Willo relishing Foxes test

Player of the Year excited to take on former Premier League champions this Friday...

27 July 2017

George Williams believes Friday’s friendly with Leicester City provides an excellent final pre-season test for MK Dons ahead of their Sky Bet League One opener.

It’s just over a week until the Dons kick-off their season for real against Wigan Athletic at Stadium MK but before then, Robbie Neilson’s side have one final warm-up match against 2015/16 Premier League champions.

“Each pre-season game is a test and we’ve got Leicester on Friday which will be the biggest test of them all,” Williams said after Tuesday’s friendly against Brentford.

“It's good to keep building as a team through, because there are a lot of new lads. We'll keep building so that we go into that first game fighting fit and ready. We're all just itching to go on August 5th.”

While Williams & Co would like to cause an upset and beat the Foxes, the defender was keen to stress that in pre-season, the result takes a back-seat.

“At this stage (of the season) it's about gelling together, as well as the fitness levels.

“There are a lot of new faces here but they've settled in well and we are all gelling well together - we’ve got a good group here.”

Tickets for Friday's friendly with Leicester City are priced from just £10 adults, £8 over-65s and £3 under-18s, while under-12s can attend for FREE*.
