Williams delighted to repay fans faith after back-to-back wins

Defender reflects on important week for the Club…

21 March 2018

Prior to last week’s clash with Rotherham United, MK Dons sat seven points adrift from Sky Bet League One safety - fast-forward a week and the gap has been cut to two points.

Wins over The Millers and Bury respectively have enabled Dan Micciche’s side to close the margin to two points in what proved to be an important week in the Dons’ battle for survival.

Speaking to iFollow MK Dons, George Williams praised the support of the MK Dons faithful, who have stuck with the team throughout a spell of unwanted results.

"The fans have been brilliant as I know it has been tough for them. They've always backed us and turning out in their numbers against Bury really helped.

"You could hear them singing throughout the game and we're happy we could repay them with six points – hopefully, we can repay them again against Blackpool."

The win over Bury showed a different side to the Micciche's men as they had to dig deep and fight tooth and nail for three points, as appose to the complete performance that saw them overcome Rotherham earlier in the week. Williams noted the importance of winning ugly and believes their flexibility can only benefit the Dons during the final games of the season.

"We showed the versatility we have last week because I thought we played really well against Rotherham and that was a really good win. Against Bury, we all know we didn't actually play that well but it was important that we showed we can scrape a win and credit to all the boys for digging in.

"Back-to-back wins is huge for us – it's amazing what six points can do. We said before the Bury game that the result against Rotherham doesn't mean anything if we didn't back it up that afternoon so it was very important to do so and we did that."

The 24-year-old also feels that six points can only boost the confidence within the dressing room as they approach the run-in.

"If you look at our recent games we've been in all of them and only lost by one goal so the confidence was always there that we would get the win it was just more a case of when it would come and fortunately we got two on the bounce and now we are looking forwards hoping to put a run together."

Williams added, "We're looking forward to that and another home game which is good because we've turned this place into a bit of a fortress in the last two games, the fans have been really good to us and backed us well so we're looking forward to putting on another display for them."
