O'Nien: We need to carry our momentum into Morecambe

25 April 2017

Luke O'Nien praised the team's efforts vs Doncaster and is hoping for a repeat display at Morecambe this Saturday.

Two goals from the midfield engine was enough to hand the Chairboys all three points against league leader Doncaster Rovers last weekend; a result which cut the gap to the top seven to just one point with two games remaining.

O'Nien's two goals were his first for the club since November, where his last strike came against this weekend's opponents, Morecambe. Although the 22-year-old, who an inclusion in the EFL Team of the Week, was thrilled to be back amongst the goals, the three points are what meant the most to him after an impressive display in all areas of the pitch vs Rovers, which meant it was just one defeat in seven against the division's top three sides in all competitions.

"I was delighted with the three points," he said, speaking after the Doncaster victory.

"Someone just reminded me that I hadn't scored since November before then so it was finally nice to get back on the scoresheet, but the massive thanks goes to Bayo as he is an aboslute weapon to have up there, and he put two on a plate for me so massive plaudits go to him.

"Not just that, we've had some big defensive duties as well, so from the whole team they were class today and it was a great three points.

"We always seem to do well against the good teams, and although they are tough games the stats say we're stepping up to it, but now we've got two big games left and we need to cary on the momentum that we've got and take it into the Morecambe game."

Morecambe are the next obstacle in Wycombe's way this Saturday; a team who have caused many a problem for other play-off contenders in recent weeks.

After defeating Stevenage on Good Friday, Jim Bentley's men drew at home to Colchester on Easter Monday before two late goals denied them a point at Exeter last time out.

So O'Nien and the team are expecting a stern test from the Shrimps, and know they will have to be at their best to come out with the result they need.

"We've got to recover now and all focus and attention has got to be on Morecambe," he added.

"We've got to do our homework as they are a good side, and everyone in League Two is capable of beating anyone as you can see from how tight it is.

"So you can never take a game for granted and we're going to go up to Morecambe looking to put in a good performance."
