Lincoln win was a 'graft' says goalscorer Jodi Jones

FOOTBALL: TEENAGE striker Jodi Jones revealed Saturday’s win at Lincoln City was a ‘graft’.

The former Dagenham and Redbridge contributed one of the Sky Blues’ two goals as City came from a goal down to beat Lincoln 2-1 in front of a capacity crowd.

It was Jones’ fourth league goal this season, and the forward said Saturday’s win was the result of a team performance.

He said: “We did really well as a team and going a goal down isn’t easy.

“I saw their goalkeeper’s name on the team sheet before the start of the game – one of the first times I got called up to the Dagenham and Redbridge Reserves I scored past him.

“I was thinking I was going to score past him again, and I did.

“It was a great ball from Jordan (Shipley) – I broke my back to get to it and it’s gone a bit wide but I’ve come inside and shaped it up.

“I was told to keep going inside and outside of the fullback so he wouldn’t know where I was going to go next and I went inside for the goal and managed to get a shot off.”

Jones was not only full of praise for the team, but also the travelling supporters – all 1,460 of them.

“Our fans are amazing they do their best every week,” he said.

“Away from home you can hear them more than the home fans and it makes for a really good atmosphere for us and to play in.”
