Lukas Talbro pleased with 'two good games'

B Team defender looks back on Shamrock Rovers victory and Dundalk defeat

11 February 2018

Lukas Talbro was in a good mood following Brentford B's 2-1 victory over Shamrock Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

The Danish fullback played 90 minutes in a game that saw his side have to come from behind to snatch a victory in the dying moments. 

"I think we are pleased with it," said Lukas, speaking to iFollow from the Tallaght Stadium after the game. "The performance wasn't good today but yes, it's always good to get the win."

Fellow defender Jarvis Edobor popped up to score the winner with his first ever goal for Brentord B just minutes after Theo Archibald had levelled the match. Lukas was proud to point out that this shows the squad never gave up.

"It definitely showed character, and from a set-piece as well," he said. He then admitted: "We usually concede from set-pieces and don't score too many goals from them so it was definitely good to score this time.

"We were told [at half-time] to just believe in ourselves, go out and play the way that we play. Everyone just had to step up because the first half wasn't good enough."

That game was the last in Brentford B's tour of Ireland for February 2018 and it's been one that the 18-year-old has enjoyed.

"It's been a decent trip," said Lukas. "We had a really good game against Dundalk and this was a relatively decent game as well, so yes overall we've had two good games."

Kevin O'Connor's men lost 2-1 to Dundalk on Wednesday in front of an energetic crowd that picked up on anything that went wrong in the ranks of the red and white. On Saturday afternoon, they were more forgiving but it's still something Lukas has learned from.

"Oh definitely," he said. "It brings a good atmosphere and we're not used to that, not all of us anyway. So it's good for us, it's another good experience and it's nice to try sometimes."
