LOAN defender Dara O'Shea says he has found it easy slotting into the Hereford back line.

The Irish centre-half has impressed during his two games for the club and will be with Bulls until January.

O'Shea is a West Bromwich Albion product after joining the Baggies on a scholarship deal three seasons ago.

"Hopefully I will get as many games as possible," said O'Shea.

"We will see what happens after January, but I'm just concentrating on my football at the moment.

"I don't want to look that far yet, I just want to take each game as it comes."

O'Shea says Southern League football is good for his development.

"It might not be as technical as I'm used to, but it's very physical and it's why I have come here," said O'Shea, who has played for West Brom Under-23s.

"I have come to play the men's game and get used to it."

O'Shea was sent off in his first game at St Neots on Saturday for two bookable challenges.

"It was a stupid mistake on my part, I will learn from it and it's not going to happen again," said O'Shea.

"The first one, I stopped the keeper playing it early and the second one, I just had to make a tackle because they were on the counter."

O'Shea will now miss this Saturday's FA Cup First Round Qualifying encounter against Godalming Town.

However, the 18-year-old is unavailable anyway due to playing for Ireland Under-19s.

"I'm heading off for Ireland Under-19s for two friendlies against the Czech Republic," explained O'Shea.

"I played last year for the Under-19s and this is my big year for them."
