Willo happy to play wherever for MK Dons

Defender enjoying life at Stadium MK…

9 October 2018

George Williams has been a regular in the heart of the MK Dons defence this season and ha already racked up an impressive five assists in just 14 appearances.

The majority of his games have come as a centre-half, however, more recently Williams has been deployed as right wing back.

Having assisted Chuks Aneke for the opening goal against Cheltenham last Saturday, the defender then produced a delightful cross for Rhys Healey who headed home from close range late in the second-half.

The defender noted in his post-match press conference that he has no favoured position and would play anywhere if it means he features.

"I don't have a preference," he told the media. "I've played all across the defence throughout my career - as long as I'm playing I'm happy - I don't have a preference."

Williams was speaking after The Dons' impressive 3-0 win over Cheltenham Town, a game which they controlled. "I think the performances have been coming, we've had that blip of draws but it's important we move on.

"We've looked really good in recent weeks, it's all coming together. The final piece of the puzzle was getting the goals and we scored three at home - I'm sure the fans will be happy.

"What if we turned them games into wins? The important thing is we didn't lose them, back-to-back wins is really good we just need to keep it going now.

"I've not even looked at the table as you can go up and down this league in an instant. We need to keep where we are and push ourselves up the table."

Williams also reserved special praise for Rhys Healey who since arriving at Stadium MK has netted three times in five starts.

"Rhys has been brilliant since he's come in he's worked really hard and is always running, he topped off a good performance with a goal and the boys are happy for him.

"I'm not a striker but I'm sure it's frustrating if you miss a chance, that's when the good players come through and he took his goal well."
