Gutted George remains positive

11 October 2016

George B Williams knows first hand not to be too disheartened with league positions at this stage of the season.

Last season the defender was part of a Barnsley side who found themselves inside the Sky Bet League One relegation places at Christmas but then turned things around in the second half of the campaign to eventually reach and win the play-offs, earning promotion to the Championship.

While Williams isn’t promising the same outcome this season, the 23-year-old is confident the team can climb the table.

“Last season I was at Barnsley and we were bottom of the table come Christmas time and then we ended up getting promoted,” he told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“We just need to stick together, keep playing the way we are and I’m sure the results will come.

“We’ve got great players. You look at the performance (on Sunday) and see it was really good. If we were playing badly then we might have something to really worry about.

“We’re all together and behind the gaffer. We’re sticking together and I’m sure the wins will come.”





“I felt we were solid defensively as a team and they didn’t really trouble Dave that much. It’s just that first goal, it’s so crucial.”

“It’s just that first goal. If we get it, it’s a completely different game because they’ve got to come at us and open up. They got it and stuck everyone behind the ball and it was hard to break down.

“It’s gutting to lose, especially as I thought we did so well. We dominated the game and started well too.

Although positive about the Dons’ chances of bouncing back from Sunday’s defeat to Port Vale, Williams wasn’t hiding his frustration at not getting any points from the Stadium MK clash, insisting that the first goal in any game is crucial.
