Cambridge United boss Richard Money pleased with U’s focus

18 January 2015

Cambridge United boss Richard Money was pleased with the focus his side displayed during their win over Newport County.

The U's were comprehensive 4-0 victors courtesy of a brace by debutant Cameron McGeehan and goals from Sulley Kaikai and Liam Hughes.

Money's men have won all three of their fixtures in 2015 so far, two of which have come since they were drawn to play Manchester United in the FA Cup fourth round - which takes place in front of the television cameras next Friday.

"I thought we played very well," said Money. "We knew the way they play would test us but I thought we carried things out pretty much the way we wanted.

“We passed the ball well and scored really good goals. It was a really pleasing afternoon all round, apart from Tom Champion's injury.”

Money was quick to stress that the upcoming cup clash was not a distraction to his squad.

He said: "I understand everyone's questions about next Friday but for us it's been crucial that we get the two results in between. We didn't play well at Carlisle last week on a really difficult day, today we've got the result and we've played well.

“At some stage we'll start to think about what's in front of us but certainly not now.”

McGeehan made his debut after signing on loan from Norwich, following a loan spell with Luton last term, and he struck twice in a fine individual display.

"When we bring in someone like McGeehan it's a little bit out of the normal," Money explained.

"You don't go to Luton for half a season, play nearly every game and help them get promoted and not be somebody out of the ordinary. We're delighted to have been able to get him. That performance was no surprise to any of us."
