‘Ruthless’ Marcus Dinanga can be a massive player for AFC Telford United this season, according to boss Gavin Cowan.
The 22-year-old striker was overshadowed by Daniel Udoh on his return to the club last season, having netted 25 goals on loan at the New Bucks Head from Burton Albion in 2017/18.
And Cowan wants Dinanga to get back to that level – as he battles fellow new-boy Aaron Williams, as well as Andre Brown, for a place in the Bucks’ starting XI.
“He comes alive when we’ve got the ball,” said Cowan after watching Dinanga score twice in Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Market Drayton Town. “We know he’s still got to work hard with things to work on.
“He’s a player that has knack scoring goals, if he gets chance he puts them away.
“He’s a massive player for us, as is Andre (Brown) and Aaron (Williams).”
