Consistency is the key for Sean Scannell.

Manager Mark Robins was pleased with the 23-year-old’s performance against Leicester, but believes there is plenty more to come from him.

Scannell is pushing for a 10th start of the season in Saturday’s season-ending Championship clash at Watford.

The former Crystal Palace player, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at youth, Under 21 and B level, has also made 32 appearances from the bench this term.

Against Leicester, Sean showed more in terms of his ability to get on the ball and beat a man. He was one of brighter aspects of our attacking play,” said Robins.

“Against Brighton on Good Friday, I thought he was excellent in terms of giving us numbers and bodies behind the ball.

“But it can be difficult to get both sides of the game from him, and I’m still looking for more from him.

“He will be disappointed with the number of minutes he’s had on the pitch, but also the return he’s given from them.”

Scannell, who has scored once this season (in the 5-0 home win over Barnsley) still has 12 months on the three-year deal he signed when moving from Palace, where he came through the academy.

 

He played 141 times for Palace (73 starts) and scored 13 goals.

His overall Town figures are 34 starts, 45 outings from the bench and four goals.

Scannell’s elder brother Damian plays for Conference South club Sutton United having previously been at league clubs Southend and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Town Juniors will play their Professional Development League II play-off final against Crewe at the John Smith’s on Saturday morning (11.00).
