McDonnell on Target Again
Saturday, 7th Oct 2017 18:17
On-loan Blues midfielder Adam McDonnell netted for the second game running as Aldershot drew 3-3 away at Maidenhead in the Vanarama National League.
The 20-year-old, who scored his first senior goal since his Shelbourne debut in July 2014 in Tuesday’s 1-1 home draw with Dagenham and Redbridge, headed the Shots’ second of the game three minutes before half-time to give them a 2-1 lead. The Irishman was subbed on 74.
Blues defender George Fowler, who like McDonnell recently had his loan at Aldershot extended until the end of the month, was an unused sub.
Elsewhere, striker Kieffer Moore was subbed in injury time having been unable to add to his nine goals for the season as Rotherham won 1-0 at Rochdale.
The 25-year-old remains League One's joint-top scorer along with former Blues Brett Pitman, who yesterday was named the division's Player of the Month for September, and Jack Marriott, these days with Portsmouth and Peterborough respectively.
Right-back Josh Emmanuel, who like Moore is on loan with the Millers for the season but with Town able to cut the spell short in January, was an unused sub.
Central defender Chris Smith played the full 90 minutes as his loan club Chelmsford beat Eastbourne Borough 5-2 at the Melbourne Stadium in the National League South

The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
