INTERVIEW: Jodi Jones Reflects On Win Away At Lincoln City

19 November 2017

This past weekend, the Sky Blues bounced back to form in League Two, with a 2-1 win away from home against Lincoln City.

City fell a goal behind after Matt Rhead gave the hosts the lead in the first half, but a second half comeback saw Mark Robins come away with all three points.

Winger, Jodi Jones led the comeback, as he scored the equaliser and helped create the chance for Duckens Nazon to get the second of the game and complete the turnaround.

After the final whistle, we spoke to Jones and he told us about the graft that went into the performance, to make sure him and his teammates would come away with the win.

He said: “It was a graft, obviously we grafted all the way to then end and it’s good to come back from 1-0 down.

“Sometimes away from home you can go 1-0 down and it’s difficult to get a result, as the other teams will try and see out a 1-0 result, but we done really well and created loads of chances.

“We did really well as a team and going a goal down isn’t easy and we did really well to come from a goal down to get the win.”

The Sky Blues number 11 was at the vocal point for both goals Mark Robins side scored and after getting his first goal, he admitted he was thinking before the game about putting one in the back of the net against a familiar face.

“I saw their goalkeeper’s name on the team sheet before the start of the game and one of the first times I got called up to the Dagenham and Redbridge Reserves I scored past him and I was thinking I was going to score past him again today and I did.

“It was a great ball from Jordan Shipley and 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.”

At Sincil Bank, it was another sell out in the away from the Sky Blues supporters, something that is becoming a familiar trend in League Two.

Jodi was full of praise for the 1,460 fans that had made the trip to Lincoln, as he helped to put a smile on their faces, come the final whistle.

“Our fans are amazing they do their best every week.

“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.”
