THE THOUGHTS OF BIG SAM

SportsLinc caught up with Whites’ boss Sam Wilkinson after last night’s win over AFC Stamford.

He said: “We have moved up four places so we are delighted with that.

“I thought we dominated most of the game. We were really good from start to finish.

“Maybe we could have done better in the final third and scored more. We created enough chances to win by three or four.

“We said at half time that if the lads kept playing like they were we would eventually score.

“We also defended well and limited them to just a few chances. I am really happy with the way we defended.

“James Blunden was superb. They kept saying play on the number six but he dealt with everything Stamford threw at him.

“The whole back four were superb and that’s why we kept a clean sheet.

“Sean Wright can play anywhere he is asked and he was superb again tonight in front of the back four.

“Not only did he win first and second balls he relaxed us a little bit by putting his foot on the ball.

“It’s only his second game of the season in that position so he will gradually get better.

“The two yellow cards he received were a bit disappointing but we have got the squad to deal with it and it gives someone else the chance to step up.

“We always thought we would get back to winning ways in the league. We have won our last three league games.

“It’s always better to have points on the board and if you go on a really good run teams will begin to fear you and that’s what we intend to do.

“We aim to go and attack teams and score goals.

“We have a good solid defensive base but we still want to score goals.

“We play high-energy, high-tempo football and not many teams can live with that.

“Perhaps we could have put out our foot on it a little more and slowed things down a bit in possession.

“Saturday’s game against AFC Rushden and Diamonds will be tough but we will have a right go and try to keep them on the back foot.

“It was toe-to-toe last time and finished 3-3.

“We are not going there to defend.”

ALWAYS LOOK ON THE WHITE SIDE OF LIFE.
