Hendrick Pleased With Everton Win

Hendrick Pleased With Everton Win

Midfielder Jeff Hendrick has spoken of his delight at scoring the winning goal in the weekend's tie with Everton.

Heading to Goodison Park for the game ahead of going into October's international break, Hendrick secured all three points in the 21st minute of the game and whilst the hosts dominated, it was an organised performance and the goal itself wrote its own headlines with a 24 pass build up.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media following the game, Hendrick was quick to praise the overall team performance on the day.

'The lads worked the ball well from side to side and then a great switch across and thankfully I was on the end of it. But it started way back earlier than that and it was a great goal. Hopefully we can slowly change the perception people have of us.'

Hendrick went on to say.

'This year we have played some great football. People think we are a 4-4-2, long-ball team but I don`t think we`ve played 4-4-2 often this year. But we don`t mind. We have the confidence in the group and we just need to keep that going. We have started the season well. We want to get a result from every game and we want to keep pushing. Teams know they are going to get a hard game when they play us. We will fight to the end. We are working hard every week in training and we want to be as high up the table as we can be.'

The goal was the Republic of Ireland's first of the campaign and it obviously extended our unbeaten start to the campaign away from home.

'It was massive. We have started the season brightly. They have been under a bit of pressure and getting a bit of stick from different people so we knew the game was a bit more about us and putting our style of play on them. We got our goal and then they grew into it in the second half. They changed formation and pushed a lot of people forward. It was difficult, but we ground it out as a team. They put a lot of balls in the box but the lads at the back were clearing things, getting their bodies in the way. They were brilliant and everyone out there worked so hard.'
