Playing in central midfield tonight as per BBC.

49. Brilliant, brilliant goal Tom O'Connor - a curled effort from 25 yards, far corner from Smith's pass inside! #BAFC

Burton Albion's Twitter account had the first one down as an own goal.

I've been keeping an eye on their games via Flashscore and they've been having him centre mid mostly this season but he didn't start every game. Think he might have had an injury. 

You wouldn't know with this lad. He's one of these guys that was probably a GAA prospect first and foremost and progressed well eventually in football. He was prodigious in hurling and Gaelic football apparently- even as a Kilkenny man. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.the42.ie/good-counsel-st-brendans-2073369-Apr2015/%3famp=1

Definitely one of our lower profile emerging players. Seems to have found his position as a defensive midfielder now, he had moved around a bit before that. Could easily be one who progresses to a higher level in a year or two and comes in to the national team discussion, but obviously plenty of other midfielders coming through around his age that he will have to compete with.

Will probably go on to have the best career out of the three lower league O'Connors (Tom/Lee/Paudie).

Don't forget Anthony. He got an assist for Morecambe in the same game. Meanwhile, contrasting fortunes for Darragh and Daire over in Scotland.

If I was ranking the O'Connors by potential at the moment the order would be:

Tom
Paudie
Lee
Darragh
Daire

Leaving out Anthony as he's 28 so unlikely to have much more development in him.
