Williams on Crewe

15 January 2016

LUKE Williams says that Town need to impose themselves on Crewe when the Railwaymen come to the County Ground tomorrow afternoon.

The caretaker manager also assessed how the Alex may approach Saturday's game despite being rooted to the bottom of the League 1 table.

“There comes a point when there’s almost no pressure," he said. "You feel like you’ve already lost everything, you’re at the bottom and all your worst fears have come true so possibly, as a group of players, you say “let’s just give everything, be brave and try things that we ordinarily wouldn’t try” and that can be a problem. At the same time you’d probably rather play a team that’s at the bottom than a team that’s at the top. If you don’t beat the teams at the bottom, you’re relying on trying to beat the teams at the top and it starts to become very daunting.

“If we impose ourselves and give them that sinking feeling then we can come away with the points."

With Tuesday's trip to Port Vale falling foul of the weather, Williams reflected on a free week for the Town.

“It’s a fine line because there’s momentum (to think about)," he said. "If you win you want to play again so you can continue that good feeling and that momentum which we had with four back to backs (wins). There’s a fine line between that and wanting to make sure players are fresh and rested and that you can get working during the week.”
