O’BRIEN’S A REAL AID FOR LI­ONS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Chris Dunlavy

MILL­WALL’S Ai­den O’Brien ad­mits he is as sur­prised as any­one about his level of ver­sa­til­ity.

The 21-year-old Ir­ish­man grew up lead­ing the line as he grad­u­ated through youth team foot­ball.

But O’Brien ad­mits work on the train­ing ground has shown there is more to his game than he re­alised.

“I al­ways thought I was an out and out striker but the coach­ing staff have made me be­lieve that I can play in any of the for­ward po­si­tions,” he ex­plained.

“Through­out my ca­reer, I was al­ways a num­ber nine but now I can be ef­fec­tive get­ting down the wings or in be­hind the striker and that is suit­ing me re­ally well.”
