Patience pays off for lucky charm
Date published: 27 November 2012
CONNOR Brown is chasing down a personal fourth successive victory in an Athletic shirt.
But it remains to be seen whether the full-back starts at Doncaster tonight.
But if he does, the 21 year old aims to add to his 100-per-cent record when named in the opening line-up.
At Portsmouth in September he was the guilty party who remained on the pitch while Cliff Byrne was dismissed. But Brown later took over the three-match ban originally, mistakenly, handed to Byrne.
On regaining his spot at Hartlepool on the left of defence, then staying in the side for the home victory over Shrewsbury, Brown knows he has given his boss a tough decision.
“I have had to be patient and when my chance arrived, take it,” said Brown.
“I will just have too see how things go — all I can do is try to keep playing well and make the manager’s decision a hard one.”
