Manager Keith Hill On Competition For Places

4 August 2017

Manager Keith Hill has told iFollow that he believes the addition of Matty Done brings “unbelievable competition for places” to the squad.

“It gives me the flexibility to play certain players against certain teams, and rely on other players to make an impact as a substitute,” said Hill.

“Done could, and he will, end up being a big player for us. During his last spell here, his partnership with Ian Henderson was supplemented superbly by Peter Vincenti, but we’ve got that option in the players that we’ve recruited and the players that we’ve retained – Steven Davies and Calvin Andrew, so it gives me great flexibility for 46 league games plus cup games, and for substitutions.

“Substitutions are very important within games, whether it’s sealing a game or chasing a game, and I feel as though I’ve got that in abundance now.”

He continued: “As a manager, you think you recruit well but the real test is playing the games.

“We’ve got good players who play good football when we are hot, but it’s when we are less hot that we need to pick up more points. I believe that we’ve got a squad that’s capable of doing that.

“The indication of how well we’ve done/ how well we’ll do this season is going to come after 36 games, going into the last 10 games of the season where you’ve still got 30 points to play for.”
