s win into two hard games this week.”
