Jonson: I'm Here to Win

16 March 2015

Forward states his intentions as club enters last ten games of the season.

Jonson Clarke-Harris endured a bittersweet Doncaster Rovers debut on Saturday as him and his teammates went down 2-0 at the hands of Peterborough United.

The Posh leapfrogged the hosts in the hunt for a play-off place but the Rotherham United loanee forward was just happy to be playing.

“I’m happy to get minutes and play games but I’m here to win,” said the 20 year old.

“I’m disappointed with the result but happy to wear the Doncaster Rovers shirt.

“We had four or five chances – including my penalty claim in the first half – but all round we probably weren’t good enough though I feel we should have got something from the game.”

The lively forward had a mixed starting birth – including strong claims for a penalty turned down – but will look to put that right on Tuesday against high flying Swindon Town.

“It’s a blatant penalty, I’ve beaten him to the ball and he’s nudged me in the back but the referee said it was shoulder to shoulder,” Clarke-Harris bemoaned.

“There’s a lot of disappointment, we’ve made some mistakes which have cost points but we have to look to Tuesday because that’s a massive game so we’ll pick our heads up and go again.

“This is a chance to get regular games, it’s ten minutes from my house and I don’t need to move anywhere. I know a couple of the lads so it’s easier for me.

“I want to have a smile on my face, want to be picked and do a job for the manager.”
