5 August 2023

Quotes from Mark Bonner following the 2-0 win over Oxford United...

  • Overall thoughts on the win...

"I thought we were very good and were good value for the result. I thought we played very well, particulary in that first 30 mintues - the blueprint of the game was exactly what we want to look like as  team.

"The goals were excellent and we had a good defensive structure against a very good team who will do well this year.

"It was a really pleasing afternoon - clean sheet, goals, a brilliant crowd, briliant attendance and great atmosphere, but a really exciting start for us and hopeully one we can build on."

  • On the new signings...

"It is a new team so it will take some time to develop but we saw lots of good things out there today.

"They all made a really good difference. It was great for Jack [Stevens], when you play your old team it is always tough, so really pleased with him, he kept a good goal.

"Danny [Andrew] played well, the boys that came on did ever so well and really pleased with Gassan's performance aswell."

  • On other performances...

"Saiks [Saikou Janneh] was brilliant, Brophs [James Brophy] gave us a very good threat, George Thomas gave us good control with the ball and I am delighted with Jack to score.

"I thought there were lots of good things there and really pleased with those that didnt start came on and made an impact in the game."

  • On togetherness and looking ahead...

"The group is together very, very quickly in a short period of time. We have got a group that are really fighting for each other and we saw that in lots of moments in the game.

"Now we have to use Tuesday's game to get some minutes for others and then go to Fleetwood next week and hopefully follow that with an equally good performance on the road.

"That was the blueprint for what we need to try and do here, winning games here is going to be important for us and we want everyone to come and enjoy it. I loved seeing the crowd as it was today, so hopefully we can back that up next time we are here."
