It’s ‘Joy’ Dasilva with first senior goal

Jay Dasilva celebrated his first senior goal to end any ‘stick’ from his teammates on the long journey home from Yorkshire.

The wing-back scored from Antoine Semenyo’s 77th-minute cross and then provided the assist for Jamie Paterson's winner after 83 minutes.

It was a fitting end to an evening in which the Robins had looked comfortable, save for a lapse at the end of the first half which saw Josh Koroma put the Terriers in front.

“I’m buzzing to get my first senior goal. The boys have been giving me a bit of stick about it to be honest so I’m happy to get off the mark and also to chip in with the assist for Pato’s goal,” Dasilva told Robins TV.

“It was disappointing coming in from the first half a goal down because we felt very comfortable and very solid at the back so that was a bit of a punch on the nose for us. But we had that message of ‘keep going, keep doing the right things and soon it will pay off’ and it showed great character and resilience from the boys to turn the result around.”

Dean Holden introduced Famara Diédhiou for Tommy Rowe after 58 minutes and then Paterson for Chris Brunt and Semenyo for Nahki Wells in a 67th minute double change.

Dasilva continued: “It’s important that everyone’s involved and is staying ready and that showed today. Ádám (Nagy) came in and played brilliantly and the boys coming off the bench and impacting the game…Antoine with the assist, Pato for the goal and Fam doing what he does – being a nuisance and creating good things for us.

“Antoine is so powerful and such a strong player for someone so young - he is showing great signs of what he can do.”

After defeats to Middlesbrough and Norwich City, Dasilva said it was important to get the three points, adding: “We’ve been a bit disappointed with the last few results, especially with the way we’ve played we could have got more from the games, so it was a big win for us leading into Friday’s game against Cardiff so we just need to kick on.”

City versus the Bluebirds is live on Sky Sports but because of EFL broadcast rights, the match will not be available to supporters via Robins TV.
