Post Derby | Jason Sraha

21 October 2023

Jason Sraha chatted to the media after the defender put in an impressive display during our win over Derby.

A goal from Tom Bayliss saw Town secure a deserved 1-0 win over the Rams at a bouncing Croud Meadow.

Jason, on his second league start for the club, put in an outstanding performance in the back three - with the 20-year-old impressing defensively and going forward.

Speaking to the press, Jason discussed the game, his impressive recent form and how much he is enjoying playing alongside Chey Dunkley and Tom Flanagan.

On beating Derby:

"It felt good. We were at home and I felt in the last game we should have got three points as well.

"The boys were just like, go out there and keep doing the same things we have done in the previous two games.

"We did that and we got the three points."

On the team's performance: 

"It was a good performance. The gaffer said before the game to have togetherness, to play with pride and to play with emotion and I feel we did that. That’s what got us the three points.

On the clean sheet:

"Sometimes you’ve just got to dig in. Derby are a good side. When it gets to those late stages you’ve just got to dig in and show passion, show desire. You just have to keep concentrating as well - just to get that clean sheet, a big clean sheet.

On the chances created at both ends: 

"Both keepers made some big saves, game-changing saves.

"Marko especially at the end, a big hand. I feel like there was a lot of chances but when you dig in and get the three points it’s a good feeling."

On the atmosphere at the game: 

“The crowd helps you a lot, especially when you get to the late stages of the game, we just need that extra push and they definitely gave us that, I really appreciate it.” 

On seven points out of nine: 

"We just take each game as it comes. Seven out of nine is good but we want to keep going and keep pushing."

On his two league starts in a row: 

“I just keep working. Obviously, I didn’t start at the beginning of the season, but I just kept working and kept training.  

 “The gaffer believes in me so that helps, so when I get out there I just follow the game plan and do what I do.” 

On having Chey Dunkley and Tom Flanagan alongside him: 

"They help a lot day-to-day, speaking to you, helping you, because they’ve played the game, I don’t know how many years. 

 “They really know the ins and outs and the dark arts of the game, that’s what I need to learn being young.

"I just soak up as much as I can from both of them.” 

On impressive defensively and going forward:

"The gaffer gives me that license to express myself in the final third so once I get up there I just try to express myself and do what I do, get balls in the box, beat people one vs one. 

“It’s just being effective in both boxes.” 

On facing his former club Barnsley:

"If we just do what we do, we can go down there and put a performance in and the rest will take care of itself.” 

“Hopefully we can have a positive performance. We just have to take care of what we need to do as a team and the rest follows.”
