Pogba Response Was Excellent

Davis pleased with Pogba's transformation

Steve Davis was pleased with the response shown by Mathias Pogba in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Gillingham. The Alex boss had contemplated giving the Guinean International a rest following his out-of-sorts display against Oldham but after holding a chat with the powerful striker, he received the response he wanted.

Pogba completed the scoring at the Priestfield Stadium with a sublime finish and Davis says it was just reward for his hard working display.

Ahead of tonight’s clash with encounter with Notts County, Steve said: “I decided to stick with Pogs because I could have left him out after his performance against Oldham. He responded in the right way.

“I had a chat with him in the office about not getting too frustrated with himself and what we need from him and he took that on board and gave the right reaction. He was really positive, he worked hard and it was great credit to him.

“He hurt the opposition and his goal was a reward for that effort. It was great to see what he is capable of in that front four. “
