Boss thrilled to cap great month

30 September 2017

Manager Gary Johnson was delighted to finish a strong September with another key victory as his Robins spoilt the party at Chesterfield with a confident 2-0 win at the Proact Stadium.

The home side welcomed new manager Jack Lester to the club as they looked to halt a run of defeats.

But Johnson’s men with at their clinical best to record a first away victory in Sky Bet League Two since February thanks to two goals from in-form striker Mo Eisa.

“It’s the end of what has been a good month,” he said “We have scored goals and we have got a few monkeys off our back – we have got another one off today with a solid away win.

“It can be difficult when you go to clubs with a new manager with a vocal home crowd, we had to quieten them down. The lads played fantastically.

“We saw two great finishes from Mo (Eisa) and he was a little bit upset to come off, but I love him to death and although he wanted to stay on and get his hat-trick I needed a fresh runner up top. I was being cruel to be kind.

“He is a great finisher and is dangerous. Defenders don’t always know where he is.

“We are playing better football and that means Mo can lose people. Two great finishes and I’m proud that he is here.”

Johnson was delighted with his entire team and also praised Jerell Sellars who came into the team for the injured Kevin Dawson.

“Just when I thought Jerell (Sellars) might be tiring he picked up the ball, ran 100 metres in 7.3 seconds and went past four or five of them,” smiled Johnson.

“That is why we brought him in – he is going to be a fantastic player for us. We’ve got to look after him but I felt he needed 90 minutes and the confidence.

“The second half was all us and I didn’t know how they were going to get in. I am thrilled.”
