George Williams on upcoming trip to Plough Lane

24 March 2022

George Williams offered his thoughts to the media ahead of Saturday's match against AFC Wimbledon...

On his first season at the Club...

"It has far exceeded my expectations to be honest. Joining a new team, you never know what to expect but I have loved it. I've enjoyed my football personally and I think as a team we have performed above expectations too.

"I had heard good things about the Club and the positive atmosphere. Going forward, if we can finish strongly and set a benchmark of where we want to be, I think that is exciting. If we can push beyond that 50 point mark it sets a bar for next season we can look to build on. It's a young team, it's a great team and we are all looking forward to what's ahead, but we can't set that standard until we get those points on the board so Saturday is going to be huge for us."

On finishing the job...

"The table is there for us all to see but until it's mathematically impossible you can not get complacent. I've seen it before when teams go on great or terrible runs so you can't get too excited. It's very much a case of focus on Wimbledon.

"I have learned in League One to never be surprised. It's such an undpredictable division. For ourselves, we want to finish as high as possible. We have done well so far but we want to keep striving to get as many points on the board and do as well as we can.

"We have got some big games coming up. Having played in League One for a while, it is the strongest I have seen it on paper with the teams that are in it. We get to experience a few more of those away days still to come and it's great for us and great for the fans.

"We need to get some results. I thought we were excellent against Milton Keynes and really unlucky to not get at least a point. We need to turn them [performances] into three points."

On how to get a result this Saturday...

"We will do a bit of analysis on them today and see where we can exploit them but we have just got to focus on ourselves. Our best games have been when we have focused on ourselves, played the way we play and everyone has been at it and that will be key.

"You can do your bits and bobs and analyse the other teams but as long as we are at it - as you have seen against Newcastle and other teams - when we are on the same page and are doing our jobs we can get points against anyone.

"Saturday is no different. If we focus on ourselves and start the game well we will be in a good place."
