Webb previews “probably one of the biggest home games of the season”

Assistant manager Danny Webb spoke with the media ahead of Saturday’s big home game against Oldham Athletic, which is live on TNT Sports at the earlier kick-off time of 12:30pm.

Danny began by reflecting on the late 2-1 win at Oxford City earlier on in the week.

He said: “It wasn’t our best performance that’s for sure but we got the job done and that’s the important thing.

“It was essential for us to pick up all three points and we did so we can’t complain too much, but it’s important that we improve on our performance.

“If we can win when we’re not at our best then it’s a good sign, we’re still positive but there’s things to improve on.

“You could argue that there was no one better in the squad than Will Grigg to receive the ball in that position at that moment.

“That’s no disrespect to anyone else in the squad but with his experience it was definitely a good player for the ball to fall to.

“He made no mistake, it was a great finish and that’s what we brought him to the club for, he’s top class.”

Oldham are expected to bring a large away following on Saturday and Danny touched on the importance of the home atmosphere.

“It’s a big game tomorrow, probably one of the biggest home games of the season,” he said.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s early or late in the season three points is as important now or then.

“We’re looking forward to the game and Oldham are expected to bring a big following so we’re really urging our supporters to get behind the lads.

“It would be great to see all three sides of the stadium rocking and really getting behind the lads.

“Their supporters won’t just see it as a day out, they’ll be coming here wanting to win. I don’t think Oldham fans will accept being underdogs tomorrow.

“They’re a big club with a massive following. Their supporters won’t settle for underdogs coming here and we have to match that.”

Danny finally gave an update on the fitness of the squad. He said: “Armando Dobra is back in contention for tomorrow, as is Tyrone Williams.

“Whether they’ll be in the 16 or not is a different thing, we’ll see. They’re both fantastic players and bring real quality to the squad so it is a headache for the manager.

“We’ll have to wait and see but there will be discussions about that today [Friday] and then the squad will be picked.

“It’s great to have these headaches though as it shows the quality of our squad.

“Bailey Clements is still a few weeks away from full action but the positive news is that he’s returned to some form of light training.”
