The manager evaluates Blackburn’s victory.

Kieran McKenna believes Town’s 4-3 victory over Blackburn was exactly what he expected from the match.

After only four minutes, Harry Clarke scored his first goal for the Club, and Arnor Sigurdsson equalized five minutes later.

Goals from Nathan Broadhead and George Hirst in the span of seven minutes gave the Blues a two-goal lead at halftime.

A Clarke own goal and a Sammie Szmodics attempt restored parity before Massimo Luongo’s spectacular finish ended an entertaining match between two teams eager on taking the game to one other.

“What a game,” Kieran exclaimed to Town TV. “It was the most open thing I’ve ever been a part of.” “The only comparison I can think of is playing against Leeds in the Premier League under [Marcelo] Bielsa.”We knew they’d be open, that they’d attack, and that it’d be difficult to keep them out, but we also knew we’d have opportunities.

“We’ve had 29 shots to their 10 and we’ve had huge chances to score more. We definitely could have had more goals out there.


“The obvious thing to say is that we’re disappointed that we’ve given up three goals, but we know we can defend.” We’ve got two clean sheets in the last two games and four in the first eight.


“We scored four goals, so we can’t complain, but we needed to open up a three or four goal lead for that game to be over.”


“Of course, we’re disappointed with the goals we’ve given up, but we could also be disappointed that we didn’t score eight.” Let’s simply be joyful, I think!”
