"If we play as well as we can, then I’m sure we’ll come away with the three points"

Janoi Donacien admits that it took a little while to get over the nature of Saturday's draw at Oxford, but says that Town are now fully focused on putting in another strong performance this weekend. 

Bersant Celina's opener looked to have sealed all three points after a dominant second-half display at Kassam Stadium, just for Luke McNally to pop up with a 95th minute equaliser following a corner as the points were shared.

The result leaves the Blues six points adrift of the play-offs with seven games to go ahead of hosting fourth-placed Plymouth at Portman Road this weekend. 

Kieran McKenna's side are, however, unbeaten in 10 games, and Janoi remains confident about Town's ability to take on the best that the league has to offer.

"It took me until Monday to stop thinking about it," the defender told the Club website when reflecting on Saturday's game. "It was a tough one to take after we played so well. 

"We feel like we’ve been the stronger team in pretty much every game we’ve played under the boss. Apart from patches in games, we’ve not really given up much and we’ve shown a lot of what we can do as well.

"We need three teams to slip up [to get into the play-off places], and we need to capitalise and punish teams - especially when we play them like on Saturday against Plymouth.

"It’s really just about focusing on us. If we play as well as we can, then I’m sure we’ll come away with the three points. I feel like, on our day, we’re the best team in the league and we’re capable of taking on anyone in the league."

Tickets to watch Town take on Plymouth remain on sale here.
