Johnnie: As good as we’ve been this season

Our manager’s thoughts on today’s win

3 December 2022

Johnnie Jackson felt this afternoon’s second-half performance against Grimsby Town was representative of our side’s best performance of the campaign.

Ethan Chislett’s goal on the hour mark proved to be enough to secure a 1-0 win which moves the Dons into the top half of the League Two table.

It was a showing from our squad which clearly please Johnnie, as he waxed lyrical about the qualities he saw.

Watch the full interview on our Official YouTube Channel. 

“It was a really good performance and a good win,” he said. “It was very professional. To a man we were outstanding. Once we got the goal, we knew we would have to defend our penalty box because Grimsby are a really good team.

“The spirit and the resoluteness on show in today’s second-half is up there with as good as we’ve been this season. It’s a win that gets us into the top half and now we want to build on it.”

“We know all about Ethan’s quality. He scored a poachers goal today, it was something that a striker would do. He’s got the license to get into those positions.”

Paris Maghoma was one of the standout performers for our side throughout the 90 minutes on a day when everyone put a shift in for the cause.

“Paris was excellent. He covered a lot of ground. We all know about his ability when in possession but I think what he did out of it was equally impressive. He was one of 11 starters who all put a shift in.”
