Stockport County Reaction

Last updated : 09 October 2004 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
For Bournemouth, manager Sean O'Driscoll is praising Brian Stock, especially after the exquisite free kick he scored to fire Bournemouth in the lead last night - with the keeper rooted to the spot: "Brian's been exceptional. He's always had ability and shown it in flashes but that was about the sixth game on the trot that he's played well. He took responsibility, which is what we asked when we lost Carl Fletcher, and he's really come to the fore".
Exquisite Free Kick To Put Cherries 1-up

For Stockport County, manager Sammy McIlroy said of last night game, and Warren Feeney's return: "I know what's going wrong, and there's no way I'm going to walk away. We're not that far off - I've got a good bunch of players here who are giving me 100% and I know what to do. But we've got to win at home, there's an anxious feeling about the place .... It was hard for Warren to come back here and he got a bit caught up in the atmosphere, which was natural, but he got a goal and he's got this game out of the way".
