Fejiri Okenabirhie post Dundee United

28 July 2019

Town finished their pre-season campaign with a 2-1 win over Dundee United at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

The home side got a goal in each half with Fejiri Okenabirhie scoring a penalty in the first and then a lovely diving header in the second.

After the game, Fey spoke to the press to give his thoughts on the game.

"It's been a hard five weeks of training, tactical work, physical work and it's good to put it all together and we can look forward to next week", said Fey.

"It is always nice to score goals but pre-season is more about the fitness work and tactical work, but scoring is part of that to help the team win.

"It gives you that confidence and that feeling of what it's like to win and we want to take that into the season.

"We got the win it gives you that confidence and we want to take into the season and try to win every game. "

Over pre-season Fey has been working with new signing Steve Morison as the pair looks to forge a partnership up front. Moro brings a lot of experience to the squad and Fey is looking forward to learning from him.

"We've been working on it all pre-season and it's been good", said Fey.

"Moro is an experienced player and he has a lot of attributes that I try to work with him to help the team.

"He has had a good career and has a lot of experience that we can all learn from.

"He occupies defenders and I try to work as close to him as we can and help the team."

There have been a lot of changes to the Town squad over pre-season as Sam Ricketts looks to build his squad.

"There are of new faces so it will take a little time to gel and get everything flowing as we want", said Fey.

"As the pre-season has gone on we have grown and added to it and hopefully we can take into the season.

"Pretty much from last year there are only a few players who are still here and I'm one of the boys who has been here a while.

‘It's good to know the club and the surroundings and there are a lot of new lads but we've gelled really well and pushing in the right direction.

The focus now turns to the visit of Portsmouth the Montgomery Waters Meadow next Saturday. The Sky Bet League One campaign will start against one of the fancied sides but Fey is looking for Town to do well in the game.

"We have been working really hard through the pre-season and are pretty much up to match fitness", said Fey.

"We can now look to Saturday and start the season well.

"The opening day always has got that extra bit about it and Portsmouth had a good season last year but we gave them two good games so I can't see why we can't get the 3 points."
