Di Canio - We Played With Maturity

14 August 2012

TOWN boss Paolo Di Canio spoke to the waiting media after his side's 3-0 win over Brighton at The County Ground...



On Town’s tactical approach...

I am very happy with the way we approached the game tonight. We have taken three or four steps forward and we played with maturity and with intelligence. We scored a fantastic free-kick against Brighton not against a non-league team like in pre-season, with respect.

On Navarro’s brace…

I told Alan at the start of the season that he would score nine to ten goals with us this season. He scored once for Brighton in a three seasons but scored two tonight. In my system he can do that and it was a good display. The second one was a deflection, but he was there with discipline and had the quality. All credit to him because he believes in what we are trying to do.

On collective achievement…

This was a squad victory. They were all committed and helped their teammates through the game. For this I am very happy and thanks to the players. It’s a good start but we must keep our feet on the ground because this is only mid-August.

On Devera’s display…

In the first half he was a bit shy but on and off the ball in the second half he was good. The manager can speak and teach, but the players helped each other tonight.
