U'S WINGER DAVID AMOO SAYS UNITED'S IMPROVED ABILITY TO WORK HARD AT GRINDING OUT GAMES WILL PROVE PIVOTAL IN THE FORTHCOMING FIXTURES.

The 27-year old, who bagged his second consecutive match winning goal at the Abbey Stadium against Port Vale last weekend, credits the victory solely down to a disciplined team display in which every man from front to back turned up for the fight.

He said: "Overall, you can put it down to a good team performance. I mean when you look back at our defenders and they were up against Tom Pope who is a very difficult striker to deal with, and I thought the defence did a great job to restrict him.

"It's a real team effort, even more so than we have maybe had before you know, because then you get Dimi in goal playing very well, the midfielders in Deegs and Maris working so hard all the way through up to big Jabo who really holds the ball up fantastic to help us defend from the front.

"It was about grit and determination after getting the early goal. It was about focussing and staying put in the game and working hard for each other. I feel we are getting better at grinding out games, which is important and that will only help us leap up the League.

"It was actually a tougher game than we have had for a while with all the conditions added to a strong opposition, so to get the three points is massive and obviously the most important thing."

Whilst it was his 20th minute left-footed strike that ultimately proved to be the decisive stroke at the Abbey last Saturday, Amoo pinpoints a variation in the U's overall attacking play that has become a real weapon in recent weeks.

"I think we can mix our game up and have been doing so in attack very well recently. I think we can play when we need to, we can go in behind their defence also, and we obviously have Jabo up there who can muscle it up and we can the ball play up to.

"There was a good build up to the goal last weekend, so we need to continue to mix it up and have good variation to test whatever team we are playing. It's about having consistency in being able to change it up in games.

"And it's obviously also important that whilst we do want to be playing forward and exciting football, that we also do our jobs in defending well. We did that last week and can build on that further in future."
