Williams: Positives to take in defeats

Defender praises impact Micciche and Millen have had on the defence since their appointment…

9 February 2018

It’s been little over two weeks since Dani Micciche and Keith Millen were named as the new management duo at Stadium MK, however, George Williams believes the duo have had an impact both on and off the pitch.

Although Micciche is yet to record a win as MK Dons manager, the signs of change have been clear to see.

“If you look at the last two games we’ve had under Dan there are a lot of positives to take,” Williams told iFollow MK Dons in his pre-match press conference.

“We’re obviously disappointed not to get the win in the two games, but I think the fans can agree that the style of play has been good and we’re adapting to the new regime.

“When Keith and Dan came in, they highlighted that we’ve been conceding early goals and we needed to cut that out of our game.

“We focused on making sure we are tight and resolute at the back and that has worked. We’re all very disappointed that we haven’t kept a clean sheet against Coventry or Walsall – but we’re working hard to rectify that.”

Micciche bolstered his defensive options in January by adding both Elliott Ward and Josh Tymon to the squad, a duo that Williams believes have settled in well and despite conceding just one goal against both Walsall and Coventry - Williams won’t be content until the Dons start recording shutouts.

“If I’m honest, conceding one goal is one goal too many! The gaffer has made it clear that clean sheets are really important so we’re looking to keep the goals out. I think down the other end, we all need to step up and get the goals - once the goals start coming the results will come with them.”

Williams added, “Both Elliott [Ward] and Josh [Tymon] have come in and added quality. Wardy is very experienced and has fit in straight away, Josh is a younger lad who comes with a lot of Premier League experienced.

“They are gelling into the squad well, we’ve got a really good group here so it doesn’t take long for the players to fit in.”
