Midfielder happy with his role in the team

5 January 2021

Shaun McWilliams is pleased with his recent form.

The midfielder came back in to the side last week after having served a suspension, and was impressive in both the win over Gillingham and the draw with Sunderland.

"It was a big point for us," he said as he looked back on Saturday's game.

"If you had offered us four points before those two games (Gillingham and Sunderland) we would have taken it.

"Maybe we could have nicked it on Saturday but we took a good point from the game."

McWilliams also took time out to reflect on his own performances, and he says he is pleased how his game is developing under Keith Curle.

"I am pleased with my form," said the academy product.

"I am in the team to win the ball back, to get possession for us and if I can do that then it can only help the team.

"I aim to try and win possession as much as I can, to win as many second balls as I can and to play as many forward passes with purpose as I can and that suits me and my game. We don't just want possession for the sake of it, we want possession with a purpose.

"We have a short break in between matches now, we want to keep playing but we know we have a busy period coming up so we will take the break and get ready for the games ahead."
