Luke enjoying ‘work in progress’

28 November 2019

Luke Williams has been in his Assistant Manager position for just over two-weeks and says he’s enjoying the working relationship he’s developed with Russell Martin.

With no game this Saturday, Luke Williams met with the local media to discuss the early weeks of his job at Stadium MK.

While 38-year-old insists he’s enjoying life with the Dons, he knows the staff and players need to remain calm in order to turn results around.

“The first few weeks have been great. It would have been nicer to get some points - it's a work in progress.

“We have to be calm, panic is not the state of mind that will help. We've got time, and provided we use it correctly, we can come out of this sooner rather than later. There might be a stage down the line where our mentality has to change and some crazy drastic things need to be done. But now is not that time.”

Williams also feels his relationship with Russell Martin, Dean Thornton and Ryan Harley is one where the quarter can provide different ideas and come to a mutual conclusion that’ll benefit the team.

“I try to reflect on situations I was in that I can see unfolding with Russell and try and tell him if I did something that went disastrously wrong, tell him not to do it! Hopefully, I can help as much as possible.”

“Everyone has slightly different opinions on how you want a team to play. Russell has got to put in what he believes will work, and it will take time. The team is conceding too many goals, and you can see that in the goal difference. There is plenty of work to be done there. We need to stop leaking goals as quickly as possible. We can only work logically, day-by-day and we have to go through the process.
