KIERAN'S PRAISE FOR DEFENSIVE UNIT

28 January 2022

"Having consistency there can help build a solid base"

Kieran McKenna has highlighted the importance of defensive trio Janoi Donacien, Luke Woolfenden and George Edmundson.

The back three has remained consistent in all of Kieran's five games in charge, keeping three clean sheets and winning four games in the process.

"It's an area of the pitch where you like to have consistency," Kieran said.

"Having consistency there can help build a solid base. They have been very important, but all of the players in that unit have been doing well.

"The system suits them as players, in different ways, and having them there gives us more flexibility higher up the pitch.

"We've been keeping a good number of clean sheets but the lads have also contributed going forward.

"George and Janoi have been very aggressive with overlapping and underlapping runs, and Luke in the middle of that has been distributing the ball well and organising and leading the backline.

"We're happy with the balance and the personnel, but we also have strong and experienced players behind them. We're happy with the options."
