MATT: WE NEED TO STAY COOL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

MATTHEW Con­nolly knows how to win pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier League – and the Wat­ford loa­nee has re­vealed the se­cret is to stay calm.

Con­nolly, on loan from Cardiff, has been pro­moted to the top-flight three times in his ca­reer – with the Blue­birds, QPR and Read­ing.

The 27-year-old de­fender said: “I’ve done it a few times be­fore, so hope­fully I can help. It’s just about keep­ing cool.You need to take each game as it comes, as the cliche goes.

“We have a big game on Fri­day (Derby away), and a big game on Mon­day (Mid­dles­brough at home). If we can win at Derby, we can get some good con­fi­dence go­ing into the next one.”
