Hef­fer­nan does it again for Don­caster

Bray People - - Sport -

PAUL HEF­FER­NAN’S red hot streak con­tin­ued last Tues­day night (Fe­bru­ary 10) when he scored the only goal of his side’s 1-0 win over Bris­tol City.

‘The Heff’ latched onto a pass from James Cop­pinger in the fourth minute of the game and while the Bris­tol City de­fence ap­pealed in vain for an off­side flag that never came, New­town man Hef­fer­nan slammed it past the City ‘keeper for what proved to be the win­ner.

Don­caster Rovers moved up to 15th in the Coca-Cola Cham­pi­onship thanks to this win, and they also be­came the in-form team in English foot­ball.

The Dons as­sis­tant man­ager Richard O’Kelly was rightly de­lighted af­ter the match, and he of course had a few words of praise for the goalscorer.

‘ Heff had an ex­cel­lent game tonight; not just his goal (that won the match) as his also did on Satur­day,’ said the beam­ing Dons’ num­ber two.

‘His work rate, his in­tel­li­gent move­ment in the chan­nels and his gen­eral hold-up play has been bril­liant.’

Hef­fer­nan’s strike was his sixth of the sea­son so far, mak­ing him the top goalscorer at the club.
