McCullough Indicates Improvement

21 October 2014

International says hunger is there to iron out inconsistancies.

Luke McCullough has said that he wants to translate his international form on to the domestic scene with Doncaster Rovers.

The Northern Ireland international has been part of Michael O’Neill’s side which have stormed to the top of their Euro 2016 qualifying group with victories over Hungary, Faroe Islands and Greece; their best ever start to a qualification campaign.

“You learn how to conduct yourself and keep standards high and that’s what we talk about every day in training with Doncaster,” said the twenty year old.

“We made a bit of history and it’s brilliant to be part of that so it’s very good but that’s it for another month or so, so I have to concentrate on being back here.

“Once we [Rovers] get a couple of good results under our belt it seems natural for us to take the foot off the gas and we need to address that.”

The defender has been a virtual ever present for Paul Dickov’s side in his second season in South Yorkshire since signing from Manchester United.

“I know I can improve because I’m young but I’m happy I’m in the team because I’ve tried establishing myself there but I’m not resting on my laurels and I can’t be complacent about it,” McCullough said on his start to the season.

“We’re all just anxious for Tuesday to put it [the Fleetwood performance] right.

“Orient have got great players in their team and we won’t be looking at them as weak, despite their position, and we’re both going to fight for a result so it should make for a good game but we’re concentrating on ourselves because we have so much to put right.”
