Martin O'Neill has said he told the team prior to todays match that 3 points were vital, and he praised Gabby's second half strike for being exactly what we needed to see out the game.
Speaking on the official site after todays 2-0 win over fulham, a relieved Monny was pleased to see us pick up the 3 points before we have yet another international break.
Singling out Gabby for the majority of the praise, the manager said:
'Gabby was terrific. It was just a fantastic goal. He said modestly in the dressing room: 'I just hit it.' It was a brilliant strike.
'We were looking good at the time but that second goal just about won the game for us. We saw it through comfortably in the end. That was great for him. It was nice to score in front of the Holte End. The crowd was right behind him and the team.'
Admitting that the team were a little apprehensive before the match, no doubt the result of those pesky fans who get upset when we play like amatuers, he called the crowd fantastic and no doubt hopes that our 3 wins on the trot will turn into some serious form:
'It was very pleasing. We were a bit apprehensive before the match because it was a home game in the league. But the crowd were terrific.
'We now have six points and it takes us into the break with plenty of positives.'
Should we get Dunne as rumoured, and maybe, hopefully, a striker to boot and we can find our form and start putting in more Liverpool type performances whilst also taking points from those games we are dire in the season will take on a far more happy slant for all.
