Bowery on ‘good performance’ at Grimsby

15 April 2023

Mansfield Town forward Jordan Bowery commended a ‘good away performance’ as the Stags extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 1-1 draw at Grimsby.

The 31-year-old turned home the opener on 39 minutes following a cross from Elliott Hewitt.

Assessing the clash at Blundell Park, Jordan said: “[It was a] good point in the end. Obviously [Christy Pym] made a good save with the penalty and then [we did] concede from the rebound. You’ve got to follow [the ball] in but that’s what happens.

“It’s a good point on the road.”

The forward broke the deadlock prior to the break as he found the back of Max Crocombe’s net following a cross from Hewitt.

“It was a good ball in by Ell (Elliott Hewitt), he put it onto an area [which caused a threat on Grimsby’s goal].

“They said from the start the left-back hadn’t played all season, he’s been out for a while. ‘Get on him, be aggressive with him’ and I feel like we did that for the majority of the game.

“The ball came into the box and I think I just wanted it a bit more than him. It just dropped down and [I had to] then hit the target.

“I feel like we started well but we’ve just got to kick on. When we get one goal we need to go and get more.

“I don’t feel like they had many chances. We got into their box quite a lot and we caused them a lot of problems and it was just that final part of the game that was missing.”

After featuring at left-back following Stags’ array of injuries, Bowery played further upfield today as he looked to influence the game going forward.

“I enjoyed it. It’s nice to be back up there and contributing with a goal. That’s what I’ve always wanted to do.

“I feel like I’ve contributed and got the team a point.”

Stags’ 1-1 draw with Grimsby extended their unbeaten run to seven games with another vital clash coming up against Newport County on Tuesday night.

“We’re in the final stages of the season and we’re pushing for something, so we’ve got to go out there and a point’s the minimum we’ve got to be getting.

“Hopefully we keep up our away form and go there (Newport County) on Tuesday and try and get the three points.”
