It’s all about winning

John O’Shea says the Reds must ensure they pick up three points at the JJB Stadium on Saturday no matter what.

With key league clashes coming thick and fast in the next eight days, the Irish international says it’s vital the Reds maintain their advantage at the top of the table with victory over Wigan.

“We know we have to win games now. It’s coming to that stage where wins are so vital and we’re going to have to commit men forward and really go at teams.,” he told

“This time of the season is always exciting and a period which as players we look forward to.

“We’ve watched some of the clips of Wigan and their counter-attacks and set-piece deliveries and we know if we don’t play well we’ll have a very tough day.

“With the players we have in the squad and the mentality of the team we’ll be going there to create lots of chances and hopefully we can take them.”

John was talking to, Magic 1152 and PA Sport.
