Williams: High-quality but cagey

19 March 2016

TOWN Head Coach, Luke Williams spoke to the media after the 0-0 draw at Coventry City.

On the point...
I saw two good sides that probably were both very wary of each others' attacking strengths and making sure they gave away as few chances as possible. So, high-quality football but more cagey than we’ve seen in previous games. I think both teams had shots on goal but nothing maybe until the end - Tyrell Belford making a fantastic save - but nothing as clear-cut as we’d like. Once we get to 88 minutes I full expect us to score at least one goal but there were a couple of moments where I though there was going to be a repeat of recent protocol with Swindon Town and we'd score late on.

On the travelling supporters...
Magnificent is a perfect word to use because I can assure every single one of the fans that made the effort today that the players were very aware of their presence. It gave them a huge boost and I'm sure they're still talking about it and how they helped them to keep fighting. It’s important for the boys. It's something that the fans are maybe not aware of but on the pitch we do appreciate it hugely. The more times they can come out in force and sing the better.

On the clean sheet...
You want to score - you can't win a game of football unless you score but it's important we start to keep clean sheets.

On Tyrell Belford...
I think the boys will all talk extremely highly of Tyrell because every day he's prepared and huge credit to him. It really is a sign of how professional he is that he can come in and not only play at the drop of a hat but be alert right to the death. He showed today that when he's got the time he can see a pass and make a pass.

On injuries...
(With Rapha Branco) it's nothing to keep him sidelined for a period of time. We’re fortunate we've got Jamie (Sendles-White) that can step in. Lawrence (Vigouroux) clashed with Nathan Thompson in the Millwall game and developed a dead leg as the days went on so it's something we thought could have got serious. Both Thompsons were sick at half time. When you’ve got two boys that are prepared to give everything - that's something every coach dreams of. At no point either suggested that they need to come off and it didn’t appear to affect them in any way.
