John-Jules returned from injury to make his second start for Lincoln City this weekend, and he played a pivotal role in the final result.

After forcing a great save in the first half with a header, John-Jules got his first Lincoln goal in the second. He controlled the ball expertly before finishing into the bottom corner in composed fashion.

After that, John-Jules popped up at the other end to protect Lincoln’s lead. He initially blocked a goal-bound header, before clearing the follow-up opportunity. Typical of his work-rate all over the pitch.

You can watch all the highlights here. Here are the timestamps of the replays involving John-Jules:

  • 0:46 – Header, well saved by the Blackpool goalkeeper.
  • 1:00 – Goal
  • 1:16 – Goalline clearance

Ian Wright certainly enjoyed John-Jules’ first professional goal:

There’s already a lot to talk about in the early days of John-Jules’ loan.

He made a positive debut, creating a couple of good chances. Then he had a minor injury, forcing him to miss their game against Bolton this week. Thankfully, he recovered to score at the weekend.

There are plenty more games to come this season. The more experience John-Jules can get of professional football, the better his chances of some involvement for Arsenal next season. This is a great start.
