Jonah Has To Keep Getting There

5 September 2016

Steve delighted as Jones gets off the mark with late winner against Donny.

Steve Davis has encouraged Saturday’s match winner James Jones to continue to get into the opposition’s penalty area and get his shots off. Jones scored his first goal since February 2015, when he latched on to a knock down from right-back Ollie Turton and tucked it beyond the Doncaster Rovers goalkeeper Marko Marosi with just three minutes left on the clock. Jones' first goal of the season sealed a hard fought 2-1 win for the Railwaymen.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “We were pleased with the two goals because we have been encouraging the players to get into the opposition penalty area as much as possible. We want them to get in there and take those risks in the final third.

“I was delighted for Jonah because we have been on at him to get in the box and to score more goals for us.

“He has to keep getting in there because if he does he will get his rewards. Things will drop for him and the more times he does get in those positions, the better equipped he will become in taking those chances. Things will drop for him and he knows he has to try and add more goals to his game.

The boss added: “Danny (Hollands) or Billy (Bingham) provide that platform for him to get forward. They will sit centrally and it gives others a licence to go forward. Jonah has that great energy to get there and we were delighted for him.”
