Jonah Is Getting His Rewards By Getting Forward

10 September 2018

David Artell has been pleased with James Jones' hunger to get on the scoresheet more often.

The attack-minded midfielder netted a late winner at Tranmere Rovers to seal a dramatic 4-3 comeback from the Railwaymen and the tidy finish from Callum Ainley’s perfect pull back was his third goal of the season, following his terrific brace on the opening day of the season.

He was also in the right place to make sure Jordan Bowery’s towering header against Macclesfield Town had crossed the line. That goal was credited to Bowery after he had leapt to beat the Macclesfield goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara in the air.

Artell likes the fact that Jones is getting his reward for getting in the penalty area.

“Jonah wants to add goals to his game and he has the knack of getting in the box or in-and-around it to get shots off, “said David.

“It is important that our midfield players chip in with goals and assists and he is doing that. Even if he is not having the best of games, he still keeps getting in there and he is being rewarded for that.

“He was in the six yard box to make sure Jordan’s header was over the line against Macclesfield and he was there again to finish after Callum (Ainley) found him to score the winner at Tranmere. “
