REACTION | Bower happy to be back

Connor Bower says it was good to be back in a Dons shirt in the win against Coventry Bears on Sunday.

The centre scored a brace after two months out through injury, and believes coming into a winning team made it easier for him.

He said: “After a couple of months out it was nice to be back on the scoresheet, but the main thing was always going to be the result.

It’s good to come back into a winning team, the results we’ve had are standing us in good stead heading into more tough games.

“I was blowing a bit in the heat with it being my first game back, credit to the boys in the middle because they did a lot of work.”

The win against Coventry was the Dons’ fourth in a row, and Bower says they are building momentum at the right time of the season.

He added: “We made hard work of it at times, Coventry stuck at it and made us put in a strong performance to get the win.

“It’s been frustrating being on the sidelines but the boys have been outstanding, I’ve been doing my recovery and staying involved with the group.

“At this stage of the season everyone wants to be playing, all we can do is keep turning up week after week and putting a good shift in.”
