JANOI | THAT'S FOR THE BOSS

18 September 2021

"We need to show that we are backing the gaffer and I think we’ve done that"

Janoi Donacien paid tribute to manager Paul Cook after Town picked up their first win of the 2021/22 season at Lincoln.

Macauley Bonne’s first-half header proved to be the decisive goal in a 1-0 victory, Town also securing their first clean sheet of the campaign with some resolute defending.

Paul’s father sadly passed away last week, with the Town squad wearing black armbands as a mark of respect in last weekend’s Bolton fixture.

Asked if the team wanted to win at Lincoln for the manager, Janoi said: "We did. We spoke about it in our group chat, that the gaffer needs us.

"The gaffer needed us to back him. We need to show that we are backing the gaffer and I think we’ve done that. I’m so pleased for him.

"Today, we got it over the line with some resilient defending. Our positioning was terrific and, as a team, we defended so, so well."
