Quinn Delighted with Derby Day Goal

Last updated : 21 April 2009 By Site Editor

Quinn equalised for Town 10 minutes after on-loan striker Dave Mooney put Norwich ahead after 15 minutes of the first half. A Giovani Dos Santos penalty put Town ahead on the hour mark before a last minute Jon Stead strike doubled Town's lead.

Norwich converted a injury time penalty which Quinn personally conceded, however it was not enough for the visitors who now are deep in relegation trouble with just two games remaining, including one against promotion challengers Reading.

Speaking to the EADT about the game, Quinn said: "I don't know who Norwich have next and I'm not really bothered. I'm just looking at us and getting another three points next week and finishing the season on a high.

"The fans were brilliant - I just wish they were like that every week. The gaffer was under a bit of pressure but all week the training has been good and we have enjoyed it.

"The gaffer just said he would take the pressure and we should just enjoy the game and we did. It has been disappointing at home although our away from has been great."

Of his equalising goal, Quinn added: "It was a great win. I don't score many goals so I was delighted to get that one. It was a great ball in from Pablo and a lovely touch from Gio so I was pleased to get there and finish.

"We started the game very well and the only thing that was going to trouble us was set plays and it was a set piece and Mooney got a great head on it and they scored from it."

In relation to the penalty he gave away in injury time, the former Sheffield United midfield admitted: "It was stupid. I don't know what I was thinking. I thought I could beat Big Al in the air but I didn't.

"Maybe the referee thought he would even it up with the penalty but we hung on for the last couple of minutes."
