Midweek reaction from Jobi McAnuff

22 October 2020

After a full midweek schedule, Leyton Orient’s Jobi McAnuff has his say on the action following some big performances!

Joao Pedro has a bright future for Watford…
“It’s really important for Watford to win more games than they did last year, I thought they had a good start to the game against Blackburn and a great finish from Jao Pedro for his goal, who’s had a real good start to the season. He only made three sub appearances last year, but he’s started every game for them this season and he’s going be a big player for them with a bright future.” 
On Ivan Toney’s start to life in the Championship… 

“It was all about Ivan Toney last night, he really ran the show from the first minute. The combination of his anticipation to follow the shot in for his first goal and tuck it away easily, and then his second goal I love because it’s all about his desire to get in front of his man. He was unlucky not to get his hat-trick” 

On Cardiff City and Harry Wilson...

“When you look at the balalnce of the game, I think Cardiff will actually be really happy to have got a point in the end against AFC Bournemouth. Bournemouth dominated, but it was a really good finish from Harry Wilson, something we’ve seen many times from him at Derby and Bournemouth themselves, coming onto the ball late."

Cantwell key to Canaries promotion hopes…

“Norwich City have done really well to keep hold of Todd Cantwell. If they’ve got any ambitions of going up, he’s going to be massive in that, his footwork was on show this week dancing through the defence and causing them problems."

A true captain’s performance from Ben Whiteman...

“He’s very important to everything Doncaster Rovers do there, and he shows that stepping up for the penalty and scoring important goals at important times."

Johnson Clarke-Harris filling shoes of Ivan Toney 

“Clarke-Harris is going to be really important to that Peterborough side, and he was probably given too much time in the box for his goal, but it’s a good touch and finish.” 

On Paul Mullin’s red-hot form for Cambridge
“What an unbelievable start to the season, he’s never had a season like it. He’s banging goals in and represents Cambridge United’s electric start to this season. He gets himself in the right areas, and he’s a striker that works really hard.”
