Right-Back In The Groove

24 August 2012

JOE Devera is looking forward to another home test against MK Dons with the versatile defender eyeing up another maximum points return.

Devera has played the opening two games of the League One campaign at right-back and was delighted to have featured in the midweek victory over Crawley Town.

“Tuesday was a massive win for us and a first three points of the season and we want to keep going now,” he told the official site after training on Friday. “There were a lot of positives to take from the game – the clean sheet, the goals we scored and it could have been four as Flinty had one disallowed.

“I had a hand in the third goal which Rafa finished off really well. Personally I thought I should have scored myself too but it didn’t happen.”

Having arrived at SN1 last summer as a centreback, Devera’s versatility has proved useful for Paolo Di Canio with the former Barnet man lining up at right-back against Crawley.

He said: “I am used to playing at right-back having played there for Barnet a lot. I’m a centreback but happy to play there as required.

“It’s a different type of fitness playing at right-back so I still need to get my full-back fitness, but I am nearly there. It’s coming along but I can’t wait for the MK Dons game which will hopefully give us the opportunity for another win.”
