DYLAN Connolly has no intention of toning down his passionate ways.

City fans have taken to the on-loan Wimbledon winger and how he loves to celebrate wins and goals.

Connolly, who is yet to score himself, is often seen roaring at the crowd at the final whistle.

But he insists that it is no act.

He said: “People say it to me all the time but I can’t hold back. It’s in my nature and just happens when I step on the football pitch.

“It all just comes out because I’m really passionate. It’s my will to win.

“It’s hard to hold in but I’m not going to change now. I think it shows my passion and desire to do well.”

Connolly is set to make his 20th appearance today at Crawley and admits he loves the rapport with the City support.

“We bounce off each other, which is good,” he added. “They get us going when times are tough on the pitch.

“They drive us on when we need them, especially when there are so many of them.”

Gary Bowyer has used Connolly in a more advanced role in recent games as a strike partner for James Vaughan. But that breakthrough goal currently eludes him.

Connolly reckons it is coming – but has no special celebration up his sleeve.

He said: “You’d be surprised but I don’t really celebrate goals.

“Once I get the goal, I’ll probably just come back to the halfway line like normal!

“I’m doing all the right things to get goals. I’m creating chances and getting assists.

“The team is doing so well, so I try to put it to the back of my mind.

“It will come and once you break the duck, then you’re off and running.

“Peter Crouch at Liverpool took something like 17 games to score and then he scored lots of goals.

“It’s one of those things and I’m not really thinking about that. As long as the team wins, I’m happy.”
