Boldewijn: "We earned it"

Enzio felt we controlled proceedings

20 October 2019

Enzio Boldewijn was pleased with the way we handled the pressure of being expected to win against Belper Town in the Emirates FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

The Dutchman scored our first goal of the afternoon as we came from behind to earn victory and book our place in the draw for the next stage.

And he was happy with how we handled a tough test at Meadow Lane.

“We had to stick to our plan, which was to get possession and keep playing,” said Boldewijn.

“We did that very well and came from behind to earn the result, which is positive as well.

“When you're expected to win and the opposition sit in and wait for your mistakes, these games are tough.

"But we had control and earned the win.”

The winger netted his fifth of the season, cutting in off the right flank to curl the ball home just after the half-hour, and he’s pleased with the contributions he has been making.

“It’s always good to score and be important for the team,” he said. “I want to help in every way I can with goals and assists.

“From the right it’s natural for me to go wide and cross but sometimes I like to cut inside and shoot.

“When it works it goes like that, which is very good, and you have to try.”

Boldewijn has been growing more accustomed to doing the other side of the game this season, regularly tracking back to help out the defence - a responsibility he’s enjoying.

“I try my best and work hard for the team in every match,” he added.

“I have to chase defenders back sometimes and stop crosses, but other times I get on the ball more and can be dangerous, so it’s a mixture.

“I’m not worried if I have to do the hard work – I try my best to do that every game and I’m getting better at it, but I know there is still lots to improve.”
