O'Shea Has Won It All - But He Faces A New Experience

Former Man Utd defender is seeing the other side of the coin at SOL this season.

John O’Shea: “It’s (fighting relegation) not something I’m used to.

“So you could say it’s a new experience for me.

“But in its own way, I don’t think it is any different from when you’re chasing for a title – it’s all about the importance of winning pressure games.

“You faced that all the time at Old Trafford and you got used to it, so it is not going to affect me playing in pressure games at the other end of the table.

“It all comes down to everyone in the team focusing completely on the job they’ve got to do, making sure they do it and looking to help out and support their team-mates along the way.

“While there’s no denying the Norwich game is a massive one for us because it’s the next one up and the next game is always the most important – I wouldn’t say that it is like a cup final.

“There are nine games to go this season, so if you’re talking cup finals, every one of them is a cup final – they’re all opportunities to pick up points to get us towards safety.

“The bottom line is that we have to go out and handle the pressure and win a few games and I’ve got no doubt at all that we’re a good enough side to do that.”
